Hi Katleen,
You can buy travel add-on.
$4 for 250 MB
$5 for 500 MB

You can also pay as you go.
$0.20/MB

The website says that travel add-ons take effect immediately and you can add it to your plan any time.

To do so, you need to login.

Hello Katleen,

 

You can start off with what you think you'll need, you can always add more any time later.

Here are the rates:

A Travel Add-On is an Add-On to your monthly plan that allows you to use data in a selected zone. A Zone is a group of countries that all share the same rate for data texts and minutes. In the Travel settings interface, enter the name of your destination country to see the zone, the countries included, and rates that apply.

A Travel Add-on is a one-time package that takes effect immediately and lasts until the end of your next payment cycle.

I was in there in Summer time. $5 for 500 MB will do the job, it cover China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan just fine. I was told it cover Laos too (one friend is there now).

Yes I used out 500m and bought other 500m just fine. You can buy 2nd one in Japan through Fizz data or hotel Wifi.

Only data and SMS incoming working, nothing else (no call in/out, no text outgoing neither).

When you purchase a data add-on, it is valid for the current cycle and the following cycle or until you use all of the data. Given your scenario, one add on of 500MB would be good for the duration of your trip. If you use all of the data before you return, you can purchase another 500MB.
