We are thinking of switching our US service from AT&T to T-Mobile in preparation for this and upcoming trips to the UK and Scandinavia. AT &T will not unlock our iPhones 5 and 4s because we have not had them for 2 years yet. Our question is to others who have been using T-Mobile phones when traveling to these countries. Have you had any problems with low signal strength in Europe? It is my understanding that we do not need to switch SIM cards out on T-Mobile phones we carry from US to Europe, correct? Is there any additional charge incurred when making international calls, texts, or using data within your plan on T-Mobile phones? Thanks for telling me of your experiences.
