I am going to France for a little over a month, and I would like an international roaming plan for that time period. I am currently on a prepaid plan. What is the best way to do this? Is there an add-on I can purchase?

Hey Jess, currently roaming is not available with our pre-paid service. We are working on it though!! In the mean time you can have your phone unlocked and use a local SIM (bought at the airport in France) to call, text back and forth.

Anyone considering roaming overseas should check if the phone is compatible with the local frequencies as well. Most are, at least for voice and text, but the occasional model will not work in certain locales.

I advise that you unlock your phone and get a local sim.

I use this as my resource to find out what's available so you know what to buy when you get there
