It’s been a while since the word “roaming” struck fear into the hearts of mobile phone users, but in some cases the situation has only been upgraded to “wildly inconvenient,” as in the case of AT&T. The AT&T Passport option is a horrible solution to roaming charges, costing $40 a month for a measly 200 MB of data. Luckily, they now offer the $10 day pass.

While still not ideal for long trips, the $10 fee will essentially allow you to use your domestic plan abroad for a 24-hour period, meaning that if you normally get unlimited minutes, texting, or data at home, you’ll be able to enjoy the same set-up abroad in that 24-hour window.

That’s the good news. Here’s the bad: the day pass can be revoked if you use more than fifty-percent of your plan’s allowance for two consecutive months. Also, the pass only applies to a single device, so if you’re traveling with a group it will have to be purchased for every phone in the group. Worse yet, if you’re on a family plan, you’ll need to pay the $50 fee for each phone and be careful that you collectively don’t use so much data that you get kicked off.

It’s still not AT&T Passport, though. The AT&T International Day Pass is available now.
