Phone/GPS/Internet Access Strategies for European Vacation

Jump to last reply

We are coming to Europe for a month this summer and I'm trying to nail down how our communications will work.

What we want.
- to be able to 'phone home' (Skype or similar is acceptable)
- to have cellular internet access
- to have GPS during the driving portion of the trip

What we've got right now are a couple iPhone 6 handsets (under contract to AT&T), but I was thinking of buying a new iPad w/cellular. If I do that, will I be able to buy a SIM once we're there, pop it in my iPad, and have internet that also could be used for Skype and GPS? Am I correct in thinking our phones are effectively locked out for the trip when there's no WiFi?

We will be traveling from England to France to Italy and back. Thanks in advance.
