Default T-mobile US Roaming & Data

Please Login to Remove!

I have two Blackberries on the T-mobile regional 3000 calling plan /w BIS. I have coverage in GA, TN, AL FL, & SC without any roaming charges. The first week in November we are traveling to St. Louis, MO. T-Mobile's roaming charges at $0.49 per minute when outside of my home calling area. Here are my two questions...

1. Would it be cheaper to purchase a prepaid SIM card for the St. Louis area to save on the roaming charges? If so, will I have access to data & email using the prepaid SIM?

2. If I choose to use my current SIM and calling plan, will I be billed for data roaming?

Thanks!

There is usually no BB data using a prepaid sim.

Does anyone know about the data roaming with my current plan?
