Mobile Devices

When traveling abroad with your wireless phone, be aware that there may be additional costs for using services outside the United States. Charges could apply not just to calls you make when traveling internationally, but also to texting, web browsing, emailing, BC calendaring, and other internet services.

Before you leave the U.S., check with your phone service provider to see what services will be available to you internationally and how much they cost. If you need to make adjustments to your plan to cover international services, do so before you leave.

If your service provider is not listed here, go to their website and search for international travel or travel abroad.
