Traveling to Canada with iPhone for a weekend? ...

Hey guys, we're pretty new to AT&T. In a couple months I plan to head from the U.S. to Toronto for a weekend. I've heard horror stories about people racking-up insane voice and data charges when traveling to Canada.

When I was with Sprint a few years ago we could add some kind of international plan add-on for something like $3.99 for a single month that completely covered us there.

Does AT&T offer anything similar? What are the options?

Thanks very much in advance,
Chris

Hi Chris, 

 

AT&T does offer international services and it's a great that you're thinking ahead. 

 

I suggest either stopping by an AT&T store or giving customer service a call to make sure the proper features are added to your account while you're traveling.

Pay specific attention to the data add-ons. Roaming plans like the World Traveler do not cover ANY data. The international data is very expensive(starting at 50MB for $25), but it's still cheaper than international pay-per-use. You are probably better off turning off cellular data and sticking to wi-fi while you're in Canada.

I added the international data plan for my trip to Canada ($30 for 50mb) but seem to only be able to access the Internet when I'm connected to WiFi. Whst's going on? Did I waste $30?
