This is definitely a step in the right direction, but it's not good enough. Why not introduce a true North American plan that encompasses voice and data.
I you told me for another $120 per year I could use my iPhone (voice + data) anywhere in North America without worrying about roaming, I would be all over it.
I spend the equivalent of 2 months in the U.S. every year, and I don't think I'll be going for this plan. First of all, the cost of voice roaming is insane, despite the travel add-on packs they introduced last year. And while the data part of it is nice, it's still too much money considering I don't use my phone for business, but rather personal use.
Since last year, I purchased 2 cheap, pay-as-you-go Verizon phones, which I use only while in the US. They cost me 99 cents per phone per day I use them (no monthly fee, no contract, no charge on days you don't make or receive calls).
I miss using my iPhone for the data while I'm there, but $120 might appeal to a business customer more than an individual. I rely on WiFi to do email and browsing.
