Im from Brazil, and 2 months ago I travelled to NY with my Pearl. I thought that my unlimited data plan was free for use worldwide. I checked email alot, used yahoo messenger, google maps and etc....
When the bill came up, I had to pay a fortune of data plan, because I was in international roaming. The unlimited data plan is only unlimited in the country where you belong.
Is there any away to disable all the data connection, and use only the blackberry as a normal phone? Im asking that, cause Ill have to travel again and I dont want to pay this fortune again!
In the profile menu, I choose Phone Only, but even with this profile set, I was able to check email and use data....It means, that this is not the right way to do it....Does anybody know how to use the phone just as a phone in international trips?
Thanks a lot!
