Hey All - just got my 7290 yesterday and still learning the ropes. I have a question regarding airtime and international travel. I have T-Mobile, with a BES hookup and unlimmited data plan. I was told by T-Mobile that when roaming international, there is a surcharge for data. My coworkers however, tell me that when they travel overseas, they never get any additional charges.
What I'm guessing, is that when on a BES, sending/recving email doesn't incur those charges - but web browsing will. Can anyone confirm this theory?
This leads me to the second part of my question. I also have my device set up to retrieve a personal POP mail account. From what I've read, this does NOT utilize the pull technology. Does this mean I will incur these extra charges for every POP mail I download? If this is the case, is there any way around this?
