AT&T's Europe Travel plan lets you get 30, 80 and 200 minutes at $30, $60 or $120 per month, respectively, and each additional minute will be a buck. Canada and Mexico visitors have it the easiest with 80, 100 and 200 minutes for the same monthly charges...

This is a disgusting price to pay just so you can keep your phone number while going overseas. I'm much more of a data user so a pay-as-you-go SIM is much easier on the wallet when going overseas. However I imagine that these plans are also somewhat predatory on people who don't bother to consider that prepaid SIMs are even an option over there.

$60 for 600 messages? That's horrible. AT&T just gouging the traveler and taking advantage.

Though I will say it's cheaper than what Verizon was charging.. 50 cents to send messages.. OUCH.

They would probably love to go back to the days of charging for long distance calls..

I don't see data plan rates in this article.. what are those?

Ok, I realize that you all may think AT&T is gouging customers, and you could be correct. However, many of you are talking about unlocking your phone and using a service over there. Well, of course it is cheaper using native countries' cell service...D'UH!!!!!
How about we compare ROAMING prices with other U.S. carriers and then everyone using the correct comparison would make more sense when complaining.
