Since switching to Google's Project Fi plan a few years ago as my primary I've stopped getting foreign SIM cards. The cost is $20 per month unlimited local calling and text in the US and $10/GB of data in the US or while roaming internationally. The service is supported in over 120 countries which includes free text and overseas roaming calls cost $0.19/minute. If connected to Wi-Fi, then the calls go through Wi-Fi calling and calls back to the USA are then free and you don't get charged the roaming rates. It is very convenient to have high speed internet connection in most places around the world as soon as the plane touches down. The only exception is when I'm in India were local call rates and data rates are ridiculously cheap for local SIMs and so I use a local one as soon as I land.
