Verizon's new $15 Unlimited Together plan offers unlimited and discounted calling abroad
Tomorrow, AT&T is going to launch its International Day Pass for traveling subscribers. For $10 on top of your domestic plan, it gives you 24 hours of unlimited talk, text, and regular data charges in over 100 countries around the world. Verizon has cooked up a counteroffer – for $15 a month on top of your plan, Unlimited Together gives you unlimited calls to landlines in 70+ countries, mobile numbers in 30+ countries, and discounted minutes for 160+ countries.

Hopefully, you will have lots of things to say, as it seems the plan is made strictly for talking, because no texting or data benefits are mentioned anywhere. Still, Verizon does offer TravelPass, which is a $10 per day plan that gives you domestic talk, text, and data allowances in 100 countries abroad. So Verizon subscribers are free to make the decision that sounds best to them.

Recently, Verizon launched a new plan that offers 5GB of traffic plus unlimited talk and text for $60/mo. It's designed to sit between the $50 plan with 4GB data and $70 plan with 8GB data, freeing customers who don't use more than 5GB of data per month from paying for data they aren't using.

And for no extra cost, I get unlimited texting and data in 140+ countries and talking for 20 cents/min with T-Mobile. I fail to see why AT&T or Verizon's new plan are anything to get excited about. Although, I suppose if you are with those providers and everything they had previously was even more expensive, then this is good.

T-Mobile def has the best VALUE of the major carriers. These new plans aren't really exciting, but I guess an upgrade over previous offers?

the $10/day is definitely a much better value than before. Overall t-mobile does have the better international offer. does it include calling or only through wi-fi?

Calls will cost you 20 cents per min. So, if you wanted to direct compare, you could say T-Mobile provides 50-75 minutes of talk and unlimited text/data in 140+ countries for $10-15. You also can use your phone in Canada and Mexico with no restrictions, but I don't know how that compares to the other two providers.

I don't think VZW allows Canada/Mexico roaming. But I'm on an older plan, this may have changed, but I mean do you really think Verizon is going to give you Canada/Mexico roaming without restrictions?

Hey Verizon. Go bleep your selves. Your the most greedy and crooked network by far. Not a dime from me.
