International Use

If I call or text a US number and they are overseas, does that count as international use? If so, which party is charged?

What if they are overseas and text or call me via traditional means? If so, which party is charged?

My SO might be traveling a bit now and shopping for plans.  We do MVNOs but it doesn't seem like many of them even offer international add-ons. Really only see US Mobile and Google Fi.

US Mobile offers international calling from the US and wi-fi calling from overseas with international roaming being promised iirc.  Tello offers wi-if calling from anywhere as well.

If you mean calling a US cell phone customer who is currently roaming abroad, you are not charged any differently, the person you're calling that's roaming abroad will be charged the same as if they had made the call - if you were a T-Mobile customer roaming in France for example, the T-Mobile customer would be charged 25 cents a minute for a call - the same if it's incoming or outgoing.

If they are overseas and call you here in the US, nothing changes for you, it just comes out of your normal allowance. The best solution I've found is just using a Google Voice number and making data calls abroad with a cheap local SIM or esim. 

US Mobile only offers international roaming through eSIM.

If your phone supports wifi calling (any iPhone, a ton of Android phones nowadays), your calls abroad will be charged as if they were being made in the US. It's a great option. I have used T-Mobile's wifi calling all over Europe and also in Mainland China and it worked great.

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
