    If you will have access to a wi-fi network most of the time you are there, you can use it to make your connection and make calls back here to the states along with accessing data and not get charged roaming charges. You can disable the cellular side and use the wi-fi connection exclusively.

    What if you use the WiFi for when you are in hotspots?

    I intend to get a voice & data service as soon as I get there. My major concern is that those Australian providers aren’t giving unlimited BB data service. I just want to find cost effective solution for my addiction.

    The most cost effective is to use (as crazy as it sounds) the unlimited data plan from T-Mobile through a wi-fi connection since the Australian providers do not have an unlimited plan of thier own. You can use a basic cell phone for voice there (if you want and need a local number) and just change your plan to a data only service here (which is still useable over wi-fi on an 8320). Once you get back to the states you can change your plan back to a voice and data plan. This way you also keep the same number while you are gone so you won't have to give it back out to everyone when you get back.

    He is going there fora year, so i dont really know what you can do. Best thing is to sell crack on the side to feed your own crackberry data addiction!
    I really have nothing to be honest, i think you might have to get the best possible plan, just cut down on the usage! i survive with about 300 mbs a month!
