Leaving the country

I'm going to Germany, France and Switzerland in 4 weeks for 10 days. I was wondering if my phone will still work the same or so I need to do something?

Yes, it will work the same but since you will be roaming on a foreign carrier's network, there will be additional charges for any calls, texts and cellular data usage. Those additional charges can get quite high, especially if you don't have an international plan. To prevent international data charges, you should turn "data roaming" off and only turn it on when you want to use celluar data. You might also consider getting an international plan for your trip, infomation on international plans including rates if you don't have a plan are here: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/international/roaming.html
