I have an unlocked AT&T I Phone 7. I'm going to Barcelona…

I have an unlocked AT&T...
I have an unlocked AT&T I Phone 7. I'm going to Barcelona Spain and several other countries. Do I just purchase a new SIM card when I get there? Is it affordable? Can I text back to the US? Can I receive text messages from my US Number? "Taking a trip? You don't need to unlock your phone. Learn how you can use the talk, text & data you already have in over 100 countries with International Day Pass."
Can I receive phone calls from people calling my US number? At&T has an international plan for $10 per day using my current Sim Card? Convenient but pricey as I'm going to be gone for three weeks. Any suggestions?

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question

You can buy the SIM card when you get there and purchase their data/minute plan like a prepaid option. It will be cheaper than spending $10 a day for 21 days unless you use the phone or data a lot.

If I buy the SIM Card there do I still have my same phone number or is a different one issued?
You will have a local phone number unless you buy the AT&T plan then you can keep the same number

If I have a local number then I can't access my text messages. Correct?
