What to Know Before You Travel Abroad

For problems or questions while roaming outside the U.S., contact AT&T by calling +1.916.843.4685, 24/7, a free call from your AT&T wireless phone.

A phone that can operate on frequencies available outside the U.S. is required. Most AT&T devices are world-capable and can operate on foreign frequencies of 1800MHz and 900MHz.

If you are traveling to Japan or South Korea, you will need a phone that operates on 3G technology at 2100MHz. Check your device specifications for frequencies supported or visit to verify your device will operate in the countries to which you are traveling.

International roaming rates apply for usage outside our domestic coverage area. International data usage is not included as part of your domestic data plan.

You can contact your sales representative or call us at 866.MOBILITY.

Yes. AT&T offers discount packages for wireless voice, messaging, and data service on more than 250 major cruise ships. Learn more details about AT&T cruise packages. Pay-per-use rates apply while aboard.

911 is unique to the U.S.; however, some foreign carriers do support it. In many European countries, the emergency number for police, fire, or ambulance is 112. Outside Europe, emergency numbers will vary by country. You should learn the emergency number for the country you are visiting before you leave the U.S.

Like any other appliance, you will need a plug adapter to charge your phone in the countries you are visiting. Universal plug adapters are available for purchase at many retailers before you leave the U.S.

In some countries, using a wireless device while driving is prohibited. Contact the local tourist information office for regulations that may apply.

Texting while driving just isn't safe. It can wait.
