Default BB roaming

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to receive emails in Europe if phone roaming service is not enabled? Or anywhere else (except the US) where GPRS service is available?
I heard it is but worth asking.
Thanks.

yep, do it all the time. I blocked my phone service with TMO so i didn't receive wrong number calls coming in an incurring huge roaming charges.

That works -- you can block/cancel phone service and keep BlackBerry data, as a data-only service. You will lose phone capability including SMS texting capability, but you will have no problems with email assuming your plan is configured correctly.

I tried blocking incoming calls since I don't use my BlackBerry for phone, that blocking worked, but that also blocked incoming SMS text messages. So I moved the block, and took the risk of charges for people trying to ring my phone for long enough to get the clock running.
