Tips

  • Many cell service providers offer inexpensive data plans for when you are on vacation or on a business trip in a different country.
  • Many countries, especially European countries, have WiFi available everywhere - malls, town centers, hotels, buses, etc. You may not need to ever set your phone to roaming when you are away. Even if you do set it to Roaming, turn it off when you don't need it, and connect to WiFi when it's available, to save yourself a big bill at the end of your trip.
