2. I've heard that I will continue to receive email, however there will be a HUGE data charge ... true or false?

3. Along with the phone, will the DC work or will there be a big charge for that too?
Last time I was up in Canada, the roam worked automatically. You should see the Nextel on the screen change.

Not sure on the data arrangement Nextel has with Telus-Mike for email/web, but I believe that Telus-Mike and Nextel have an agreement on the phone/DC. So it should work exactly as it does when you travel to another city in the US.

I would check and verify to be sure.
