Unless you want outrageous charges, you should just get a SIM card from a local carrier from there.

This will give you access to mobile data which will be sufficient for iMessage, Facebook Messenger and any other messaging app you might use. Also, for Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram. The downside is that you will not use your regular Verizon telephone number.

Going to Europe sounds fun! We hope you enjoy yourself and stay safe. Being able to keep in contact with people when you're out of the country is definitely a priority. We'd like to ask a few questions to give you a better idea of what the best international service would be for you. How long will you be staying? What country(ies) are you going to? How many lines will you be bringing? What do you plan to use your devices for while you're there? Will any of that time be spent on cruise ships? In addition to answering these questions, you can also find a great resource to plan out your international usage as well as how to make sure your phone's settings are correct while in different countries here on our international trip planner: http://vz.to/2dunn0p.

Mannheim,

I am sure you are excited about your upcoming travels to Europe. It certainly has me feeling a bit jealous, as I've never been there myself. Making sure you are set up for success while traveling and have service accordingly is fundamental and I'd be happy to go over the details.

Depending on the specific phone you have through Apple, you are more than likely able to use the same device for your travels since all of our 4G devices are already unlocked for usage internationally.

To make sure you can stay connected with friends and family while traveling, please check out this link (http://spr.ly/6580DkXRs) for our trip planning tool. I recommend signing in to your My Verizon account when you open the link so you can get the best experience with the tool.

Please reach out if you have any questions. Safe travels!
