Jamesl62, ensuring that you have a working phone while traveling is key. Yes, with the new Verizon Plan Unlimited you can make calls, send texts and use data within Mexico and Canada:
• Unlimited calls
• Unlimited messages
• 512 MB/day of 4G LTE speed data*
*International data reduced to 2G speeds after 512 MB/day.
If more than 50% of your talk, text or data usage in a 60–day period is in Canada or Mexico, use of those services in those countries may be removed or limited.
