reaching limit on international data plan, need more

I am reaching my 200MB limit on my international data plan, but have more time abroad.  Overage is very expensive ($6/MB I believe).  Is there a way to buy more data?  I would probably only need 50 MB.  Can I just buy the $24.99 50 MB package sort of "on top of " what I already have, or is there a better way?  Thank you.

Re: reaching limit on international data plan, need more

Apparently, not all plans are available in all areas because when I look at the international plans available to me, there is no 200mb plan. I see four international data plans: 50mb, 125mb, 275mb and 800mb. If the 275mb plan is something you can get, simply switch to it and backdate it to the start of your billing cycle. If you have the myAT&T app, you can make the switch from there.


By the way, the overage rate I see on all of the international plans is $10/10mb.
