Always A Catch...
This sounds like a great program. I use Verizon and their "International Data Plan" is quite expensive so i use wifi unless i can get the usage expensed. Wifi is certainly available but it really is quite slow and unreliable in Europe which is surprising and disappointing. Thankfully the speeds are getting a little better as time goes on but it is not usable for business purposes. Too bad this program is restricted to those two phones in the article.
