ect: FW: international roaming charges -- Detroit convention

> Subject: international roaming
> For those of you travelling to convention, you'll notice that just a 
> couple hundred yards across the Detroit River is Canada, our neighbor 
> to the north (or in this unusual case, our neighbor to the south).  
> Though you will need a passport to cross the border, your cell phone 
> doesn't.  Depending where you are in the hotel, your cell phone (or 
> data card) may give up on a weak signal from your carrier
> and switch to the Rogers Communications cell signal from Canada.   
> This constitutes international roaming and can be very expensive.   
> Unless you have a contract that includes it, you might consider 
> contacting your provider to disable international roaming, if only for 
> the first couple of weeks of July.  I found AT&T to be very helpful in 
> providing assistance with my request.  To make it a bit easier for 
> those interested, here are contact numbers for the various carriers:
> AT&T : 611 or 800-331-0500
> Sprint : *2, press Talk or 888-211-4727 T-Mobile : 800-937-8997 
> Verizon : *611 or 800-922-0204 Virgin Mobile : 888-322-1122
> Here's to no cell phone bill suprises, eh?  If you supervise anyone 
> without e-mail, please advise any of those attending convention.
> Regards,
> John
