          (I assume you mean Good Bye rather than Good Buy!)

           

          Yes, the plan ended for non-grandfathered non-business accounts in January, and the replacement plans are incredibly expensive.   The solution for GSM roaming, which is what I need in Europe,  is to use local SIMs, so you can still use VZ in the States.  If however, you need CDMA roaming, not sure what you can do,

            Agreed and that's exactly what I do on my trips across the pond. I use VZW in the U.S. and local & global roaming SIMs when overseas. There are plenty of global roaming SIM cards that provide you with a U.S. phone number - I then forward calls from my VZW phone to that global roaming SIM and have extremely cheap incoming calls overseas.
