Default roaming and BIS

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,
I have a BlackBerry 9700 and summer's coming, I will be traveling pretty much all of it so I thought I should inform myself about the bis service in roaming.
My carrier says I will pay the national tariff 3/week plus the roaming tariff which is 0,8 cent / KB so that's 8,19 for 1MB which, if you ask me, is insane. looking at the other carriers I have 5/month plus 2/MB with H3G and 3/week plus 1/day for 1MB with Vodafone and finally, 12/month plus 0,3cent /KB with Wind.
I'd like to know how much traffic do I need, I gotta say the 2 per MB is the best offer I can get if you ask me but if the BlackBerry needs a little bit more, then the 1 a day offer is also convenient.
I will be using only the BlackBerry Messenger to send instant messages of course, not files, pictures or songs, I don't have many contacts and I have one email account configured and linked to my facebook account, which, of course, I could deactivate.
Which one would you choose if you were me?
Thank you in advance

You could shut off Data and jsut use the phone for call and texting.

From the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options.
Scroll to select Mobile Network option.
Change the While Roaming option from On to Off.
Choose Off for Data Services when roaming.
Press the Menu key and click Close after making the changes.

I don't wanna be rude but do you really think I would have searched for all this information if I didn't want data on my BB?
