Is Facetime free when travelling internationally?

I purchased the $40/mo International package on my daughter's phone. I'm trying to figure out if we really need this. I was told from iPhone to iPhone, if you Facetime, it is free, even Internationally. Is this true? She will only be calling me a few times through a two week period, and texting me once a day. Not sure which route to go. Texts are .50, I believe.

FaceTime uses data and it would only be "free" when the phones are connected to wifi.

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

JCLOUSE, you've come to the right place to keep you connected internationally. I can understand the tough balance of saving money but having the connections that you need. What countries is she traveling to? Will she need internet as she is traveling, for directions? Here is a great place to start http://spr.ly/65898oNyz
