I see the Guardian has published a piece on a European Commission site that reveals the extortionate roaming charges for UK mobile phones across the EU.

Best not to forget one solution to this: if you're going to be in another country for more than a certain amount of time (depending on how much you'll use your phone), get a local SIM card. I for one have an O2 SIM for the Irish Republic and, when I was staying there, had a Belgian SIM: when I cross the border I pop the appropriate one in.

Update: I see that Mick has already mentioned this. Not that that makes my post totally redundant!
