Roaming mobile phone charges

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 08 January 2013

Have you been hit with a monster mobile phone bill after travelling abroad? Did you manage to challenge it with your mobile phone provider?

In the January edition of 'Your Money' to be broadcast on Tuesday the 8 January we look at how travellers can protect themselves against huge data roaming charges when abroad.

We want to hear your experiences and stories of shock bills and data roaming disasters. Can you top the $200,000 mobile phone bill that landed on the doorstep of one Miami woman or the $10,000 bill of one holiday maker after a 10 day trip to Israel?

Email, tweet using the hashtag #bbcmoney or post on the WHYS Facebook page.
