cost of receiving incoming calls or text message when i am abroad

Hi, I just subscribed the $65 Unlimited Monthly Plan for wireless. Just wondering if I'm able to receive the incoming calls or text message from US when I am abroad. And what is the cost.

No. Prepaid will not work off the continent.

Thanks Gary. Is there any way I can receive the texts or calls when I'm abroad, e.g. in Asia, any plan I can add on, or I should switch to another plan?

Only postpaid can roam in Asia, and At&t may prohibit roaming in the first 60 days.

If you need it to work when out and about, then you need postpaid.

 

If you can check occasionally, maybe WiFi calling would work (if your phone/plan supports it), but that's not a solution if you need access all the time. 

 

If you call AT&T and ask for retention, they have an Unlimited Value plan for $65 (plus taxes/fees) for postpaid.
