Phone card query

Phone card query, post by Neil Gaiman. His young daughter unknowing ran up a $600 phone bill.
"T-mobile now charges $16 a meg for data when you're out of the US.
... had Maddy not set off alarm bells, I could, I have no doubt, have come home to a $5,000 phone bill without even trying."

Sixteen dollars per megabyte! That's criminal. That's like hotel phone prices (which are also criminal, to my mind). One megabyte is three decent-sized photos, not even one youtube video.
