With T-Mobile:

Get the Blackberry Unlimited Plan for $29.99 no minutes unlimited email and web browsing along with tcp. (For the U.S)

Next you add the blackberry unlimited international email for $19.99 and you will get your email for sure, now this part is debatable, some say it includes unlimited web browsing, others say it doesn't and both partys say they have bills for proof. I wish I knew for sure but my theory is that it is country specific when you get charged extra for data. Along with that I beleive Canada would be one of the countrys that you would not be charged extra for because the countrys I have heard of them charging for are places like Islands; one person I remember was on a cruise and they were charged whereas people in Europe (Germany, France, etc) were not charged when roaming.



Now I may be wrong about the browsing being with it so don't hold me to it, I'm just trying to help you get in a direction, it's your job to research this more in depth or conduct a trial. I beleive they charge $15 for 1mb while roaming so you can look at it that way too.

T-Mobile comes out the cheapest of U.S. carriers for data plans. But coverage is key so check out who has the best coverage in your area. A great plan with no signal is not a bargain.

Rogers is the roaming partner with T-Mobile in Canada.

What Figment proposes should work - assuming there isn't some loophole and you end up getting killed by roaming charges.

Anothing thing for you hoedepot, be sure to get signed up for the My T-Mobile website there you can track your data usage each day (usually updates at least once a day) and check to see if they're charging you overages. I hope everything works out well!

Actually, you don't need to go to the My T-Mobile site to track your data usage. You can do this right from your phone, just go to t-zones>my account>current activity and you will see how many calls forwarded, minutes, & texts that you used so far. Data isn't tracked as that is unlimited (assuming you got the unlimited plans).
So if it's working out for you so far hoedepot, then you've got it made.
