Watch Out for Roaming Charges

        The article about unexpected charges to smartphone users caught my attention.  An email to Jim Hamm gives us his take on this potential problem.  "Years ago when we first got a cell phone and had to be aware of possible roaming charges while traveling in the US. Now we are on AT&T and roaming may be a thing of the past -- at least for us. If AT&T doesn't have a signal in a particular area, then we just don't get service and can't make a call. I'm not sure what the situation may be for Verizon."  See the article here
