We are going to Portugal in April and renting a mobile hot spot. I've never used my phone overseas so want to make sure I don't have any surprises! We plan to use our phones for the internet, GPS, and phone calls/texting/sending pictures to people who have WhatsApp on their phones. I have a few questions ...
Thanks for your help.
It sounds like you are going on an exciting trip. Making sure that you are covered for this trip is important. Are you renting a mobile spot from a local provider in Portugal? If so, to prevent roaming charges the best thing to do is place your device in Airplane Mode. Mobile Hotspots are portable Wi-Fi devices. Simply connect to the Wi-Fi network for that device.

You would need to enable roaming to use the TravelPass option. Click here for instructions: http://spr.ly/6607EkO9x.
