I had a simular problem (UPS is expensive in germany, so I only wanted our local rates)
I ended up using the ui to delete ALL shipping methods, then I added a new 
method: in-Germany (for order in germany I use Deutsche post)
Then I edited it's data table (formula) info, and manually added the rates (I based mine on price 0-20=$xx  21-50=$xx ).

IMPORTANT: when you test order make sure you are using a new customer ID/Pass
if you use an old one, it tries to use the stored shipping method (that you just deleted).
better yet would be to delete all customer id's when you make major changes and don't use the cookie function while testing.
