Leave laptop behind and only use iPhone?

Jump to last reply

Has anybody relied only on an iPhone to browse web, send & receive email, and text message while in Europe?

I have always taken my laptop but now that I have the iphone it seems almost irresistible to jettison the laptop. For $30 I can get 200 int'l text messages. For $25 I can get an int'l data plan that should be enough for email and internet for a week. Do not plan to make or receive any phone calls. Does this sound reasonable? Do not want any surprise sky high bill upon return home.

After endlessly scrutinizing the AT&T website I still can't figure out these two things:
If the iphone's roaming is set to OFF can I still use internet if I am in a free wi fi hot spot?
Do text messages pop up when roaming is turned to OFF?

Any insights appreciated.
