If you want to avoid all roaming data charges whilst you are on holiday, you need to turn data roaming OFF which will disable all Blackberry services and you will not get any emails pushed to your phone.
There are a few ways you can still use data without incurrring any charges, WiFi is often available free and offered in hotels and cafes and you will still be able to use Blackberry and surf the internet.
For a charge, you will be able to use Vodafone Data Traveller. You will be able to find all the information for Vodafone Data Traveller, Vodafone Passport and any further information for Going Abroad from the website.
