    you need data to use bbm so if you turn off your data, you won't be able to use bbm

    Well.... I think this is sort of a "half truth".

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it would be possible to use Wi-Fi and through this use BBM, yes?

    You can use BBM over WiFi, I just tested it by turning off the cell radio and only connecting to WiFi, and it does work and its very fast. This is on a BB with UMA, (8900), so I'm not sure if this will work on your 9000.

    Branden is describing the wonder of UMA.

    T-Mobile allows it's subscribers to use Wifi from anywhere in the World for plan access.

    Rogers, on the other hand, screens out international IP address....

    shucks!

    i was in the impression to "turn off" receiving personal emails as roaming charges may be expensive
