Question about ATT Global

Hi, I want to buy ATT Global package to be used in Pakistan for 5-6 months. I basically want to be able to receive and text messages while being in US. I will also be making calls but very few. (There is absolutely no need for data)

Please advise which package should I opt for?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure which you are askign for.  Will you be takign your US based AT&T phone to Pakistan for several months and want to use it there, or will you be bringing your phone from Pakistan to the US and want to use it here on teh AT&T network?

 

If you are bringing your phone to the US, then I would suggest that you look into the GoPhone plans because they are pre-paid and do not require you to have data service, where any of the post-paid accounts would.  Also the pre-paid accounts don't require the credit check/ security deposit that a post-paid account would likely have.

 

Now, if you are taking your US phone to Pakistan, I would suggest that you look into unlocking your current phone (or getting an unlocked phone) then get a local SIM for your phone while you are in Pakistan.  This would probably be cheaper than adding International capabilities to your AT&T line, even if you had to buy a new phone to use for 6 months.
