With the phone, if you're planning to use data while roaming, you'll need to turn on Data Roaming. For iPhone this is located in the Settings... Cellular menu.


Otherwise yes you just add the appropriate add-on. it's recommended to restart your phone once you hit the USA.

Yes, it worked well for me.  My phone rang and got texts as usual.

I only turned on Data Roaming when I really needed it to conserve what I've purchased for future trips.  I usually updated my emails and FB when I could get free Wifi.
