Got this from someone today:

If any of you are headed overseas armed with your new iphones, watch out. If you let it download data it can really cost you. After a 36 hour trip to London they suspended my service when it hit $3,500 for data charges. Since then I’ve retroactively added their best data plan and am still looking at a $600 plus bill. Even so, the plan allows for a measly 50mb per month (I burned 120mb and don’t even remember looking at much besides the NYT) and is only good in certain countries.

Anybody know a consumer protection beat writer?

Gulp. Any other similar experiences out there?
