Sorry I didn't win, but I do have a question.  How does international day pass work with numbersync and my Apple watch?

Thanks for the reply and happy birthday @adidaskid808

So from what I am reading you can have your USA cellular number operational while travelling but at a premium price regardless of the plan.

  1. $10 per day for a 10 day trip of 2 people is $200.

Unless you really need to roam with your USA number there are far cheaper and better options available outside what AT&T has to offer.

With Whatsapp which is linked to my USA number, I get free calling anywhere in the world to other whatsapp users.

Same applies to Skype and there is the VOIP dongle I use at home that I could take with me.

 

Also, as adidaskid said, you can buy a 1 month plan including almost unlimited everything and free sim card in almost any country. Down side is that you don't have your USA number but upside is the total cost is about $30 for up to a whole month.

 

IMHO if AT&T wants a piece of all the action there needs to be a roaming plan competitive with the figures mentioned above.

@RhodesMan To be honest,USA and Canada cell phone network never thinking of making money out from Tourist.
The SIM card I was talking about early for Iceland,come with the tourist attraction coupon book,you need to paid ISK 1,000 for the book on the flight to Iceland, that is US$10. Also the service you can only use in Iceland only,no roaming !!
So it is also using it or lost it. NO NO refund !!Man Tongue
I had taken out all the Canada Sim cards from my Canadian phones,I put in a SIM card from Ireland and a SIM card from UK.
Because both cards are kind of from EU,they have a very good deal when roaming in EU .Something like 2 euro for 200MB data for a day,making call inc. long distance are 0.18 euro a minute.
Talking about my Canadian phone,roaming calls in here is US$3 a minute,Data is US$ 4per MB,because I am using prepaid service .
We all know the maths .....I think !!Man Mad

Hi all,

 

I will be going to Mexico for a trip in the middle of next month. I JUST logged into my account at www.att.com to see what my options would be. The system asked where I would be traveling and gave me a recommended plan. Luckily I was on a qualifying plan that supported Roam North America, and no changes needed to be made or charges added with the exception of me accepting the terms and conditions. I recommend checking our Online Travel Tool to and see what it recommends!

Hello I will be going to Cozumel Mexico . I know I can use Roam Mex for that , the next day I will be going to Belize I know I can use the Day Pass plan for that , When I call AT&T they told me to add International Day Pass before I leave the States , But when I try to add Day Pass my account says it will remove Roam Mexico , It seems I can have one or the other but not both on my phone at the same time is this correct .

Ok, everyone, it's time for our second pop quiz! Again - the first registered Forum user to reply to this thread with the correct answer (A, B, C or D) will win a $25 gift card! Complete and official rules are available at https://forums.att.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/contest-rules#contest-two:

 

What is Stream Saver?

  1. Stream Saver is Quicksilver’s distant cousin, on his mother’s side.
  2. Stream Saver streams content it recognizes as high-definition video at standard-definition quality, similar to DVD.
  3. Stream Saver helps you identify the closest lake, river or stream to your current location.
  4. Stream Saver keeps you from crossing the streams, which would cause a total protonic reversal to occur, with catastrophic results. Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light. It would be bad ...

 

 

Good Luck!
