I got a text message from Sprint during the European Riders Rally in Burkesville, Ky., last month warning me that I was about to exceed the allowed roaming limits.

The problem was that I didn’t realize I was in a low-tech area where my unlimited 3G service applied.

The spectre of a crushingly huge cell phone bill has haunted me ever since.

Until today when I got the Sprint bill for May.

I used 2.72 GB of data during the month, which is no big deal because we have an unlimited data plan.

But happily, the 285,719 roaming minutes I burned up were still within the limits of the plan, so there was no additional charge.

I am very relieved.
