AT&T to start selling International Day Pass for traveling subscribers
This Friday, AT&T will start offering a $10 International Day Pass to subscribers traveling abroad. The idea is to keep using your regular domestic plan without being charged per minute, message, or megabyte. AT&T's solution is logging in myAT&T and spending $10 to get unilimited talk and text and use your regular data plan over the next 24 hours, thus only paying for the days you need this flexibility.

The plan covers over 100 countries within Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and all of Central and South America. It takes advantage of AT&T's affiliate networks in each country.

To prevent abuse of the feature, AT&T will remove your IDP if international voice, text, or data usage exceeds 50% of your total usage for two month straight. Thus, the service is designed for short term visits, such as vacations and business trips, rather than extended stays. Also, passes are sold on a per-device basis, which means it could get expensive to connect family members on a shared plan.

Still expensive . Btw Att in México connects to Att México but only The first 10 gigs are at 4G lte speeds my aunt was pissed that after 4 days she got a message saying she used her 10 gigs of fast data so it was hell the next week in a half she was on edge . Tmobile in the other hand works better i used It 2 weeks in México and it was at 4G lte speeds all them 2 weeks. And i used over 25 gigs roaming on Telcel México .

You have to pay $10 a day just so you can use your plan in Canada? That's f**king bulls**t. Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint all allow roaming in Canada with no additional charge (for Verizon that's if you have a 12GB or higher New Verizon Plan), so this is just a slap in the face from AT&T. Get your s**t together this is ridiculous.

I doubt this applies to Canada. This probably applies to countries outside North America.

AT&T's website lists both Canada and Mexico as one of the countries listed for the pass. So even though Mexico is free roaming for customers on the newer plans, that still leaves Canada at $10 a day.
