    Two suggestions - has she enabled 'Data roaming' in the 'Settings', 'Cellular' menu?

    Most service providers, too, require roaming to be pre-authorised before you depart on your travels. Was her service provider in the US AT&T? If so, you might need to contact them on her behalf. But remember that roaming charges are very high and she might be better off purchasing a local SIM card.
