How do I activate AT&T service in Latin America?

If you’re an AT&T Unlimited Premium customer, you don’t have to do anything to activate service in eligible Latin American countries. This feature is part of your plan, so it will start working on its own whenever you travel to one of the 19 countries at no extra cost to you.

How do I use my phone in Latin America if I don’t have AT&T Unlimited Premium?

If you have an AT&T plan other than AT&T Unlimited Premium, you still have one great option for travelling abroad. AT&T also allows you to take eligible domestic plans abroad and get unlimited talk, text, and high-speed datain more than 210 different destinations. Simply add AT&T International Day Pass®.

International Day Pass costs $10 dollars per day for the first line on your account and $5 for each additional line used on the same calendar day. You will never have to pay for more than 10 days per line, per bill. After those 10 days, you can continue using your phone through the end of the bill cycle for no additional charge. The other good thing is that you’ll only pay for the days you use.

How do I turn off AT&T International Day Pass when I’m done using it?

If you’re done using your phone but you’re still traveling abroad, you should turn off data roaming in your device settings to avoid being charged for unintentional use. One other nice thing about International Day Pass, though, is you won’t have to manually turn off this feature once you return to the United States. You can keep it on each line on your account and you’ll be all set for your next trip. You won’t be charged again until you use your phone in one of the 210+ destinations.
