ROAMING WIFI PROBLEM? Please help :(

So my service provider is Rogers, and I'm from Canada. I'm going to the US for the weekend and I wanted to try and use my Wi-Fi. My mobile network is OFF, but my Wi-Fi is connected to my cousins network. With the Wi-Fi, I am able to use BBM and my twitter app. My plan comes with free Wi-Fi by the way.

 

Do I get charged for data? Or.. what? Someone please help! I really don't want to get charged for this.

No.  WiFi works off of internet data allowances, not cellular data allowances.  The fact that you're using your cousin's internet data just sweetens the deal.  Smiley Happy

My data services are set to on, but while roaming, it's off. Does that matter? Cause whenever I turn my data services to off, I am unable to use BBM.

I actually don't have an answer to that one (*slightly embarrassed*).

 

Someone will come along with one, I'm sure.  Smiley Happy

Oh alright. That's completely fine. I'm sure I won't get charged considering the fact that my mobile network is off, and my phone isn't with my service provider when my Wi-Fi is on. Thanks for your reply! It really helped. Smiley Happy

I suppose Rogers Canada supports UMA, which means when mobile network turned off and connected wifi, you might be able to call and text in your included plan while roaming without charges. It is very good as you can talk without being worried about charges and your network knowing that you are in another country.
