International

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

INTERNATIONAL DATA USAGE ALERT

All plans have restrictions on the amount of data that can be used internationally.  Exceeding that amount will incur higher cost.  Applications like streaming video, Skype and Twitter are data hogs.  Customers have unknowingly accrued thousands of dollars in usage fees without realizing the impact.  Vendors will not forgive these fees.  End users and their departments will be responsible for the charges.  View the data calculator provided by AT&T. 

IMPORTANT NOTE 
Not all cell phones/BlackBerries/PDA's are capable of being used internationally.  Check with VCU Telecommunications in advance of any planned travel for availability and access costs. Adding international use to your plan requires a 10 business day interval.  While a shorter interval can be requested it cannot be guaranteed and will trigger a $210.00 expedite fee/feature and request.
