I know the costs are really expensive. Since roaming charges are outside of the data plan (the "unlimited") one i have now. I was thinking, how much can i drop my monthly bill so that I can still use BB services, but i dont need this unlimited package since I will already be paying per MB outside of that plan. It would be great if I could pay no monthly fee at all and just be able to roam but I doubt that can be done? right now I have a voice plan, sms plan, data plan, so I want to drop that to the minimum as possible so that I can still sms/data for a week.
I understand that every carrier is different, but Cingular has an unlimited international data plan that's just $20/month more than the unlimited domestic data plan. Cingular is pretty good about letting you add and cancel features whenever you want -- again, that's my experience. You might see if Rogers has anything comparable in the way of plans and policies on cancelling features.
My experience with Cingular is that the international data plan isn't very expensive, but international voice roaming IS!
