Hello DC/DC

You seem to have a wealth knowledge of international phone service.

I do have a question. Maybe you have a better answer for me.

I do have:
BlackBerry Unlimited
Unlimited International Texting for Individuals
Unlimited Domestic Messages

This summer, I will be traveling to Africa for a month.
I am trying to find a way to avoid a hefty roaming fees for using emails and texts only. Do I need a WorldClass service from T-Mobile?

Will my phone be working in Zimbabwe/South Africa if I disable the WorldClass feature?

Yes, you will need the WorldClass feature. This is the method by which your SIM card is provisioned for all international roaming services.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the quick response.

Even I disable epic.tmobile.com from TCP, still have to add WorldClass feature. Hopefully I don't get a hefty roaming fees.

Yes, you still have to have WorldClass. It is what triggers the system to enable your SIM for roaming.
