    I just found out the hard way that only disabling Roaming Data, was not enough. You need to disable MMS & Data as well. You will still be able to use WiFi as I was.

    Hope that helps.

    I turned off data and roaming the whole time. Just stick to texts (if you need to) and use Wifi for emails. You can get a data plan for travelling, but it's still a giant ripoff.

    I unlocked my phone and bought a Sim for 15E then another 12E bought me 500MB of data. That came in handy and is a good idea if you are only in one country - but once I crosed the border, I was back on travellers rates. The good thing is once my 12E ran out, even on travellors rates, they can't charge any more since it was prepaid.

    On this subject - I'm about to go overseas (see below) and have been concerned about data costs. I have got a UK prepaid SIM, so it's not too bad, but I have also noticed that there are significant "data leaks" with APNdroid in 2.1.
    I could stop all data using APNdroid in 1.6, but it doesn't seem to work as well in 2.1 - I have "leaked" about 2MB this morning alone - and while we're not quite on Mexico prices, SA mobile data is still pricey.

    Anyone had this problem? Anyone got a solution?
