Receiving Messages While Traveling - Charges??

Fairly new BlackBerry owner here.  I have had the device for about a month but have not traveled with it yet.  In October I will be traveling outside of the network.  While I am outside of the network I want to prevent being charged for anything that would cause additional charges to appear on my account.  If I have my device ON in the event I get any phone calls, will I get charged for e-mail messages/texts/etc. that are pushed to my phone?  if so, what preventative steps can I take to avoid this?


Thanks in advance.

Re: Receiving Messages While Traveling - Charges??

What I do when I travel internationally and all I want is phone call capability I turn the DATA off.


MANAGE CONNECTIONS-> Mobile Network Options ->Data Services -> OFF  (or OFF when roaming also)



Disclaimer-------> This has been working for me, not sure if this is the proper way of doing it.
