***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Can I use an international SIM card from Taiwan in my iPhone 5C?
sp24681
Newbie

Not sure if this is the right space to ask this question.  Basically I will have trip to Taiwan next month and I had browsed some online about

things to do to avoid unexpected fat bill.  One mentioned to remove the phone SIM card and replace with the local SIM card.  Is that good

enough to completely avoid unexpected voice/data/text roaming?  Any setting on the phone needs to be done in addition?

sp24681 you have certainly reached the right spot! I definitely understand the importance of avoiding an unexpected bill and hope that you have an amazing time in Taiwan! If you're planning on using a local sim, then it's best to turn off the cellular data http://vz.to/1iYugDJ and voice roaming http://vz.to/1g3HFdD until the local sim is added. Just so that you're aware, we also offer Global services for your trip. To check out all the details and rates, please visit http://vz.to/17KseUf .
