Just arrived in Argentina from the US.  I have a family Magenta plan.

Hoping someone can help me understand what type of coverage and rates I have in place.

When I landed in Buenos Aires I turned my phone on and it connected right away and I received and sent a text.  Then I turned of data roaming and went to airplane mode because I was unsure if I was going to get charged or not.

Anyone have experience with this scenario?

Here's the plan for international rates.

Data and texts will be free but data may be slow. Calls will be 25¢/min except on WiFi where incoming calls will be free and calls back to the US are free. Local and other international calls on WiFi should be 25¢/min but I wouldn’t rely on that.

Here are my hints for international roaming.
