I am planning to travel to several countries in western Europe. My phone is Galaxy S4 and I am being told that it is already international ready.
What are my voice/text/data options there? Any experience would be much appreciated.
Hello AhmadF! Having never been to Europe (western or otherwise), I admire your plans to go. Yes, the Galaxy S4 is global ready for use in most European countries. You can use the tool at this link http://bit.ly/xZd3pS to get details on plans, coverage, and how to prepare your S4 to support you during your journey.
I also recommend contacting the concierge of all places you plan to stay to inquire about WiFi services (if any) to help make the most of such low cost (or free) data services to use with your S4. Have a very good and safe journey!
