Not necessarily! Your phone must be compatible. An iPhone 4 IS NOT! Check with Verizon before you go! I called a week ahead to confirm my coverage/plan & was told "no problem" but the CSR was misinformed so our phones had NO SERVICE in Canada. Took hours via web chat (I could not call!) to finally get them working then hours on multiple calls on return to hash out the billing mess.
Verizon did step up, made it all right but what a hassle! So contact them, get confirmation in writing or transcript text or email.
Otherwise, the plan works great.
