iPhone + international travel

I brought my iPhone to Portugal last week and purchased basic data/sms plans for the trip. This turned out to be way cheaper than I expected. I bought 120mb data for $30 and 50 text messages for $10. I used 72mb of data and 1/50 text messages (it didn’t occur to me that my wife and I are both on iOS so our messages are sent via data).

Here are a few of my observations:

I almost didn’t even look into this before the trip because I assumed it would cost too much. Now, I can’t imagine not doing this for future excursions overseas.
