I am travelling to the US; texts are $5.00 per 100; data is $5.00 per 20 MB. Is that per day or per trip? I am going to be out of the country for 4 days but may or may not need to use the phone so am reluctant to purchase a package

Per trip. For example: If you use one text, you'll be charged the $5 automatically and have 99 more texts to use during your stay.

Your billing date might intervene if you don't buy a roaming package.

Day 1 arrive US, text #1 = 5 dollars. Day 2 = use 5 more texts. No charge. Day 3 = billing day. Day 4: the whole $5 cycle starts over again if you send another text.

Same deal with data. New billing cycle = new charge.

Just a heads up.
