Just this week, Sprint has revealed that it will be offering basic data and text messaging, absolutely free of charge, in 165 locations across the globe.

Moreover, its subscribers are also free to buy LTE high speed data directly from their mobile device, even without having to place a phone call to customer service support.
Many agree that traveling to other countries is fun -- well except when you have to deal with roaming charges (which can be often borderline exorbitant). But Tink Labs, a firm from Hong Kong, is offering a solution to this problem -- specifically by providing custom made handsets in hotel rooms around the world specially for travelers. These phones would then come with free data, which means that guests can make full use of them when going online, and yup, not worry about roaming fees.
