Cellphones play an integral role in our daily lives. We use phones to communicate, connect with far away loved ones, send emails, capture memories… the list goes on and on. While traveling, as obvious as it may sound, a phone is one of the most useful tools you can have. Modern cellphones provide access to maps, recommendations for new activities or sightseeing, and a means to instantly translate foreign languages. However, if you have a bad international plan with your phone provider, this device can quickly become more of a hindrance than a help.
