You don't really have to do anything other than enable data roaming, but you'll be charged international rates. You could get your phone unlocked and then get a local sim card when there which might be cheaper.

You should also enable WiFi calling on your device as it now seems to be working. You can call back to the US when your phone is connected to WiFi without incurring any charges.

 

Another option is to purchase a local SIM and service. I do that when I travel to Europe. I get phone calls, texts, and data on the European network, call back to the U.S. using WiFi calling.
