Turn Off iPad Data Roaming to Avoid High International Charges
Staying in touch via voice, email or online is important while travelling abroad for your department. With advance planning, high phone and data charges can be avoided on departmental cell phones and your laptop's wireless access card (air card) during international travel (see International Travel and Cellular Services).
What about using your iPad or other tablet device outside of the U.S.? International data plans can be purchased, but hefty roaming charges still apply. To lessen overages, turn off data services and use Wi-Fi only.
Enabling or Disabling Data Roaming on the iPad 2
