AT&T adds to international data plans

For $69.99 per month AT&T smartphone users can get 50MB of data users in select countries.

AT&T added to its existing international roaming packages Monday with a new plan for smartphone users. The package will feature 50 megabytes of data in 67 countries for $60 per month. That's in addition to your normal voice and data plan and any roaming plan for international voice calls.

To help keep track of AT&T's various offerings, the carrier also launched an AT&T Travel Guide where you can input your international itinerary and get specific roaming rates.

Besides the new smartphone plan, AT&T offers other packages for data use while traveling abroad. The Unlimited BlackBerry International plan lets you receive unlimited e-mail for $69.99 per month. iPhone users have two plans available. For $24.99 per month, you can get 20MB of data in 36 countries, or for $59.99, you can get 50MB of data in 36 countries.

For Windows Mobile and Palm device owners, $24.99 will give you 20MB of data in the same 36 countries. See CNET's quick guide to world phones for a full rundown on roaming packages from all of the major carriers.
