International Roaming Tips

After a trip overseas, sometimes a nasty surprise awaits on return: The phone bill shows massive international roaming charges. Often these charges can be avoided entirely or at least reduced with a bit of planning before starting to travel. We have compiled a list of tips and tricks that may be useful when you are travelling abroad.

Firstly it is important to understand when international roaming fees can apply:

  • Making and receiving calls on your phone while abroad.
  • Receiving voicemail on your mobile phone mailbox while abroad, i.e. somebody leaving a voicemail.
  • Retrieving voicemail while overseas.
  • Sending / receiving SMS or MMS while overseas.
  • Data usage while overseas.
