How can I get the Blackberry Pearl 9100 to use free wifi but no other internet when going abroad?

I want to use wifi in wifi spots, but I don't want to be charged for internet usage on my bill, when I am going abroad ?

My Curve 8520 has an option under Mobile Network to be off while roaming. That'll disable 3g when abroad but leave wifi untouched.

Not sure because: do you still want to receive email? You could delete the internet access point (APN) in 'settings'. Here in Ireland you can ask your network provider to disable webaccess. Maybe you give customer care a call?

oops. I missed the abroad bit. Mrew42's solution obviously applies in your case. Next: coffee before posting. Before!

Coffee is gooooooooddddddddd. (Whether that reads as "good" or "god" is your decision.

I think I need to disable the 3G then. Will figure that out.
