Default TMO: Unconditional Call Forwarding while roaming help?

Please Login to Remove!

Its obvious that TMO USA does NOT allow the customer to disable ALL call forwarding so my phone will ring and ring and ring instead of forwarding to VM and incurring their bogus .99 charge.

What is the best way to avoid this?

1. If I set up the unconditional call forwarding in the call settings to forward all calls to VM before I leave the country will I be charged anything when I turn on my phone overseas to use the BB data features?

2. What if I set the phone to forward all calls to another number? Will I be charged even though my phone does not ring when turned on overseas?

3. Is there any work-around to cancel all forwarding so the phone rings until the caller hangs up by using GSM codes etc?

Any other tips on avoiding bogus roaming charges will be most helpful!
