Travelling with your smartphone

We have all been there... you pull out your phone to take a photo of the Mona Lisa, to find directions to Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam, to check yourself in at the Tower of London, or post on FB that the rain in Spain really does stay mainly on the plains.... only to realize that you are not sure how much it is going to cost you. Well worry no more, travelers! This Sunday's edition of The New York Times' Frugal Traveler has an informative article about traveling abroad with your smart phone for everyone from the blissfully disconnected to the addicts. Check out: How to Avoid a Smartphone's Bite. My best advice for AT&T or Verizon customers is to invest in the competitive international plans. It's the easiest and cheaper of the options.
