qustion for 9700: how can I use voice and messaging without data?

[ Edited ]


I bought a blackberry 9700, and I put the chinese number in it, so I don't want to use data in America, it's too expensive. After I turn off the data services and while roaming, then turn on the mobile network, it still shows edge or 3g beside the signal. So how can I just use voice and messageing without data? I also turn off the wifi.

Thank you!

You must turn on the Data Services to use data on WiFi on the 9700 model on OS5


What is this chinese number you put in it? What do you mean?
