As long as Viber, Line, whatsapp and other messengers around. International connections will use this option to communicate since it is far more flexible which able to send pictures easily, with some you can call thru VOIP.

I guess this $5 service is for people that haven't heard of WhatsApp and the others. So they charge $5 per month and probably send int'l texts through WhatsApp for you. Hah! It's a good profit

Whatsapp also charges when one dials a phone number, be it to a land-line or to a cell without Whatsapp. Depending on the total talk time per month, $5 may or may not be a better deal.

Sadly if you use your AT&T phone with a third party application such as Vonage, Viber, Whatsapp, or even skype without the World Connect Value plan, you'll still end up getting charged the pay per use rates of whichever country you're calling out to. The reason to it is because AT&T does not cover third party applications and the apps will fail on their side and you'll get charged on your AT&T bill for it and call AT&T asking what's going on. So sadly the resolution is to just get the World connect so you won't get charged outrageous rates if you have an AT&T phone
