  • Using your iPhone overseas and avoiding massive data charges

    Many of our members travel overseas and many (probably even more!) of our members have an iPhone. So the obvious question is how to safely use your iPhone while overseas and avoid excessive data charges.

    And yes, there are some horror stories. Quoting just a few members:
    After a $900 phone bill from optus I learnt my lesson
    I recently returned from a trip to New York to a $1600 data a bill
    by the time we got home the bill had amounted to $6,200
    I am also one of the unlucky people who came home to a hefty bill for $6,200
    One solution is to leave your iPhone at home. But then you would miss out as the iPhone (over free WiFi) can be a great help in your travels.

    Unbelievably, there is no master "data off" switch, so if you decide to take your phone and you wish to avoid excessive data charges, you need to be proactive. Our memberís discus various strategies including:
    • Replace your regular SIM with a local SIM
    • Turn off 3G
    • Turn off Data Roaming
    • Avoid using Calendar and "push" mail
    • Get your carrier to block all data at their end
    • Turn your iPhone into an iPod by setting it to Airplane Mode and then turning WiFi back on
    Each of these strategies have their own advantages (and disadvantages), so its best to read the full discussion HERE.

    Spotted these beauties (as I was coming out of the Airshow on Monday morning). These were heading back to the big hangers for dismantling prior to their return to NZ.

    General Qantas Delays/Cancellations/etc. Discussion

    With respect JB,

    The only reason that there were 380 crews in HKG was because QF deliberately replaced the 747 service with a 380 service for end CNY.

    They also deliberately replaced the 380...

    I was assuming they'd mail that out?

    Well it was a fun social session if nothing else.
    Hopefully Qantas found it useful.
