Umm...this is not what happened with me. I had my phone OFF for 2 weeks in Europe this month, except for a few times I turned it on to get a phone number or check email. I was charged $68 in roaming charges consisting of brief incoming calls and then calls to VM, all in the wee hours of the morning while I was sleeping.

TMO refused to take the charges off. I complied with what the disclosure says and had my phone OFF! TMO on the otherhand does not tell you that all it takes is 1 time for your phone to register with the foreign network before getting hosed on roaming charges while your phone is OFF.

If anyone has any good tactics to get TMO to remove these charges please let me know.
