Guess they tired of screwing customers maybe.. but still they can shove it. I use the local networks, whenever I go to a country I get a prepaid SIM and use that.

Why even bother with a local SIM because they will charge you if you dial international. Wi-fi is killing roaming.

Do you know its cheaper to dial international in other countries?
Let's see.. I have about USD 30 spread across several SIMs from several countries. I get by with all of them, phoning my wife and son back home.

This is a good step towards reducing roaming costs.

If you're hopping countries it's inconvenient and often not possible to get a local simcard. And it's useful to be reachable by everybody on the same number any time of day or night.

Wifi is not available everywhere or at reasonable costs.

I am assuming that this doesn't overide any cheaper data roaming option that exists.

International roaming is a pricey exercise this product is a good product but tourists (so non business use) really should be looking at the various "free" ways to do things.
