The issue is that both phones seem to be getting their data from
Proxy Detected pmds342.bisb1.blackberry:3128

Which resolves to a RIM address.

The issue then is the unmodified phone apparently would get the same unlimited data as the phone with the APN deleted. This makes me question whether this is going to work...

Or maybe I am misunderstanding something?

I am travelling internationally next week but can't afford to receive the first bill because by then the 30 day cooling off period will have expired and I really don't want to see thousand-plus phone bills each month due to data usage. If I have to walk away from T-Mo b/c they don't offer international data packages, I need to do it before the 2 yr contract becomes in full force. I got the phones yesterday.

Thanks in advance
There are some apps that can only use the WAP APN, and almost all apps will resort to the WAP APN in the event that they are unable to reach the RIM network. By deleting the settings, you are preventing the phone from ever using any APN except for the RIM one, which is the one that does not incur extra charges when you have the unlimited international BlackBerry plan added. If you don't have this add-on, any data you use will incur charges.
