Got hit with data roaming charges while in Canada. Before I went to Canada recently, on our two GNex phones, I selected the option to disable data roaming. (Unchecked allow data roaming). When in Canada, SMS text messaging is included in my plans and I pay a per minute fee to talk, I use wifi for data. I understand that MMS won't work when data roaming is disabled. While in Canada, the data symbol never showed up unless I was on wifi, the voice signal bars were never blue, they kept grey, which indicated I didn't have a data connection to the Google servers. So, why did I get hit with data roaming charges on both phones? On the previous version of the Android software (4.0 possibly) on these phones, configured them the same way, didn't get any roaming charges. Now its its on version 4.1 (ish), I get hit with charges. Is this a new bug with this version of the OS software?
