Yes you can, but you need to activate International roaming on your plan. You have two basic choices:
1) Pay as you go - charged for usage. WARNING, these charges can get into the thousands of dollars very quickly, especially with just a little data use. I do not recommend this route as the sky is the limit and many get surprise $1000 or even $10,000 bills.
2) International Roaming package with 100 voice minutes/100 outgoing texts/100 MB data and unlimited incoming texts. This is $40. You are also protected from going to far over as you will be notified when you reach limits and data is bought in chunks of 100 MB for $25. I just did this in Europe and it worked seamlessly.
