Isn't corporate greed just fascinating...
When AT&T was known as Cingular in NYC, i had the pleasure of not having such an umbrella plan to cover my voice minutes while I was overseas. On top of that, when I roamed in India, I paid a measly 60 cents per minute on the local Vodafone (which was known as Hutch) at that time.
It just boggles me how anything release by AT&T is a "deal" these days. More like a money-grab.
My two cents is to just swap out for a local sim card.
"Look at me, I'm Dr. Zoidberg, homeowner."
I noticed the default pay-per-minute call rate in canada went up to $1.00 from $0.79 (and $.59 optional add-on canadian call plan).
In addition, their at&t call international app they released to compete with skype, no longer works correctly on iphone 5, their app developers are being slow in releasing fix.
They let you to drop calling plans sooner than 1 month though, so you get proportioned minutes and plan cost.
