Re: [NTLK] [OT] Huge int'l roaming fees for iPhone (was Re: Test...)

Not quite...this is (l)user error for the most part. Here's why...

1) Int'l roaming is always a bastard for voice regardless.
2) You can turn automatic email checking OFF, and wait to check your
mail in a WiFi-enable location, where it would be free.

Also, to pick a small nit, it checks mail when sleeping, not when
powered down (which would be impossible).

Someone should have RTFM and RTFSP (Read The Fine Small Print™), or
even just called AT&T customer support and (ya know...) *asked* rather
than just assuming that there would be no price differential once
outside the *country* in which they had service.

About the only fault I'd assign Apple in all this is the SIM-lock, but
there are now 3rd party software-only solutions for that as well...
