@adidaskid808 is correct! With AT&T Unlimited Plus Enhanced and AT&t Unlimited Choice Enhanced plans, users can call and text between the US, Canada and Mexico and access their plan when traveling to Mexico or Canada with no roaming charges!

 

We'll be in touch with your prize.

If I have my phone on overseas for emergencies but let it go to VM, will there still be a charge?

2 years ago, I did a fairly long European trip, and used the then available Passport program.  While it was very straightforward - everything basically continued to work the same as if I were home - it was (I thought) pretty expensive - particularly for data, as calls (other than FaceTime) weren't a priority.  Several of the people I was traveling with recommended getting local SIMs (which I couldn't do on that trip even if I wanted, as I hadn't had my phone unlocked) as a (much) cheaper solution.  Were I to do that, what functionality on my phone - relative to my normal service (or Passport) - would I lose, and what operational differences would I see?

Hi, @WeAll-verse

Great question! If the call is sent to V/M and you are registered on international network when the call comes in there will be a charge for international roaming as an incoming call.

Hi Jrandomuser,

 

I want to make sure I understand your question. Are you asking what would have if you had your device unlocked then used a sim card from a local carrier while traveling?

As a rule,ON ANY CELL PHONE NETWORK around the world,if you turn on your phone during roaming ,unanswered and let it go to VM.
You will be charged for the phone ring (Min. 1 minute charge) ,some networks will also charge you the message left on the VM.

I better let someone give you more information about this AT&T passport plan.

@KYL0REN - yes.  Assuming I unlocked my phone and got local SIMs as I traveled, what would change?

@Jrandomuser
You will get charged the local rate when using local sim cards.
For example If you are in UK .For most networks 
For GBP 15 (About US$20) you will get 5GB of data at LTE speed,1,000 local call minutes ,unlimited local text. for 30 days.
This allowance also works in EU countries like Italy,Germany ,France etc.

@Jrandomuser

 

Assuming you have an AT&T branded device, that device is designed for use on the AT&T network. Refer to att.com/travelguide for a comprehensive list of available network types in other countries. You may no longer have access to features such as AT&T voicemail or AT&T Wi-Fi Calling from your device.
