So let me just ask this question....
I am a BBM user and have a Data plan... I do use my BBM over WiFi also since I don't get signal in parts of my office and it works great....
The question I have is when I travel down to the US for work and don't want to get killed on Data Roaming charges can I turn off my Network and still use the Wifi at the hotel for email, BBM and Internet? Or will it require my network to be on and be roaming that way my carrier can charge me for using the services?

As long as your data plan is still active, you can use email, BBM, and internet over WiFi without incurring roaming charges.
It's advisable to select "Data off when Roaming" and to turn of the Mobile Network.

Could someone help me. I'm offshore and we have wifi working on board. I have a data plan in my home country, south africa for bb. My questions is, if I use bbm over the wifi while my data plan is turned on, but data while roaming is turned off. Do I still get charge with any roaming cost in this case?? If I use wifi bbm will I still be getting a bill for international roaming for the data sent? Hope somebody can tell me because not even my carrier at home knows the answer to this... Frustrating...
