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.
Solved! Go to Solution.

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.

I actually don't have an answer to that one (*slightly embarrassed*).
Someone will come along with one, I'm sure.

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.
