I contacted RIM but they told me that they cannot help me. I need to work with AirTel.
Also, I cannot use T-Mobile offered roaming service in India as it is $2.99/KB for data.
The T-Mo rate you cite is not correct. TMo charges $2.99 a minute for VOICE calls, but only 1.5 cents/KB for data. That's not so bad if all you get is e-mail or, better yet, e-mail headers. Just stay off the Internet and you should be ok.
