International Charges

While traveling in Europe, I want to use my phone for text and talk.  I understand the $10 international plan gives me that option.  I will be traveling for 45 days during which there will be days when the phone is not turned on at all.  Do I get charged every day, whether the phone is used or not?

You should only be charged for each time you use the phone in a 24 hour period for the Travel Pass option.

With a 45 day trip, you might want to consider purchasing a prepaid SIM card from the local carrier for less expensive option. Even if you use the Travel Pass option for only half of the trip that's $230 of international charges. A prepaid SIM card should be less than that for the entire trip.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Feel like we were totally burned by Verizon international plan. $300 overage charge each month. Feel like I received the correct information after the fact. Roaming fee a big issue.
