International Roaming Plan Details

Day Pass - Trial Offer

With Day Pass – Trial Offer you’ll have access to unlimited talk and text with 100 MB of data for a flat $15 fee per 24-hour period. It starts only when you first incur usage (send a text, make/receive a phone call or start a data session) so make sure to turn off any background apps before your travel. Once you've reached 100 MB, there is a $0.50 per MB overage fee. The plan also includes five recording credits for our digital streaming service, PlayOn.

Once you’ve completed your trip, we'll send you a brief survey so we can get your feedback on how Day Pass – Trial Offer worked for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Currently, only HD Calling (VOLTE) capable phones that are global capable can be used for international roaming. The cellular service for other devices like tablets and Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) will not work at this time. If you wish to use your Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) while abroad, you will need to:

  • Prior to Roaming, turn off the Cellular radio on the watch.
  • While Roaming, connect the watch to the host device via Bluetooth; functionality would be no different than the same configuration in the USA. If the watch and host device move out of range for the Bluetooth, no services will work on the watch.
  • Prior to re-entering the USA, power the watch off and once back in the USA, turn the watch back on and re-enable Cellular on the device.

Please note: If the above steps for Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) are not taken, you could have technical issues connecting to cellular service once you arrive back in the USA.

The following devices are global capable:
 
  • iPhone 6 and higher
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 and higher
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and higher
  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10e
 
 
  • Google Pixel 2 and higher
  • LG G5 and higher
  • LG V10 and higher
  • LG K30
  • LG Stylo 4 and higher
 
 
  • Moto Z2 Force
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Moto G6 Play and higher
  • Sonim XP5 and higher
  • CAT S48c

Please note: For the most accurate and up-to-date list of global capable devices, please visit your local store or contact customer service.

Don’t worry – we still have you covered. You’ll just need to choose from our roaming without HD Calling options.

Unfortunately, not at this time. However, we do recommend you utilize the My Data Manager App. This is a third party app that can be downloaded from the app store that allows you to monitor your usage and provide notifications when your data cap is hit.

The normal start codes such as *611 or *86 to call voicemail will not work while abroad.

We’ll send you an email with your credits and instructions with your first trip. However, you’ll need to contact us or go into a Bluegrass Cellular store to get credits for subsequent trips.**

**Maximum of 15 credits per line per billing cycle.
