Traveling this holiday season? Avoid mobile bill shock.

Posted on | December 15, 2011 | No Comments

Cell Phone Bill ShockThis fall, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reached an agreement that mobile providers would have to send alerts to cell phones users who are nearing their monthly limits for voice, text or data services. The decision was made in an effort to prevent overage charges and outrageous cases of “bill shock,” like the story of one man receiving a $140,000 mobile bill.

However, most carriers have up to two years before the alerts must be implemented. If you are traveling this holiday season, we have some tips to prevent unwanted mobile charges before they occur. These helpful  hints are especially useful for international travelers who have to deal with roaming along with tracking data usage.

Happy holidays, and safe travels from K&R Network Solutions!
