There is another thread asking just this same question, but from a slightly different perspective - why include the SIM extractor tool?. One possible purpose would be to pop in a different SIM, although I haven't seen anything on pre-paid SIMs - maybe it is just to pop in a SIM from a participating country while on vacation.
I just don't like the cost of AT&Ts overseas rates... they are frightening. Yes, I will be using a calling card from a pay phone when I call home BUT I am traveling with a group and when we need to meet up/are lost/etc. it would be nice to do it at a price that isn't going to break the bank.
Here's to hoping Orange and AT&T can work together to allow tourists to switch SIMS (raises glass).

Might be a good plan. If you search around, you'll find a lot of horror stories about folks getting nailed on data simply because they didn't know any better than to disable data transfer on iPhones, Blackberrys, etc. In fact, I might go that route anyway since I'd hate to buy a new iPhone and then get jacked for it 2 weeks later in Mexico. Just have to go find the best pre-paid plan for Telcell with international calling.
