when i went to the states on vacation, before i left, i called my service provider (bell) to see how i could avoid roaming charges. they switched my plan to one that doesn't incur the charges and i was fine. i think it cost me $30, on top of the cost of my regular plan. the only catch was that i had to maintain this plan for a certain time (i think it was one month).

I went to WMC 3 years ago.

Got a $700 bill when I got back.

Every time we switched "provider areas" I was charged $15.

There's a lot of "provider areas" around there.

Call and bitch and bitch and bitch and they may be able to half it at least.

That's what they did for me.

$456.80!

But I did use it a lot tho...calling people that were already in Miami...not smart...next year it's all about texting.

When I got married in Vegas last year, I called before going and they switched me to a new plan for one month that gave me 300 minutes of free calling in the U.S. with no roaming charges. I suggest doing the same anytime you go away.It cost me $15 more for the plan for the one month.

Last year it was all about txt'ing and it worked fine.

But that's cuz I'm poh and can't risk getting such crazy phone bills.

I will know the full extent of the damages tomorrow. I must admit, seeing some of the costs posted here makes me feel much better about what I likely spent. You people are loco!

Nonetheless, as hard as I try to control my use, there is just something about being drunk in the middle of the day that turns me into a texting and long distance calling fiend. I should apply for a government grant to study this phenomenon.

Mine is about $300. Met up with some friends in Miami and both had Blackberrys to pin eachother and didn't cost me a thing. But made calls to Toronto, so I can have Rogers steal money from me and pay A.J Burnett his salary.
