| | A few roaming questions from a newbie
Please Login to Remove!
I am very happy to have found BBForums and I have my first questions.
I have read the threads RE using another SIM in a BB device. In my situation I have a BB plan from T-Mobile UK and I can get a separate plan in an EU country where I get unlimited data. If I put the SIM from the foreign provider in my BB will I be able to receive email? I thought yes as surely it can contact T-Mobile's BIS servers to download email and will it go through the same server for browsing?
The alternate option is to take out a roaming plan with T-Mobile. They offer me unlimited email access when roaming. Now, if I go through the BB access point/server surely it can be web too, how do they know what I am doing? If it is just email or I am surfing the web.
T-Mobile told me the maps are all on the BB Bold for Europe so there will be no charges abroad to use it, is that right?
I am a new BB user as you can probably tell.
Thank you in advance.
