Data To Go
Stay connected with your local data plan when you travel. Currently available in 7 countries for $10 a day
How it works
While abroad stay connected with access to your local data plan. You will be automatically charged $10 for 24-hour access to your local data bucket. During that period, you can use your local data plan to email, post on social media, find your way in unfamiliar places, convert currency, translate languages and more.
What is Data To Go?
With Data To Go you can use your Local Data plan while traveling abroad in 7 countries for a low daily fee. Instead of being charged per MB you'll be charged $10/ a day per device, only for each 24-hour period you use your device in any of the 7 countries where Data To Go is available. Enable data roaming for mobile line prior to traveling simply by calling or visiting a DOCOMO PACIFIC location. Charges won't be incurred until you use data services while abroad.

How to help manage costs & data use
- Before you reach your 24-hour access period and you no longer want to be charged, turn off data roaming to avoid being charged an additional $10/day.
- Save data by connecting to Wi-Fi, especially if you download, or send and receive large files.
- View usage and manage your local data bucket with MyData+ Web App at www.docomopacific.com/mydata
Manage your apps
Some apps consume more data than others. Knowing this in advance of your travels can help you avoid unexpected charges. Consider monitoring usage of:
- Apps that use location like navigation, news, and weather
- Social Media
- Video Chatting
- Games with heavy graphics that require an internet connection
- Disable any apps running in the background that you're not using
- Streaming content is extremely data intensive
Disable auto-check on email
- Switch your phone's email settings from “Push” to “Fetch”. This allows you to manually download your email when connected to Wi-Fi.
Use Wi-Fi connections when available
- Wi-Fi usage does not count toward your data allowance
Data usage with iMessage
- iMessage (and other calling messaging apps) are treated as data rather than as a text message
