GPS app -- roaming charges?

Jump to last reply

So.....I stopped by the Verizon store last night to activate my iPhone to work internationally.

Verizon informed me that beyond the USD25.00 fee for 100MB of data and 50 cents per text, I will also pay roaming charges that are quite 'expensive' depending on the country I am visiting (UK, France).

I downloaded the Mapquest app onto my iPhone to use as my GPS when driving from Paris to Bayeux to Amboise to Lyon to St. Remy to Nice. Not knowing how common free wifi is throughout the UK and France, has anyone used this app while traveling in these countries? And, were the roaming charges outrageously expensive?

I'm planning on turning off my email accounts unless I am in a free wifi area, so that should cut down on my data usage, but I am more concerned about potential roaming charges while using the GPS app.

I also downloaded the Fodors London and Fodors Paris apps to use while in these two cities, but again...now I'm concerned about how expensive those roaming charges might be.

Your thoughts and comments on previous experience regarding this is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Judy
