Default Data services on while roaming.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

Completely new to the Blackberry 8250. I currently have data services turned on while roaming, as this seems to give me a better chance of picking up a signal. Is it okay to leave both data services on and data services on while roaming. In short, will this setup not incur additional charges for UK use, as I have free Internet access via T Mobile and I want to keep it that way?

Many thanks,

David.

If you're roaming overseas, you will incur MONSTER data roaming charges. T-Mobile has something called World Class Roaming you can activate to alleviate those bills. I don't know if they're completely covered, but at least the charges won't break the bank. Domestic roaming data should be covered by T-Mobile's roaming agreements with other domestic carriers and won't cost you anything.
