    Hi all,

    I live in the UK but travel to Japan a few times a year on business.

    I am new to Blackberry and its features. I have BBM'ed friends and business people etc over here no problem. I am on unlimited data and was wondering that when I am in Japan are BBM's still free? Will they be free to people back in the UK and will they also be free to people I am away with in Japan?

    Thanks in advance

    You'll probably pay for data roaming, those costs can go up VERY fast... If you can get onto a wifi connection/hotspot you won't pay anything extra, unless you're on a paid hotspot of course. The fact that you're outside your home country won't costs the people in the UK anything, anyone you decide to BBM will get those messages for free.

    ETA: some carriers offer an international data plan, should you have one of those, it'll be free as well. I think the best thing to do is check with your carrier what their fees are for data roaming
