T-Mobile Responds to G1 International Roaming Issue

I’m not sure why I haven’t been following G1 news. Worry no longer! I have come to my senses. Clarification has been made available to you G1-toting jet-setters. T-Mobile recently issued a statement, “If a T-Mobile customer would like to use their T-Mobile G1 while outside the country, they should contact Customer Service Care before they leave to ask that the WorldClass feature be added to their service at no additional charge. If they choose, customers can also disable data roaming on the G1.” It should be noted, however, that some third-party applications available for download can turn data roaming back on, negating the “off” setting. In short – if you don’t want an asinine bill upon your return stateside, you should check each downloaded application to see if, and when, it uses the internet and disable before traveling.
