International travel setup

CREDO Mobile makes it easy to stay connected when you’re traveling internationally. Make sure you have exactly what you need to keep in touch while you’re away from home. Keep in mind that CREDO offers talk and text service, but does not offer data services while you’re abroad.


What you’ll need to get started

We recommend that you give yourself 48 hours prior to your departure to set up international use for your device. When you’re ready to set up international service with CREDO Mobile, be sure you have the following important pieces of information available:

  • The country, or countries you're visiting
    Rates and service availability depend on where you're traveling.
  • The model of phone you're using
    Voice, text and Wi-Fi will be available depending on the model of your phone.
  • Keep in mind
    CREDO does not provide cellular data service while traveling abroad. If your device supports Wi-Fi connections, you may connect to local Wi-Fi networks in order to access data. If you know you’ll need data while traveling, consider purchasing a local SIM card.

Setting up your device for international travel

Once you’ve determined service availability and your service needs while traveling, you can set up your device to be used internationally by logging in to Member Services and following the steps below. Keep in mind that you will need to follow these steps for each device if you plan on bringing multiple devices abroad:
