Mobile Question

Basically im going on holiday to Portugal and im on a Orange Contract (yes orange is shit dont ask heh) but does anyone have any ideas how it works.

Will it be say anything i use it for i get charged on in my contract, or are more of my "text allowance taken" (say i get 5000 texts a month and it costs 4times the price per text would if just say i used 4 of those.)

Ive tried orange customer service and got no reply.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Mobile Question

Dont use your phone abroad if you can avoid it, buy a card and use a phone box if possible. Otherwise the phone bill will be horrendous. I think I ran up a £500 phone bill on my phone when I went travelling for a month.

You pay.

Although there was something passed by the EU this week which will bring the prices down in the future.

Re: Mobile Question

There's also some Luxembourg sim-card provider that gives you a flat rate across Europe.
(Radio 2 - Jeremy Vine Show - did a piece on it a week or so ago)


Or you could just read the document provided by Ofcom about Using Your Mobile Abroad

O2 have applied that officially now.

Vodafone has this Vodafone Passport thing whereby calls that's made in your account will be taken from your minutes (depending on the country you're visiting).

Any other network, I don't really know.


I generally don't use my phone abroad at all.
