Boring questions regarding Iphone

Jump to last reply

My husband wants to take his Iphone to India. I think he's crazy because when ever we travel international we despite getting the "international plan" we always come home to a huge bill. We follow the directions and turn off Data Roaming etc. But, we always end up on the phone with AT&T (our phone service) disputing our huge bill.

I thought we should take an old phone (or buys a cheap one there) and getting a sim card. It was suggested we could get a sim card there (or the Iphone) and my husband could get his text's etc.

Please, forgive my Ignorance but if he do take an iphone and get a sim card there can pay a one time fee for the sim card? Will we have the same # and can we receive & send texts?
I told him I would spend my money on shopping and he can spend his on his Iphone bill (which I really don't want him to have to do.)

Thank you so much for helping me understand. ANd, any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
