So I'm leaving the country for about 18-24 months this december for business. I'll be jetsetting all over several countries in South America, Europe and Asia for work. I currently own an iphone 5 with the unlimited data plan with verizon. I'm not sure if it's even worthwhile to keep my plan with verizon when i'm gone during that time. I'd be paying about 70$ a month for about 6 months of the year, because I will be using the suspend service: "When selecting “Other” as your reason for suspending your service, your line will remain suspended for up to 90 days. For each line of your account, you can only suspend your service for up to 180 days in a 365-day period." in other words, I'd be paying about $420 every year if I suspend it for 180 days of that year. I'll be using Skype, and the iOS messages and facetime to talk with family and stay in touch with them through wi-fi connection. anyways, just want your thoughts and opinions. I know verizon is the worst wireless phone company when it comes to going abroad and overseas. T-mobile is probably the best one because they offer unlimited data and texting in over 120+ countries, (then again the signal and speed of data will be extremely slow) I just want to know what my options are. I know it's hard to do away with the unlimited data plan, but I think I should just terminate the service with verizon.
