Re: Prepaid International roaming

You can’t. Prepaid service does not support international roaming other than Canada and Mexico.

Re: Prepaid International roaming

I have a friend who lives in Europe and has a cell phone. Can he call me or better yet send me an SMS text if I add the international option to my ATT prepaid phone?

If you are in the USA yes.  If in Europe, you will have no service at all.

Re: Prepaid International roaming

Thanks. To be a little more specific: I have a a bank account in a European bank that is switching over to two factor login.   For the second factor, they send me a six digit code using SMS text message that I would receive on my cell phone. I then enter the code shown on the cell phone into my computer and that lets me login to my bank account.  I will always be in the USA when using this procedure so from what you say, if I add the International Option to my AT&T prepaid, I should be able to receive the SMS text message sent by the bank. Correct?

Re: Prepaid International roaming

To receive calls or text you do not need international plan.  If you call out, you would be charged high rates.  There is no charge to receive a call or text.
