Default Setting the Data Services to OFF when overseas

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have a query.

If I goto options -> Mobile Network -> set the Data Services to OFF. It will stop the mail synchronization.

How about other applications like CHAT ? Weather updates ?


I want to off all these except phone calls and SMS when I am overseas. Will the above do ? or I need to go to individual applications to switch it off (if any) ?

Thanks for the help.

Cheers

The above setting will effectively stop all data and leave you with phone and sms only.

Exactly what Penguin said. Stops all data. It'll save you loads of $$$ when roaming internationally. It even stops TCP/IP. You'll see the GPRS/EDGE turn to gprs/edge.

Using emails & pins out of the US is cheaper than a phone call.

Thanks all for the help.

I saw there is an option "Off when Roaming". Does it mean if I set to this option, when I go overseas, Data Services are automatically set to off ?

If it is, this is one great feature

Cheers
