    Wink 3G Roaming Overseas

    My wife took her Fascinate to overseas to use it as a camera and Wifi Web browser. I temporarily suspended her phone to avoid any roaming charges while she's staying overseas. However, she's saying she is still able to use 3G somehow while the Wifi is turned off. Why is that?

    That's really strange! Personally I would call Verizon and make sure they didn't connect her with overseas roaming abilities instead of suspending it. You don't want to be surprised with a huge bill next month.

    Good call, CR! I wouldn't at all be surprised if Verizon "helped" in this way.

    Tell her to disable it in the settings...then no need to worry about it.

    Setting > Wireless Networks > Mobile Network > Data Roaming should NOT be checked.

    This is very important to do...because just "not using the web" doesnt mean you are not data roaming. Any widget that syncs will add to data roaming. I done learned all this the hard way.

    I called Verizon and I confirmed that her phone is suspended for 3 months as my request. I really don't have any idea how this is possible either.

    On a side note to that. if the phone is roaming for making phone calls (lets say your out of state), are roaming data charges applied as well?
