    I'm on pay before, so I would usually add in $10 at a time to ensure I was sticking to the budget.
    I did get welcome SMS. I've also had to choose "re-select the visited network" in the wind sim tool kit menu to be able to register. Placing a call would just result in disconnect.

    I do travel a lot US/Asia/Europe - mixed feelings. Sometimes everything works just fine, sometimes it does not work at all with various symptoms, sometimes it works initially but then suddenly you can find that data works but voice and texts don't work. Going in and out of airplane mode fixes it. Sometimes it works funny - texts are delayed by many hours all the sudden or arrive next day all at once - phone is beeping and buzzing for few minutes because couple hundred of txts got stuck somewhere past few days and arrived at once..
