Hi, I'm sorry to ask another question about this, I know the forum has posts about this, but I'm a bit frustrated and need some help that I am not getting from Verizon. My wife and I just bought new Samsung S22+ phones, I am going to Ireland Tuesday for six weeks. I was told by the Verizon rep that I did not need an international plan with my unlimited data plan, I was skeptical about this, and of course she was wrong. I prefer to not have to pay for the international plan, as both my wife and I would have to do that. Verizon told me that my phone cannot be unlocked until August 6th and without them being unlocked I cannot get a SIM card in Ireland. I read that SIM cards are harder to deal with for non iPhones anyway. In past years, I've just tried to do wifi mostly, but that can be a headache, and we are going to be gone longer this year, although almost always just in Galway.
Anyone with advice for me? Just bite the bullet and do a Verizon plan? Appreciate any expertise and suggestions.
