    depends where you're roaming. international yes. I know they have a roaming agreement with TMO not sure about other carriers though so if roaming on TMO you're fine

    Question Question. OK so im going to be in Thailand starting in 3 days. I am with tmobile and data and cell does work over there. What i would like to know is, if the international email also count to internet for your phone. Cause i have the unlimited data BIS for tmo and just added the international thing for just this month.

    one thing to beware of. when you go internationally, and you turn your phone on, once it connects to a tower and you have incoming emails, text, mms etc, you will get charged just for having the phone on and not using it. the reason I know this is I just went to Mexico in June and I had charges and they said thats what it was from. Watch out.

    I travel quite a lot, and usually your phone and sms are charged at a higher than normal rate, also your data will be charged at a very high rate !! even though you have a data plan!

    You may be able to get a special deal from your carrier for travelling, or get a local sim when you get there.
