Default Out of Country "Welcome to T-Mobile..." call

Please Login to Remove!

So I recently have been drawn to this wonderful little device we call BlackBerry. I just changed jobs to a government contactor and my Verizon LG camera/video phone just wasn't allowed. I loved Verizons reception (until EV-DO, but I will complain about that later).

Anyways, I bought a 7290 through T-Mobile and I have had a wonderful time with the signal and speed of the device. So, yesterday, I recieve a phone call from a number beginning with a +. If I am not mistaken, that number was from Europe, right?

So last night I got fed up with Verizon, looked at a few months phone bills (average $86/month) for a phone with 50!! text messages outside of Verizon's network, and I decided to give T-Mobile a call and port my number to them and break my contract with Verizon.

While on the phone, I remembered that I recieved a voicemail from the "out of country" number. So right before I finished up with T-Mobile I checked my voicemail and it was a T-Mobile rep welcoming me to T-Mobile. I had 2 phones to my ear, so I couldn't tell if the caller had an accent, I couldn't hear much.

Is this normal for BlackBerry users and T-Mobile?

Voicemail? - did you travel ouside the US at all ?

last week while in the UK - received the following text message once I got signal :

"T-Mobile welcomes you to the UK! You may earn Hilton Honors bonus points or MilleMiglia miles whilst roaming our network. Visit www.travellingconnect.com "

also received a few other text messages depending what network I roamed to - such as o2 or orange..

So why you'd get an oversea's call - if you hadn't been roaming - is very strange indeed..

Nope, I have had the phone for a few weeks and I have been inside the States the whole time

I too, broke from vzw to tmo - and have been impressed with better reception (in my area) and hassle free calling - especially when roaming (such as Europe) - enjoy..
