Unless data is turned off, you are using it all the time even without 'being on the net.' Some Thai SIM's are time based and some are quantity based. If your package includes 15 hours of connectivity, guess what, it is gone in a day!

If you are using a time-based SIM, then not only do you want all data off when you are not using it but you should also log off the network. Data roaming refers to using another network which your Thai SIM will probably not allow. Usually turning off data does not apply to wifi connections.

thailand does not have 3g networks so sometimes the default settings on a non asian phone can have you online for a long time the best thing to do is go to a phone shop the one in carrfour is excellent they will set your phone up correctly for which network and phone model you are using in thailand and probably recommed best type of sim/deal . Consider a twin sim adapter not dear,

Bonus very cute girls!
