iPhone users rack up $4800 bill while their phones are turned OFF.

There's something just plain wrong about this in my eyes. Yet another reason NOT to buy one, I guess.

from /.:

Jay Levy says he has been stung by Apple's iPhone pact with AT&T after he took an iPhone on a Mediterranean cruise. They didn't use their phones, but when they got back they had a 54-page monthly bill of nearly $4,800 from AT&T Wireless. The problem was that their three iPhones were racking up a bill for data charges using foreign phone charges. The iPhone regularly updates e-mail, even while it's off, so that all the messages will be available when the user turns it on.

If the phone is off how does it update? I don't see how the charges will stand up. was this feature listed? and even if it was, could the feature be turned off so as not to get these charges?

So this basically tells me, you can't take your Iphone with you on an international vacation unless you want to pay the bill for those auto updates..
