American Phone in Israel

Can I use an American phone in Israel?

Phone in IsraelA question tourists often forget to ask prior to their departure… Planning a vacation to Israel is no easy feat: you have to find the best price for plane tickets at a time you are able to fly, decent but not unreasonably expensive accommodations and book an itinerary full of activities to show your family the beauty and significance of Israel. There’s so much to do that tourists often forget to think about their cell phones. They just assume they can use their US phone in Israel.

The problem with this strategy is that cell phone companies charge roaming fees which can generate a huge bill when you get home. Roaming charges for calls range from $1.99 per minute to $3.59, depending on your service provider. Texts will likely cost you $.50 each and data can cost as much as $20 per MB! These charges will quickly add up to a bill of hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

After all the planning and budgeting for your trip, are you really willing to sabotaged by cell phone usage?
