World Phone use- Nephew's positive experience with Tmobile and Windoze Phone

Talking with my BIL, he demonstrated the replacement for the $69 Nokia 521 phone his son used in Europe this summer. He was all around Europe with a choral group for two weeks. He put the T-Mobile plan on it and... 4G LET Data and SMS were FREE (data 1G limit or you can buy unlimited). Wifi calls were free. Regular calls, 20 cents a minute.

My nephew used the heck out of it. And when the phone made an unscheduled dive into the Grand Canal after a speedboat wake tossed him almost into the drink, his photos were all live backed up to his Live Drive account (think iCloud) anyway. Only lost the photo he took juuust before the incident.

I think T Mobile just killed the world phone market with this approach. Wow.

I agree. We recently used our iPhones for two weeks in Italy. Texted with my son back home several times a day and the twenty cent calls back home were a god-send.
