I agree that overseas roaming plans are obscenely expensive, but this isn't at&t''s fault, the roaming rates are set by terms of an agreement which at&t makes with the international carriers. at&t can't just charge whatever they want because it isn't their network that is being used when customers are roaming overseas. For overseas roaming I always use an unlocked GSM phone and buy a pre-paid SIM card in my country of destination, that's always cheaper than any international roaming plan.
That is exactly what I was referring to. Unlocked GSM with prepaid SIM from the destination country. Lots of them get free incoming calls.
I know its not AT&T's fault. Its the destination countries rate agreed by both parties involved.
