We had to pay $120.00 pesos each at the TelCel office to use TelCel in Spain/EU for 21 days. It was crappy so the second day there we bought 2 SIMs cards [ each SIMs cost $10 Euros ] from a cell phone shop downtown for $20 Euros each good for the 5 weeks [ was pay as you go 30 days but they added 7 more days because we didn't buy a recharge for $10.00 Euros each after 30 days]  we were there with 400 minutes long distance outside the EU and free unlimited inside the EU and 3 gig of data from Orange Movil. The number will expire in 1 year if you don't recharge it. It had excellent coverage everywhere we went. Our TelCel Samsung Galaxy phones had to be unlocked and the guy did it right there for $12 Euros and readjusted apps we had before with the new numbers  - Whatsup etc. when we returned in an hour.

We were in Basil, Switzerland last September and used our Telcel card and it worked just fine. It automatically switched from Telcel to T Mobil. Then as we moved up the Rhine and Mosel rivers it automatically switched to Orange and we used it as far as Amsterdam. We have UNLOCKED smart phones with no Telcel plan. We just load about 500 pesos on each phone prior to leaving.

Was there an extra "roaming" charge for calling back to the USA or Canada and did it include data on your phone, for email messages etc. ? ? ?

can't help you with calls back to the U.S. as we never did that. Regarding email, we used local wifi so it did not use our 4g data. I recommend you go to Telcel and discuss these questions as they might depend on whether you are on a plan or not. As I mentioned, we just load pesos as we need them and heavily load up before we leave the U.S.
