Will I get charged by verizon for using free wireless in a foreign country

Hello, Sorry if this question has been asked before.

I am in a foreign location right now. DO not have any international plans with Verizon (just domestic USA phone minutes, and internet).

 

I notice that my droid-2 picks up the free wireless in the hotel and connects to internet with full functionality.

Will Verizon charge me for this, even though I am using free wireless?

I could not seem to find this answer on verizon's FAQ's.

 

 

DOnt want a giant internet access bill for simply using hte phone as a device to check email!!!

If you are talking about WiFi wireless, no. If you are talking about 3G / "Data" wireless, yes, very much so.

Since you mention "hotel wireless" I assume you're talking about WiFi so you should be fine. If you are in most of Europe, you're probably fine as there is very little support for CDMA in Europe. Asia is a different story, that does support CDMA in many locations, so you could be data roaming.
