Disable international day pass

Answered

I was about to disable international day pass, but got a strange warning message from the ios app. It said "if you used international roaming today (AEST) you'll be charged pay-as-you-go rates for that usage". I'm confused. The whole point of me getting IDP was to avoid paying normal roaming rates. Do I have to wait an extra day with IDP on in order to achieve that? Does it mean I'll have to pay IDP fee for 2 days despite using it only for one day?

It means that if you disable it then any usage on the day that you disable it is charged at Standard International Roaming Rates and you don't get charged the International Day Pass fee. It backdates the cancellation to the start of the day (in AEST timezone).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Oh, so I can turn it off a day later and I'll be charged for IDP for one day only. I see, thanks!

CAUTION. Important fact about international day pass.

Please be aware that if international day pass is enabled, it will be activated by using your phone.
You will use your phone by something as simple as having mobile data off and then turning your phone off then on. This will use a tiny amount of data.
