Using Verizon in Europe

Jump to last reply

I am posting a brief report to save others from wasting money as I did. I just recently traveled to Belgium, Netherlands & France for 3 weeks with my family. I wanted to be sure that we could reach one another and decided to spend the money on Verizon international calling plans to use with our iPhones. All were iPhone 6 and so unlocked. There were 4 of us & we used a combination of packages, depending on individual travel plans. Two were $40/month and purportedly provided 100 free texts and 100 free minutes. One was $85 and supposedly provided 250 free texts and 250 free minutes. One was the "Travel Pass" which was $10/day but only on the days used. Note also that the $10/day travel pass means that if you initiate use on any given day, it costs $10, even if you only make one call.
I researched this both online & in person and was reassured that we would be able to text one another. Bottom line: no matter what settings we used (and even though we completely followed instructions), texting only worked when on wifi. We tried many times, using different phones, different locations, different countries, different settings. No matter. Texts would show up hours later (if at all) only once we were back on wifi. I called Verizon while I was overseas and they were unable to help.
Buyer beware.
