Some new roaming plans are coming to you AT&T customers, and going into effect tomorrow. These new options are being called the “Europe” and “Rest of World” options, and are now joining alongside the Canada and Mexico options. With these options, AT&T has plans to cover most of the places you’d be likely to go, but be sure to check before traveling abroad. Here is a break down of the plans from AT&T’s site:
