How much does it cost to contact AT&T support if I have international calling issues while abroad?


@NotTheDroids

 

Excellent question. When traveling outside the U.S., customers can call +1-314-925-6925, 24/7 free from their AT&T wireless phone. You can also check out www.att.com/international for all of your international needs

 

@sandblaster

Thanks for your quick response

Just for comparison, I went without any plan at all (pay per use, which can be expensive).

 I spent $26 last time out of the country.  I used Wifi calling home.  I received a few text and used a tiny bit of data.  I checked in when in the room using Wifi.

@pdiddync If I were gone 4-5 months and could not count on WiFi calling, I would go with the $60 passport plan. Others would get their phones unlocked and purchase a local sim.

@lizdance40, how long were you out of the country when you racked up $26?

9 days.  But like I said, I used Wifi call and text to keep in touch with home.  That’s free.  Incoming text was free.  I sent a few text home and used a little data.

@sandblaster. Read this article. In my opinion seems like federal and local governments think if you can afford to travel overseas you can afford the higher fees.

@Fl_retire Not really an article but a forum much like this one. Lots of speculation but no real answer as to why taxes are so high, at least not that I saw.
