AT&T Rolls Out New International Rate Plans
The rates for international calling and texting are way better on an MVNO. The only thing AT&T has extra is their data and proprietary apps.
This is referring to services used outside the USA in Canada, Mexico, Europe, etc.
Many countries outside the U.S. have their own pre-paid SIMS as well as long as your U.S. based phone is un-locked.
I would rather not feed AT&T alrady huge pockets for international roaming and data.
As well Voyager Mobile will be eliminating this issue completely sometime next year with cloud based international roaming.

I agree that overseas roaming plans are obscenely expensive, but this isn't at&t''s fault, the roaming rates are set by terms of an agreement which at&t makes with the international carriers. at&t can't just charge whatever they want because it isn't their network that is being used when customers are roaming overseas. For overseas roaming I always use an unlocked GSM phone and buy a pre-paid SIM card in my country of destination, that's always cheaper than any international roaming plan.
That is exactly what I was referring to. Unlocked GSM with prepaid SIM from the destination country. Lots of them get free incoming calls.
I know its not AT&T's fault. Its the destination countries rate ...
