Sooner or later companies will figure out that they can do the same thing with batteries as they did with ink cartridges.

Tobenisstinky Surprised no one mentioned ekit (200 comments)

I used them for a trip to europe, prices were half of what my local carrier wanted for European roaming. It included data. I have an iPhone 3GS but I had to unlock it to use the sim card.
