Roaming data

When overseas, if my mobile phone is switched to flight mode but data plan is on, will I be charged for roaming charges? 

 

Need to know as I cannot seem to switch off my data.

Hey @Cherrypie,

 

As long as your are on airplane mode, you aren't connected to any network and therefore no usage would occur. 

 

Rest assured, roaming is only billed when an outgoing usage is validated through your Fido SIM card, such as texting, using data, answering/placing a call, retrieving your voice messages.
