    I have been wondering for some time why more people do not complain about AT&T's international data plans. I know you can travel abroad and switch out your sim card to a local network. AT&T also knows that. However, AT&T still limits its international data plans to 200MB of data a month. In one hour you could go over that multiple times if you knew what you were doing. Why does AT&T charged an additional 200 dollars a month to give you 200MB abroad per month? Where does that number come from? How can the data charge for one month equal the price of a new phone? Why does everyone put up with such an awful deal? Is it because more business people use blackberry's? I think more people need to complain to AT&T about this. You can buy a new I4 16 gig for 200!


    $199.99/month: 200 MB Data Global Add-On gives you 200 MB of usage within more than 90 countries

    They are likely just sticking it too large business that HAVE to have people with international data - i.e. their CEO in London must check his email on the road.

    If you are really going to spend that much time international, why not just get another phone or a sim? I don't think their international rates are that far off from every other provider anyway.

    Maybe every other summer I spend a month in Europe

    I am not going to buy a phone with an international sim card (outside US) just to use once every two years. However, it would be nice to take the phone abroad when I do, and it would be easier just to pay AT&T than to get a different sim card. That being said, I would never pay $200 for 200MB...a dollar per megabyte??? Ill just get a different sim card when I have to. Really just wondering why is has to be that way.
