    Ok Folks. Long ways away, but I should be going on a business trip to Germany next October/November. What's the easiest way to still be able to use my phone while over there? I'll be there for about 2 weeks, so probably needing about 3-5 GB of data.

    Who is your regular carrier?

    What model phone?

    Right now, sprint, but looking at switching to either Verizon or T-Mobile with an s7 edge.

    If you decide to go with Verizon, you can temporarily enable their International service at quite reasonable cost and have a totally seamless experience which only requires that you reboot your phone when you land in Europe and again when you land in the US. They have a couple of plans - one is like $10 for any 24 hour period and only kicks in when you actually use the phone, the other is something like $40 per week. I have several international travelers at my office, all on Verizon iPhones, and these plans work very well for them. Honestly, plans may be different for non-business customers - I don't know.

    Otherwise, make sure whatever phone you end up with will be unlocked and allow use of SIMs from other carriers. Then, when you are in country, just find a local cell store and inquire as to the best SIM/plan for your needs. You'll find many very good deals, but, of course, you will have only a local phone number for the duration.
