I'm from Canada and will be in New York for this coming weekend. I'll need to text and call my brother (who is using a UK number) and will need to browse the internet while I'm there. What add ons do I need?

All long distance add ons are for when in Canada, none for when in the U.S.. They do have US data with unlimited minutes and texts.while you're in the US.

np. But think even with this add on calling your bro in UK will be LD plus roaming

Just to stay in contact with your bro with a UK number, I would just get a local prepaid sim and give him your NY number while you are in the US. Will save you much more money

I know you asked this months ago, but texting international numbers is included.  If you had a roaming texting add-on, you would have been able to message your brother's UK number while in the US and received messages as well
