Someone told me this morning that they read about someone traveling to Europe and coming back to find $1000's on their iPhone bill because the automatic email checker was racking up charges every half hour. This doesn't seem right to me because isn't the data all free on the iPhone? Or is it different if you travel out of the U.S.?

Yeah I heard the same thing. Let it be fair warning to people to take out their sim cards when leaving the country just to be sure. There should be some sort of warning feature so that doesn't happen.

After traveling to Russia in August I came back to find $750 bill for my iPhone. My email checking was on and I also did some browsing, weather and stock updates.
AT&T gave me $100 credit when I called them about this.
They now have international data packages available for iPhone users that you can purchase before traveling abroad trough theit web site. I remember seeing it after I talked to AT&T rep. I don't remember the link, try searching AT&T site.
