    That's fairly straightforward:

    Settings -> Wireless controls -> Mobile network settings -> Untick 'Data roaming' if you don't wish to use it.

    Voila!

    ok i know about that, but i was getting the feeling from what i read online that it doesnt stop everything, somethings still operate in bckground and read about peopel coming home with 75quid a day bills! so just wanna make sure :)

    thanks

    It's on both phones :
    On a home screen with a 1x1 free space - press the [+] "key" - chose Widget, Settings, Mobile

    (I have a Norwegian 2.1 Hero, so I do not know it that is the exact "names"...)

    Well I travel abroad quite a lot and I've never had any problems with unwanted data roaming. Stay cool :cool:
