In case you missed it from Crunch Gear, make sure you don’t do any data roaming internationally on the ATP. Unless, of course, you are made of money.
>I’m not a vindictive man. I believe in sweetness and light. But I would encourage anyone with a brain who travels, especially in these trying economic times, to buy an unlocked GSM phone and purchase pay as you go SIM cards or a MaxRoam SIM and a Rebel SIMCard for the iPhone 3G. I also encourage you to use Boingo for Wi-Fi roaming in airports and, increasingly, cities. Why? Because I just paid the equivalent to a flight to Paris and back just because I wanted to use Google Maps on the iPhone 3G to find my way around gay Paree.
Don’t let that happen to you if you travel outside the US.
Personally I can’t wait to find out how much Verizon Wireless will
ream charge me for using a VZ sim outside the US. Scary stuff indeed.
