how to turn off internet, email & other date services abroad

My unlimited internet access is only free inside of this country (France), how to disable internet, email and other data services when I go abroad, (my Iphone had a "Data Roaming" switch to avoid substantial charges when using email, web browsing and other data services abroad), I can't find this application on my Blackberry,

Thanks

Go into Manage Connections and uncheck the Mobile Network box, and others in there as you see fit.

In addition to what Boomer stated, in the Manage Connections > Mobile Network Options > Data Services you can set "While Roaming" to OFF.
