Data Usage

Using data on vacation

Most people don't realize it, but our travel habits have changed a lot in the past few years - at least when it comes to our phones.

We hear from a lot of families who thought they'd be able to travel without texting, tweeting, Instagramming, and Facebooking while abroad, but are shocked to see what an international roaming bill looks like when they get back home.

Smartphones are great for streaming media, browsing the web, updating your Facebook status and doing Skype video calls with friends and family back home, but remember the latest devices tend to be very data hungry.
