I'm  travelling to Europe for 4 weeks.  At $12/day that is alot of money. If I don't purchase it and only text and use wifi what will be charged?

It's 60 cents per outgoings SMS for pay per use. If you're going for a month then look into prepaid sim options. It's almost always cheaper. Which country or countries will you be going to?

This is a site that Goran and I like:

With a European Union SIM, you will be able to text and actually use your phone locally to take care of last minute reservations, etc. without busting the bank.

No offense intended. Have a hard time keeping track of everyone here.
