Manage your costs


Take control of your international use


  • Turn off data services like iMessage™ or Hangouts™.
  • Turn off apps that use a lot of data or that frequently update (like navigation, social media, and gaming apps) when you aren’t using them.

Heads up:

While you’re traveling, we may text you about your data use to help you control your costs.

International billing


Keep in mind, you’ll pay international rates when your phone is active on an international network. If your domestic plan covers that country, you won’t be charged.


  • Traveling outside the U.S., Puerto Rico, or U.S. Virgin Islands? International rates apply to incoming and outgoing calls, texts, and wireless data.
  • Don’t have an international option?
    We’ll charge international use at higher pay-per-use rates.
  • Looking for international use on your bill?
    It may take up to 3 bill periods to show on your bill due to delays in reporting between carriers.

International talk & text


How to make calls, text, and check your voicemail while abroad.

Calling & texting to or from other countries

  • Dial the plus sign (+), then the country code and local number (the U.S., Canada, and most Caribbean countries use 1).
  • To call a U.S. number from another country, dial +1, followed by the area code and local number. For example, +1.123.555.6789.
  • In most countries, you can call a local number from your wireless phone just as you would from a landline phone.

Check your voicemail outside the U.S.

Limit streaming on cellular networks 

Streaming movies, videos, and music uses a lot of data. Try downloading your content before leaving the U.S.  

Turn off data roaming 

When you don’t want to use mobile data, turn it off entirely. Go to Settings on your device and look for Cellular or Network options. Turn it back on when you’re ready to use your mobile data.
