    Data charges and roaming

    I know this has been a big issue with always connected phones line the Android series and iPhone... When traveling overseas (or even in Canada, for the US people here) you can get slammed with huge data roaming charges even if you turn off syncing.

    Has there been a good/easy solution for this? My boss will be traveling to Asia and will be bringing his N1 with him. What can he do to maintain some functionality (calls?) without the massive data hit in the background.

    Anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give these a try. Phone calls still work fine, correct?

    Nice combination: APNDroid and NetCounter

    Wah - APNDroid and NetCounter were great suggestions!
    I racked up a $300 bill my first month of using the Nexus thinking I was only getting data though my wireless connections. These apps plugged that leak very nicely.

    The reason I chose this phone was because I traveled overseas to China quite often, and I have an overseas Simcard with China Mobile. I was going to turn on their data service and use my simcard over there. In that case I'm still plugged into data service, and it's quite inexpensive, about $15 dollars for 2gb of data. I read somewhere online that even T-mobile has a soft 1gb data cut off, is that true? Using overseas sim card will allow me to check my voicemail's in the U.S. and make International Calls cheaply with China mobile sim, and cheap data service without incurring roaming charges.
