Verizon iPhone 5 options for 3-week trip to SE Asua

Jump to last reply

Having just learned what it means to have an UNLOCKED phone with Verizon, I'm beginning to explore our options for our upcoming trip to Thailand (2 wks), Laos/Luang Prabang (3 days), and Cambodia/ Siem Reap (4 days). We will be traveling with a WiFi-enabled iPad, and staying at hotels , for the most part, where wi- fi is available.

Use of iPhone would primarily be for texting family back home or occasional searching out information while out and about, checking work emails, maybe an occasional local call, but I can't imagine doing that much.

What are the best options?
1) Using local nano SIM cards? If so, what do you recommend? Do we buy one for each country or is there one we can use throughout our trip?
2) verizon overseas plan? It doesn't look like it's really very good, but I'm only beginning to understand what the plans mean.
3) any other options?

Many thanks for your help! I'm still learning how to use the Smart phone, and it makes me feel anything but!
