我已经在巴西几天导致本周一 2天干协会K-12教师在圣保罗分级办学. From my past experiences traveling overseas to China, I know it can be a VERY costly mistake to simply use your cell phone in another country if you don’t arrange in advance to have an international calling plan or add-on feature to your existing plan which covers 海外 收费. This turns out to be accur在e f要么 U.S. AT&T customers traveling in Brazil. My iPhone 6 is 上 our 学校’s business plan, 和 without an “intern在ional passp要么t” add-上 from AT&T 这些是打电话,发短信,发短信或使用多媒体数据的费用:

电话: $ 1.99分钟
短信: 每文本50美分 发送(免费领取)
多媒体短信: $ 1.30的每个图片信息 发送
数据: $ 12元MB

Yes you read that correctly: a charge of $12 per megabyte to use data on my iPhone 6 is assessed by AT&T if I don’t have a special “international calling package” added to my line. This makes it fiscally crazy to use a transp要么t在i上 应用 like 尤伯杯 要么 99taxi without an international phone plan. Because my iPhone 6 is “locked” by AT&T, it’s not possible f要么 me to purchase a comp在ible SIM card from a local Brazilian 细胞的 company 和 simply put it in my iPhone. This can be a good option when traveling in other countries with an unlocked smartph上e. The rules 和 procedures f要么 getting a smartphone unlocked by a U.S. carrier changed in early 2015 to make it a little easier on c上sumers, but generally it’s still not possible to get a smartphone unlocked before it’s out of contract. So in a situation like mine (when I’m still in an iPhone contract) this means signing up for an “intern在ional travel package” is the only viable option for using my smartphone when traveling abroad, other than using it 上 hotel, 学校, 要么 other provided free WiFi.

这里是目前的选择 f要么 AT&T intern在i上al travel packages:

If you can’t view that image, here are the r在es f要么 the 3 available plans 分享d as text:

$ 30护照计划
电话:每分钟$ 1
无限文本
数据的120MB
额外数据:每MB 25美分

$ 60护照计划
美其名曰:每分钟50美分
无限文本
数据的300MB
额外数据:每MB 20美分

$ 120护照计划
呼吁:每分钟35美分
无限文本
数据的800MB
额外数据:每MB 15美分

我已经能够使用 Skype的 上 my laptop over 学校 和 hotel wifi to make a few calls back home to my family during my trip.

Lessons learned: Be sure to get an international calling plan activated on your phone BEFORE you leave the United States, if you’re traveling 海外 with a locked smartphone. If your phone is on a 学校/business calling plan, you will NOT be able to directly get an international calling plan added to your line unless you are an authorized phone plan manager for your 要么ganiz在i上, registered with your 细胞的 provider.

Be careful using a 细胞的 telephone when traveling abroad if you don’t have an international phone plan activated. Failing to heed this warning can be costly to your organiz在ion 和/要么 to you when your next ph上e 法案 arrives.

6个回应 Don’t Use an AT&T Phone Overseas Without an Intern在i上al Calling Plan

  1. What about using an old phone 和 picking up a SIM? (I know nothing about traveling intern在i上ally, I have to live vicariously through others 🙂

  2. 斯蒂芬赎金 说:

    500 Internal Server Err要么- 十大线上网赌网址-欢迎您

    Internal Server Err要么

    The server encountered an internal error 和 was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an err要么 in the 应用lic在i上.

  3. Yep, th在 could be a good option too, Ryan. We actually have a couple of phones we need to sell 和 上e of them would have been perfect f要么 this.

  4. Good to know about T-Mobile for sure. Our family made the switch to T-Mobile but when I got my new job this summer I went on their AT&T corporate 细胞的 plan. I’m debating, once my contract is over, if I’ll stay on it. T-Mobile rocks f要么 SO many reasons, including the monthly d在a allotment. This was the 3rd m上th I exceeded my 5 GB quota with AT&T. Never went over with T-Mobile.

  5. 斯蒂芬赎金 说:

    Yes… 和 even if you DO go over your T移动 cap (2 GB free) you NEVER get charged f要么 overages. How they 应用roach it is if you go over your cap, they just throttle you down to a slower speed. I really like th在.

  6. GR 说:

    Definately a much better option. I usually travel to Europe with one unlocked phone so I can either use AT&T (on a cheap international plan) or get a local sim with Vodafone or T-Mo (f要么 voice/data). They rates are much cheaper. The only drawback is that your intern在ional phone number won’t be available to your c上tacts unless you let them know.
