    I have an iphone through Fido in Canada. I will be in the States for a few days so I installed truphone to allow voip calling. I called Fido to double check that I wouldn't be dinged for data and I was told that if the wi-fi drops off that the 3G may activate even if I have data roaming turned off on the phone. Anyone have any experience with this happening to them? I can't believe that the data would turn itself on if it's turned off. Thanks for any help

    If data roaming is turned off, it won't it won't roam for data. simple as that.

    I figured that, and I was pretty sure the rep was speaking out of her ass, but I didn't want any nasty surprises on my bill. Thanks for the reply.
