International roaming is a rip-off on most carriers

If you have a roaming capable phone, it is much less expensive to have your phone unlocked and use a local carriers SIM card and service.

T-Mobile is the only US carrier who has this right-- they offer prices competitive to local carriers for roaming and calling home, and even throw in data (albeit 2G).

the only problem with using a local carriers sim is that your device would have to be unlocked and most people are within contract on that phone, so they dont have that option

T-Mobile can offer lower prices on international roaming only because they ARE an international carrier to begin with, and thus when overseas the phone is actually on a network owned by the same company, from T-Mobile to another Deutsche Telecom carrier overseas is not really 'roaming'.

T-Mobile cell phone unlock policy is the phone:
If financed has to have at least 2 payments made on the device and on an active line of service for 40 days. If device was purchased the only thing that is a requirement is the 40 days on an active line.
