Question Roaming Charges

Please Login to Remove!

I'm headed to Cuba in a couple days & I plan on bringing my bb with me. I dont have a data plan, just a social plan.
What do I need to do so that I dont get charged roaming charges?

Default Re: Roaming Charges

Best advice is to leave your BlackBerry at home if you want to avoid roaming charges.

Alternately, you could get a local SIM card when you get to Cuba.

Be sure that you turn your Data to Off While Roaming.

Only connect to WiFi spots and don't use the carrier network.

I was in Cuba a few years ago and it was GSM coverage only. May have changed since then.

I enjoyed that trip
