Traveling in Europe.

Traveling in Europe.

I have an IPhone 5 and would like to use it in France/Spain for 12 days for GPS, and perhaps language and money conversioin.  Don't need to make calls (hopefully) or text, and will use WiFi at hotels.  Recommendations?  Thanks, Larry.

 Hi Larry,

   Unless your phone is unlocked by AT&T.
You need to use International roaming with AT&T.
The info. are on the above post.

 If your phone are unlocked.You may use a local Sim card.
But for France & Spain,you will need to apply the service in person.
With address and passport info.Since your trip is only 12 days.
You may be better off using the WiFi in hotels,McD and coffee shop.

Re: Traveling in Europe.

Be aware you can use the charger as is in Europe but that you may need a wall plug adapter to fit the various wall outlets. Here is an example of one type...

The charger is rated 120/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz...

Check local travel stores, Walmart, Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc...

Hi SoonerAl,
  Do you know most cell phones come with International charger now.
 Most hotels got charger adapter,but OP can pick up any international adapter cheaper at home.

It's easier to use the USB cable connected to a (hotel) computer to charge your iPhone.

Hi,  What do you mean by, "for France & Spain,you will need to apply the service in person"?  do you mean you must bring the unlock code with you to France or Spain?

 Hi Agnita,
    Not code,once the phone is unlocked ,they always unlocked.
 but bring your phone with you,they may need your phone IMEI.
