iPhone users should check charges before travelling

Gadget-loving Brits who plan to take their iPhone on holiday with them this year should check with their mobile phone company over charges for using it abroad.
Such is the advice of editor-in-chief of iLounge Jeremy Horowitz, who said that those who plan to use their iPhone abroad may find it wise to check the cost of calls, texts and data use as they could all be higher in a foreign country.
Another way that Brits could potentially avoid unwanted expenditure is to make sure their travel insurance policy covers them for loss or damage to an iPhone while they are on holiday.
Such items may be costly to repair and make a dent in people's holiday budgets.
As of July 1st, the cost of sending a text to the UK from countries within the EU costs nearly three times less than it used to.
Users can now expect to pay a maximum of 9p, compared to the 24p that was the previous average.
