Last time I went abroad (a week in Lisbon) I was hit with a £160 bill when I got back. I'd only sent a couple of texts and made perhaps one brief call. So why so high? Apparently I'd been 'downloading data'.
I thought that meant actually downloading music or a film or something, but no - it can simply mean 'checking your emails'. That was news to me.
I'm off to France for just one day, and I like to keep in contact with facebook updates and emails and stuff. Is there a way I can avoid these enormous charges, or should I just be patient until I get home?
Many thanks for any advice or tips.

O2 as standard now cap data abroad at £40. Basically you get charged £3 per MB. When you've spent £40 O2 stop charging you and you have the balance up to 50MB to use FOC. When you hit 50MB useage you lose your data. There is a higher option too, read the page for full details.
