Global data roaming for free is easy if you're prepared

It is possible to roam internationally on your smartphone for the low, low cost of nothing, if you’re prepared.
I’ve just spent a week in Tokyo, during which time my phone tells me that I burned through 380MB of data. At listed rates, that should have cost me around $1140. Instead, it cost me absolutely nothing at all. Before you ask, no, I didn’t rely on “free” public Wi-Fi hotspots, either.
Over at Geeks2U Geekspeak, I run through how I managed that, and how you can manage low-to-no-cost mobile data roaming from a variety of approaches.
