Roam, if you want to, the B-52s sang, roam around the world. Just don’t try and buy anything on your cell phone while roaming. It will cost you.
While traveling abroad in South Africa, a woman named Katie Bryan attempted to download a Neil Diamond album to her phone. Let’s call it traveling music. She didn’t take into consideration the roaming bandwidth and the charges she might incur.
A month later Bryan get her cell phone bill and CRACKLIN ROSIE IT WAS $4,300!
The download, which took up to 20 minutes, used 326 MB of data, charged at ?8 per megabyte once her 10MB monthly foreign allowance had been used up.
Forever in blue jeans or forever paying off her cell phone bill? She called her cell phone provider who agreed to knock down the bill to ?400 ($669 dollars) and she promised not to download any more Neil Diamond music while traveling the world.
That’s good, cause she’s coming to America…TODAY!
She’s not, but I need to fit that in somewhere.
