I travelled to India recently. I had mobile data switched off and flight mode selected. When the aircraft landed I took off the flight mode. Immediately I started getting text messages giving me warning that roaming could incur charges. I ignored these messages as I had mobile data turned off and no phone calls were made and none received. Before I had even left the airport I was informed that my smart cap of £10.00 Had been totally depleted.
After I returned to UK, I contacted Plusnet and stated that how is it possible to use roaming mobile data when mobile data is turned off. The answer I received was that I did not inform Plusnet and request Mobile data to be turned off. Is this correct and do other mobile operators have this in there terms and conditions.
