Wifi abroad
Ok so I'm from the UK, on holidays in the US and am looking to use BBM on a BlackBerry 9300. When I connect to the wifi, I can only access the Internet browser and not BBM. To correct this I decided to turn Data Services to ON while roaming, while still connected to wifi and I can now use BBM. My question is since I am still connected to wifi, does it still get priority over the 3G now that the data services are on? Basically am I still using the BBM for free as a result of the wifi?

Re: Wifi abroad
If WiFi is connected, data should go that way unless you have an app that forces it to go via the cell network.

Re: Wifi abroad
So if that is the case then there are no charges incurred?

Shouldn't be. You should check with your carrier to be sure however.
