If you are a professional and you are not only using your iPhone to keep in touch with friends and family, in many cases your iPhone is your connection to the business world. Whether you're browsing your inventory, checking your email, or setting up conference calls on your way to a business meeting, your iPhone is literally the key to staying connected to your business life. However, if you are like most business owners, you will travel the world keeping your business running and profitable. People with cell phones worry about using their phone in another country, especially if you are visiting for a long time.

Can you use your iPhone abroad

Like most mobile phones, the iPhone works with a specific carrier. In this case, you have your service through AT&T / Cingular. Many entrepreneurs want to make sure their cell service is not interrupted simply by traveling from one country to another. Since the iPhone is serviced by AT&T / Cingular, you don't have to worry about loss of service or functionality as the iPhone uses the GSM system. GSM is an abbreviation for Global System for Mobile Communication and allows you to use your mobile phone in many countries. In fact, more than 100 countries around the world use GSM, so you can continue to use your iPhone without affecting cellular service.

Many business travelers travel to Europe and Asia. Since your iPhone uses GSM, it can provide excellent service in any location. However, there are some precautions you should take before leaving the country with your iPhone. If you've ever traveled the world and used your cell phone, you've probably been surprised by the extremely high charges for phone and data.

In fact, your number is an American phone number. Therefore, any call you make in another country will be treated as an international call by your mobile operator. If you've been abroad for a long time and can easily raise hundreds of dollars in roaming and roaming fees,

You want to change your calling plan if you travel abroad frequently.

AT&T / Cingular offers great and affordable rates for international calls. So you can travel the world without worrying about roaming fees and international calls. If you are using data on your iPhone, which most of you do, make sure you have an international data plan as well. The worst return surprise you can have is opening your cell phone bill to find hundreds of dollars in additional fees and charges. However, if you plan ahead and make sure you get a new service plan that includes international cell phone use, you don't have to worry about extremely high fees.
