    I am in Afghanistan and have my BB here with me. I have activated the SIM and all and have changed my data plan to the $65/month data/email plan along with the $4.99 Global plan to reduce the per minute voice charge to $2.29/minute vice $2.99/minute. The question I have is that I am in Bagram and will be heading to Herat and other areas. According to the coverage map, I am in the area covered for Verizon/Vodafone. When I disable the data roaming, I dont receive email and such...I dont want to enable the data roaming because of incurring charges. I already have $100 in extra roaming charges that I thought wouldnt be there due to my selecting the data/email package I did. Is there a reason why I am being charged roaming for being in an area that doesnt look like it should be roaming? Do I need to manually connect to another network vice auto selecting the TDMA network? Thanks in advance for the help and cost savings!

    You either have global data on your plan or not, there aren't any areas that will be billed roaming when you have it.
