Taking a trip from the USA to Canada...What do I need to do?


Taking a trip from the USA to Canada...What do I need to do?

I will be traveling to Canada in Septemeber and I want to make sure I wil still be able to us my phone when I get there.  Is Canada considered a roaming or international charge?  Should I notify AT&T of my travel plans?  I'm only traveling for five days.

If you want to use your phone, you'll likely want to add international calling. You can do it online or if you have a couple minutes, pop into your local AT&T store and ask the folks there to help you out.
