Right, got myself sorted with roaming overseas but want to make sure my phone is not connecting and downloading data at $30 a meg, Vodafones roaming cost for data.   (At a buck for 10mb here doesn't $300 for 10mb seem a bit exorbitant).   Does anyone know of a good app that lets me turn off any data connection while leaving phone calls and txt going,  rather than going through the process of turning off all email checking and other apps that I have working when I'm here at home.  Or am I getting my wires crossed again?

NT.

What sort of phone do you have?  It may be possible in the settings that you have to disable the data usage.  If you're using active sync + windows mobile (highly recommended) then you can set data usage to "manual" (or rely on the "off whilst roaming options")

Apparently Blackberrys have a optin built in to turn off the mobile data ...

I am not running the shipped rom but in the comms manager you should be able to click on turn off 3g and data connection. That will definitely keep them off until you click both of them back on.

Not standard rom here either but haven't got the option of turning off 3G or data.  But then again I seem to recall a piece of software I looked at recently let me add some buttons to the com manager.  Some sort of config prog.  I'll have to go have a look now...lol.
