    Have owned an iphone for a coule of months now and have made sure that I switch off data roaming function before going abroad and switch back on when returning.
    Nontheless have incurred horrendous data downloading charges for dowloading email in free wifi environment abroad.

    Can anyone please help and explain what I might be doing wrong, or perhaps it is a problem with the iphone?

    What you did should have been fine, as long as you were using free wifi. You should contact AT&T for an explanation.

    Did you have fetch or push on?

    Thanks for the reply. I was prompted for push, yes, is that the reason for the charges?
