Question Using AT&T/BIS/etc service via another carrier's data plan

Please Login to Remove!

I will be traveling in Europe for a good part of the summer and want to avoid the roaming data slaughter. Unfortunately, AT&T's unlimited roaming data package does not include a few of the countries I will be visiting.

Here is what I was thinking of attempting:

1. Continue paying my AT&T Wireless bill that includes a blackberry/BIS plan.
2. Get SIM cards local to countries I will be visiting and enable GRPS data on those prepaid plans.
3. Use Blackberry mail + other internet functionality and pay those other carriers for the data transmission.

Does this make sense? My assumption is that AT&T can continue servicing my BIS account because I am still subscribed to it even if I use another network to access the data.

Has anyone ever tried this? I haven't found discussion of this scenario in any of the FAQs.

Sorry, but what you want to do can't be done.
You'd need a BlackBerry data plan provisioned on the foreign SIM card... which is not possible on a pre-paid SIM.

This has been discussed time and time again.... not sure why you couldn't find any topics.
