Wherever i Roam
The operator has today unveiled plans for discounted international data usage in "67 countries" with a 100 MB iPhone plan available for an additional $119.99 a month, while the 200 MB plan costs an additional $199.99 a month. AT&T customers can apparently add or remove these plans to their existing packages on an as-needed basis.
These plans appear to be another move by AT&T to attract more business users and take business away from rival BlackBerry . The pricing screams business expense rather than family vacation.
It probably doesn't hurt AT&T, however, that the plans could help to discourage the common practice of swapping out your SIM card for a local one when traveling. If you can get online, access email, and message people without fuss then why bother?
