Calling to tell your parents that you landed safely won’t be possible if you don’t have international calling activated in your phone. before you leave, you should call the customer care of your SIM card company and ask them about the charges and plans for international calling.

International data plan

Internet is the basic necessity of your phone and you can’t operate half of the things in your phone without it. features like GPS are important to locate places in a strange city if you don’t want to get lost. And apps like WhatsApp, Instagram are important to stay connected while you are away. Make sure to enquire about international data plans from your SIM card company to activate internet in your phone before leaving.

Buy an international SIM card

If you are going to stay for a long period, international data and calling plans can cost you more than you might have expected. The better option would be to buy a new international SIM card. To make it easier for you, the companies have kiosks at the airport itself so that you can buy it as soon as you land.

    You can get an international SIM card delivered to you before you travel (such as the one I bought from http://www.telestial.com). This gives you an opportunity to inform friends and family of your new number, and gives you a chance to get used to using it.
