    Yes it should. Also you might want to get a local prepaid SIM card, I've heard that saves big money.

    more correctly, when your wifi icon is white it means that you're connected to the bis server via wifi and that data services (not sms or mms of course) are all going through the wifi.

    What tspderek said is correct, if you go to
    1)wi fi options
    2) menu key on the wi fi connect in question i.e home
    3) select wi fi tool
    4)wi fi diagnostics
    5)if you scroll all the way down you will see blackberry infastructure (BIS server)

    it will say authenticated if the wi fi icon is fully white.

    So yes even your using your own wi fi / any other wi fi your data (data only) is still routed through to RIM's bis servers...
