Adventures of an iPhone Abroad

Jump to last reply

I will be in Paris and London for 10 days starting next week, and have been trying to figure out how to manage my cell phone bill for the time we are away. We want to be able to use apps/maps while exploring the city, but do not want to get charged for every email and phone call that comes through.

I spoke with Verizon and they offer a $5 voice plan which makes calls $0.99/minute (we only want to have the ability to call home in case of emergency). Text messages are $0.50 to send and $0.05 to receive. Data is $25 for 100mb (which means nothing to me).

Our plan is to basically shut off our data unless we are connected to WiFi, and turning off Voice Roaming unless we are need to make a call. This way we won't be charged for emails since they are free over WiFi.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to a better solution/one where we can still use travel convenient apps while exploring the cities? I have done some research on a number of Offline Apps, but none of them with Navigation, which is what I think we will need. Any suggestions would be helpful!
