Not a long time ago, I went on holiday to Thailand. As soon as I hit the ground, I faced connection problems with my smartphone.
My trip to Thailand included a call to Singapore. Before leaving home I checked with my carrier, my data plan abroad… Having heard what the use of data abroad would cost me, I decided to disable it as soon as I would cross the border.
Of course no 3G meant no connection abroad, unless if I was in an area covered by a Wi-Fi network.
Fortunately, that was not the case. As part of the Be-Bound® development team. I had downloaded Be-Bound® on my Smartphone. I enabled Be-Bound® and stay connected with my colleagues and friends in France.
And at controlled cost !
