AT&T International Day Pass®:

Eligibility: Compatible device with eligible domestic postpaid wireless plan required.

Adding to your device: Once you add this option to your device, International Day Pass (IDP) will stay on your line until you remove it at att.com/myatt or by calling 800.335.4685. Business customers can remove it using self-service (att.com/myAT&T or att.com/Premier, as applicable), by calling 800.331.0500, or by contacting their AT&T account representative.

Daily fee: The first time you use data, make or receive a call, or send a text message in an IDP country, you’ll automatically be charged a $10 daily fee. Text messages received are rated as domestic and do not trigger a daily fee. The fee covers additional data, calls, and text messages for 24 hours from the initial use in any IDP country. You’ll be charged an additional $10 fee for all subsequent 24-hour periods in which you use data, make or receive a call, or send a text message in an IDP country unless you remove IDP. For a list of IDP countries, go to att.com/globalcountries.

Incidental data usage: Apps on your device use data even when you may not be aware. Such usage may trigger the $10 daily fee. To avoid unintended use of IDP, turn off cellular data roaming in your device settings or put your device in airplane mode. 

Data: Data will be drawn from your domestic plan allowance. If your domestic plan includes Stream Saver®, it will apply to your international package or feature. See att.com/streamsaver for more details. Data overage: If you go over the amount of data in your qualified plan, overage charges or data speed reduction of up to 128Kbps applies in accordance with the terms of your domestic plan. If your data speed is slowed, all your data use, including audio and video streaming, picture and video messaging, and other types of data use, will be impacted and may not work.

Unlimited talk: For phones only. Includes cellular calls received in IDP countries and dialed from IDP countries to the U.S. and to other IDP countries. If your domestic plan does not include unlimited talk, minutes of use will be drawn from your domestic voice plan allowance and domestic overage charges may apply. Turn Wi-Fi Calling “off” in your device settings to avoid charges for calls dialed to IDP countries. Calls to non-IDP countries: Calls from IDP countries to non-IDP countries will incur International Long Distance (ILD) charges. Pay-per-use rates apply unless your domestic plan includes these countries or you add an ILD package to your device. Rates subject to change without notice. For details, go to att.com/worldconnect.

Unlimited text: For phones only. Applies only to AT&T Short Messaging Service (SMS) and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and not to other messaging services or applications like iMessage. Messages received are rated as domestic and do not trigger a daily fee.

Service restrictions: Not available for wireless home phone services, connected vehicles, or connected devices. Pay-per-use international rates will apply. International use aboard cruise ships and airlines is not included.
