You don't need a package but it may save you some money.

Pay attention to the last few paragraphs on the right. You have to add Pay-Per-Use international roaming OR pick an add-on. Otherwise, no service.

It's buried more than just a little deep. Should be featured at the top of the roaming page. There are more than the occasional "no service" complaints from outside North America on this board, sometimes with the conversation being needlessly deflected to what bands the phone is using, etc.

Hey BobTheElectrician, just a friendly reminder all of our plans now have the " Pay-Per-Use Intl Long Distance" feature :) Thank you.

I'm sure that's a very fine feature. But let's have a REALLY good clarification as a tutorial video explaining roaming & long distance without having to read 32 pages of the civil code.

Note that roaming costs are incurred when you receive texts too
