International Travel Pass

Hello, 

     I will be going overseas for a few weeks and got the basics on what is charged for usage, but I have two questions that just want to know the setting my iPhone needs to be in. 

If I’m using my phone on Air plane mode with Wi-Fi, will that trigger the $10 day pass? 

Without Wi-Fi, I use Cellular data but my roaming is always off. Do both need to turn on both, both off, or one of them once I am overseas? 

This is probably confusing, but any information is helpful, thank you.

No. Airplane mode means no cellular service. The day pass only charges for cellular usage.

You need to turn data roaming on to use data when roaming. You should only turn data roaming on when you want to use data. Leaving it off until you need data will prevent unintended data usage and might save you a day pass charge.

Thank you, I know I’m going to have to take it off the air plane mode whenever I leave the Wi-if area, but this definitely cleared things up!

Hello @kileened1, we understand the importance of staying connected while traveling abroad.

 

Thank you, @sandblaster for that helpful information. That is correct, if your device is on Airplane mode then cellular data is not active, and will not activate the International day pass. To roam while out of the country you will need to turn on roaming.

 

For more information explore tips on using your device while traveling internationally on our help page. Below are a few details about our International day pass to consider. 

  • Be sure you have an AT&T unlimited, AT&T 4GB, or Mobile Share plan.
  • Pay a daily fee for each 24-hour period that you talk, text, or use data within an included country. Only one daily fee is charged even when you travel to multiple included countries in the same day. The daily fee applies to each line on your account using International Day Pass.
    • For 1 line, it’s $10 a day.
    • For each additional line on the same account used in the same 24-hour period, there’s a daily charge of $5.
    • You'll never pay more than 10 daily fees per line, per bill period.
  • Call within or between included countries or back to the U.S. at no extra charge while in an included country.
  • Sign up once. AT&T International Day Pass stays on your account for whenever you travel internationally unless you remove it.
  • Forget to sign up? We’ll add International Day Pass to smartphones with eligible rate plans when you arrive in an included country. If we do, we’ll send you a text to let you know we’re adding it and what to do if you don’t want it.

We're here if you have any questions. Thank you for contacting AT&T Community Forums.
