Default International cost control

Please Login to Remove!

My daughter will be leaving for a 12-week junior year college term in Paris at the end of March. Her T-Mobile 8820 is basically attached to her hand at all times. I am very concerned about controlling the cost of her using her device in Europe. (We are based in New York). Two weeks in Greece and Turkey this summer left me with a $600+ data bill.
My daughter uses the BB more for email and BBM, and browsing, and much less for texts and phone.
I was hoping I could get some suggestions about how to minimize expenses. Is a replacement European SIM card a good idea? Or should she just get a disposable cell phone in France for voice and stick with T Mobile for messages. I understand that T Mobile has an add-on plan for $20/month that would give unlimited BB and BBM in Europe, but I don't think it includes browsing.
Thanks in advance for any advice that will help me avoid bankruptcy!
