My family is traveling to St. Petersburg, Russia this summer. I am trying to understand how can we use our phones without being charged thousands of dollars by our phone company. I downloaded WhatsUp but also just realized that if people are calling me and leaving a message I will have to pay . Same with the text. How can we avoid such charges?
I just want to clarify that I am from US. We have iPhones and AT&T for provider. I am bringing my Nikon for camera but iPhone 8 takes great pictures too. My friend advised me to leave our phones home but I do everything on my phone so have to have it.
