Cost trap: roaming in the USA

#1
While the charges ("roaming") for mobile phone calls in the countries of the European Union have fallen significantly in recent years and have been completely abolished in some cases, the use of the German mobile phone connection in the USA continues to incur high roaming charges at three euros per minute - it does not matter whether the participant is called or calls himself. A few urgent phone calls with the boss or short vacation reports to those who stayed at home via mobile phone can quickly cost well over 100.00 euros.

Huh What does a SIM card cost in the USA? Which can you recommend?

so sim cards are actually pretty cheap here in the states, it's the phone plan's themselves that get you, often at $20 to $40 a month minimum if you want unlimited calls including international.

@tc4me yeah, try to look for a plan that both has unlimited international and is affordable, we're spoiled for choice here.

if that doesn't work out, look for one with just unlimited data and go full VOIP calling since that's over the internet.

That's fine, I can claim that back on my tax as a work expense.
