My son has his first station to Greece. He has Verizon for his phone plan. He needs something new because he doesn't have an international plan . Verizon only offers one for 40 dollars but you only get 100 min. and text per month. Can anyone share options to look into?
My daughter is stationed in Japan and we use Facebook video chat and calling. As long as she has data it doesn't cost and believe it or not the quality is actually pretty good.
We also use Facebook messenger to send messages and pictures back and forth.
Hope this helps.
