If you are on a plan eligible for "global roaming" and are in one of the 140 or so eligible countries --
Text to/from any of those countries is free. Calls are the 20 cents/min. (U.S. is one of the 140)
Wifi calls to U.S. are free. I am unclear as to how wifi calls to other counties are billed. It used to be they were expensive over wifi - but that might have changed.
I have used this feature in 12 countries. There is a way to even make use of the feature in some countries not incl. -- like we did in Myanmar (fka Burma) last fall. Calls via cell would have cost $4 or $5/min. Data and text prohibitive. Bought a local SIM to put in extra phone we have (cost $15 for several Gigs/data) set up hot spot and tethered our 2 phones to the hot spot.
Thank you very much, Miket. I believe I got the answer.
