Verizon iPhone in Italy & France

Jump to last reply

I searched and didn't see any recent topics on this. I am up for a new phone in May and will probably get an iPhone 5s (or whatever I can get a good deal on from Verizon). We are going to Italy and France in June. I looked at Verizon's international plans and the amount of data provided is horrible (less than 1 GB). After that you are hit with overage charges, and I read (I believe in a Forbes article) that Verizon really screws their customers who travel to Europe with overage fees.

So, I'm wondering what people with Verizon do? I probably won't use my phone much at all to make phone calls or send texts as I will be with the people I want to talk to. And I am trying to set things up so I don't need to use my phone to acess the info I will want when we are out and about. However, I would like to use a few apps like the slowfood italy app for restaurants (food is very important to us), and some Italian and French phrase apps. I am taking a kindle, but there is no kindle version of the slowfood italy book for restaurants, and I haven't seen good phrase books either.

Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks,

Daria
