Roundup of overseas cell phone plan options, or: To SIM or not to SIM?

Jump to last reply

I found this roundup of overseas calling and data plan options, including SIM cards, to be very useful:
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/21/travel/how-to-pick-a-cellphone-plan-for-traveling-abroad.html?action=click&contentCollection=Television&module=MostEmailed&version=Full&region=Marginalia&src=me&pgtype=article

I now understand why many people choose to buy a local SIM card, but was also surprised at how relatively inexpensive plans from one's provider are--plus, you get to use your own number for all your communications (and if you have T-Mobile, it's free!).

I hope it's useful to others who, like me, may have been confused by what options are out there.
