Iphones in Germany

Anyone have recommendations on using Iphones around Bavaria?? I use AT&T, and the International plan offered is pretty expensive...and I'm not sure how good coverage is over there.

I also have AT&T and have used my phone internationally. If you think you are going to need to use your phone for calls, text, or data quite a bit, then I would go ahead and get one of the plans. If you only need the phone for emergency needs, then I wouldn't get the plan but would let them know you are going to be traveling, and then just pay for what you use when you get home. I have gotten the text plans (50 texts for $10) and then use WiFi in hotels, coffee shops, etc for internet use and phone calls back home (Skype or Viber run on WiFi, giving you free phone calls if the other person you are calling also has those apps on their phone).

Used AT&T international plan in Munich, Passau and Freising last year with no problems. Also used it in Vienna and Salzburg. Once when I had poor coverage, I just used phone to select another of the providers, AT&T has several. I only used the phone for Internet and text msgs.
