My $837.20 iPhone bill and how to avoid it

As I was preparing for another trip to London in late May, I decided to take along my iPhone this time instead of using a UK SIM card in my old Sony Ericsson phone. I called AT&T the day before my trip and activated the AT&T World Traveler dialing plan for $5.99 for cheaper voice [...]
