DaveSchaefer is on a distinguished road

Recently returned from the Bahamas, where I used Pocketmail for e-mail and ran up a huge bill with MCI. After being told by Verizon, my cell provider, that it had no roaming agreement with Batelco, the Bahamas phone company, I learned Verizon does have such an agreement. I was able to use Pocketmail directly from the cell phone on board and could have saved more than $1,000 in phone bills. Still kicking myself.
