so this summer im going to be doing a study abroad program in the Mediterranean area (visiting 8 different country with Semester at Sea), the program says that they provide us with limited email (text ONLY) and phone service available at $3.95 a min. clearly as a computer geek 2 months like that would be grueling. is there any way to keep connected to the web, and still use my iPhone regularly while over there? thanks!

Contact AT&T and tell them that you are going to Europe and want an international plan for the specific time periods. It will definitely cost you more, but not as outrageous as other options.

I am in the US Navy and travel all over. I specifically asked this question when setting up my plan last October.

Leave your iPhone and PC at home and enjoy your summer. Who knows .. you might find that real life is better than the Internet.
