For a busy lawyer, traveling abroad is entirely different than making a business trip to San Francisco. We rely on connectivity without a second thought within the United States. But traveling internationally—even to Canada—requires advance planning if we hope to maintain that seamless contact.
The good news: You can stay in touch securely and (increasingly) inexpensively with your current phone in most countries. But beware. If you don’t do a little planning before you leave, you may come home to a huge bill from your carrier, even if you’re just going to Canada.
