    I just noticed under Parental Controls, a Smart Limits feature... It was announce Sept 4th and it isn't just for kids. It costs $4.99/month but presumably one could add it on a month-to-month basis, just before an international trip. You use the web to set limits on voice and/or data, so it could be a way around disabling Edge roaming temporarily. You could probably even do it directly from the iPhone...there's a demo but that's in Flash :-(

    Some excerpts:

    "Get peace of mind that you can stay in touch with your children, yet won’t get hit with unexpected charges on your wireless bill."

    "With AT&T Smart Limits for Wireless, you start with an easy online set-up that allows you to determine specifically how and when your child can use the phone. You can set limits on:

    Minutes
    Text and instant messages
    Downloadable purchases (ringtones, games & more)
    Times of day or night the phone can be used
    Who the phone can call or text (or vice versa)
    Internet content access "
