Want to use phone in Italy for texts in case I get separated from husband. I don't want to be dinged with large bill. Options?


Just need very very basic. Maybe 10 texts.

There is no add-on for roaming except for the US. Therefore, 10 texts would cost you guys $12 (60 cents to send, 60 cents to receive). The thing is, you can never control who texts you. So if your have friends and family that are texting you because they don't know or don't remember that you're travelling will cost you 60 cents each time. This can add up very quickly if you're the type to receive a lot of texts. The only other option is to have your phones unlocked before you leave and getting prepaid SIMs in Italy (I recommend WIND).
