I personally have heard many stories of people taking their iPhone, iPad, or other smartphone or tablet on trips abroad to come home to find huge wireless bills waiting for them. The latest story I heard was from a friend of my wife’s who spent over $500 on her wireless bill from her last trip to Jamaica! Yes, she is now a proud owner of The Cheapskate’s Guide to Traveling With Your iPhone and will be saving big money on her upcoming trip.
But I’d like to hear from all of you. Simply comment below to share your horror story of a trip where you took your mobile device and got nailed by international roaming charges. Let us know where you traveled, who your wireless carrier was, what type of device you took along, and what your total bill came to be.
