Smartphone Could Cost You When Traveling Abroad

BOSTON (CBS) – That smartphone you have could cost you big time if you travel outside the country.

The problem is roaming charges.

Paula Fleming of the Better Business Bureau says one thing you can do is shut off your phone.

If you need to keep in touch, she says to contact your provider and ask them what charges you can expect.

Fleming says one man who recently vacationed in Jamaica was shocked to see roaming charges of $1,200 dollars when he got home.
