Is that what americans use? That is so expensive! We are here for 6 weeks mainly in USA, we are going to Alaska, Canada and Mexico for a little bit
you don't have US credit, so getting a pre-paid plan could be tricky - also check out Google Fi

Do you know what you pay for data?
When I go to another country, I don’t use data. I use What’s App to communicate with wifi

Wifi isnt readily avaliable otherwise i will use wifi when appropriate. I used local plans/ sims and data packs as its normally much cheaper than NZ roaming packs. Ive used Europe, Asia, Australia and all were east to use, set up and cheap too.

What do you mean by US credit? I have an unlocked phone if that helps to get a pre paid plan as i can buy a sim card
Google Fi is still $10 for 1 Gig. Is that general cost of data? Every other place ive travelled its so much cheaper 😬
