New package in addition to required US data, text package
With US-based students and teachers participating in overseas educational programs in mind, AT&T has introduced the AT&T Study Abroad program, an international roaming package tailored for the student's specific needs. Starting August 9, the program allows the user to keep existing phone numbers, and offers students and teachers the convenience of having an existing AT&T device, mobile number and content during a stay in 150 countries.
Eligible customers can choose from two package options. The $60 per month package includes 250 voice minutes, 250 outgoing messages and 250MB of cellular data. The $90 per month package includes 400 voice minutes, 400 outgoing messages, 400MB of cellular data and 1GB of Wi-Fi on eligible devices. The charges do not supplant domestic packages. Domestic calling, data and unlimited messaging in the US are required and must remain active for the duration of the offer.
