First your T-Mobile phone will need to be unlocked if you are eligible. You would then want to find a carrier that uses signal that is compatible with your model. You can use frequency check for that. If you are okay with losing your number you can cancel or suspend if you want to keep it.

Hey saracresp - I'm stoked that your trip is going so well that you're staying for another few months, but sorry that you hit the roaming limit in the middle of your trip. theartiszan has some excellent tips for how to work this out if you're thinking about using a local SIM for the duration of your trip. I wanted to give you some links that might be helpful. You can find out information about requesting that your iPhone be unlocked here: Unlock your mobile wireless device. I definitely agree that if you want to keep your number, since you have a few more months to go, your best bet will be to complete a seasonal suspension on your line. Let me know if you have any questions!
