I can kinda understand the warning for going over your minutes/data alot ment. That could be hard to track, and the carrier should at the very least provide a means for you t\keep track of your usage. But honestly, how dumb do you have to be to not know your in a differeint country?! I mean it's not like you can take a wrong turn on the interstate and end up in France. Boarding the plan, and the 10 something hour flight over the Atlantic didn't give it away? What about everyone speaking french? Here'sa hint, if you are asked to show your passport chances are you are leaving the U.S.
This just seems like the government trying to pass law to protect poeple from their own stupidity. When do consumers take responicibility for their actions? Are they not responcible to read the contracts they sign? Their plan should clearly spell out when they incure extra charages and when. And for soemthing like international roaming where it litterly is as simple as figure out what country your in, is that covered? Then I have no spympathy for people who rack up 12k bills becuase they didn't realise they were in France.
The point is that the stinking charges over there are astro-friggin-nomical and so high as to bankrupt you in no time. $12,000.00 to download one movie on roaming is just a little excessive isn't it Noob? Fair warning that you're in dangerous waters is what this is all about. It's a good idea.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
How about being responsible and going prepaid? I put our whole family onto Net10 to try and avoid month-end heart attacks and we are saving a fortune! With our calls at 10c per minute and out texts 5c each and with NO other expenses at all we will save over $1000.00 this year and if we travelled overseas we would do the same thing. We each have a cell phone allowance per month and it's up to us how to spend it!!
