Well, since you do not give any details of which company this is or
what kind of plan you have it's sort of hard to make any sort of
recommendation on how you should proceed. Each company has different
policies on what is considered roaming. Some companies don't even
have roaming charges depending on the plan. Some plans do have
roaming charges. In order to provide you with any suggestion on what
you should do you'll have to provide us with more information on which
company you're using and where you're traveling and what kind of plan
you have subscribed to.
