| | Disabling data services while roaming

I'll be using my T-Mobile 7100t in France where T-Mobile charges $0.99/min for voice calls and $15/MB for data. I use the Web Client rather than BES. To avoid running up substantial data transfer fees, I'd like to disable the BB email and browsing features and use the device only for voice calls (i.e., so I incur charges only when talking on the phone). According to T-Mobile tech support, the only way to do this is to go into Tools, Settings, Service Book, and delete the CMIME Web Client. To re-enable data services, I have to get to a web browser, log into the web client, and request that a new service book be sent to the device.
Is this the only way to turn off and on the data services? I was hoping for a simpler way to do it, so I could keep the data features disabled most of the time, but occasionally enable them for an hour or so to send or retrieve mail.
