I am getting ready to leave next week for an extended trip in Brazil and want to make sure I fully understand the AT&T international rates - so I thought I'd ask my friends here to double check my information and make sure I'm correct. Calling: $2.29 per minute for all calls and even if someone calls and you don't answer, there is a charge (is this correct? - more later). Data: .0195/KB (ridiculous). I am considering a $29.99 plan that would give me 20 MB of data to use. Texting: No extra charge for texts received (though they do count against your text plan...) $0.50 for texts sent Can anyone confirm that if you turn off "Data Roaming" that it will not check your visual voicemail? I'd hate to come home to a bunch of charges just because it was checking my voicemail. Lastly, and probably most importantly, as I understand it, the reason for the charge even when you don't answer a call, is that AT&T (in the US) is having to find the phone in Brazil (in my case) and then the call is sent back to the US. So if I were to forward my cell phone calls to another US number (my Google Voice number), I could avoid that altogether, correct? I just want to make sure that AT&T in the US isn't going to have to ping the phone in Brazil just to see where to forward the call. Any help would be extremely helpful to me.
