The only European operator I am aware of that offers free data roaming is three.co.uk. This is only available in selected countries, but depending on your schedule this might cover a big part of your trip. They seem to have all-you-can-eat option for about 20 GBP pay as you go. However, this is still limited to a total of 12GB/month, with no tethering ...

According to the Verizon Trip Planer they don't offer LTE roaming to Germany for all devices I checked. You can use that tool to look up coverage and plans based on your devices. Even if this were working, the plans seem more expensive than what you can get in Germany. All networks now provide LTE coverage but you need an unlocked device which works with ...

Some providers such as b-mobile and eConnect offer SIM pre-orders: you order it before leaving and it is shipped to your hotel or the airport post office for you to pick up. Note that the post office at Haneda airport is located in the domestic Terminal 1, so you would need to take a (free) shuttle bus to go there from the international terminal. (At Narita ...

There are various offline map solutions for iOS. I use ones based on openstreetmaps such as osmAnd. With these types of apps, you can download maps for the areas you intend to visit either before hand or at places where wifi access is available. Search the app store for "offline maps" to see other possibilities.

All three of the major operators sell prepaid SIM cards with a data allowance from their counters on level 2 or Suvarnabhumi airport. Providing you have an unlocked GSM phone / tablet (no CDMA), you can have 1GB of data for 7 days for 300 Baht (less than US$10). True and DTAC both have 4G networks, and the tourist plans also have free wifi which is widely ...

The Wikia webpage on prepaid mobile options in Hungary seems to point to the fact that, to date, the Go Napinet Netplusz L package from Magyar Telekom (formerly T-Mobile) for 1GB of data seems to be the cheapest option. Indeed, comparing data only-sims with similar data allowances yields the following ordered list (ordered from cheapest to most expensive): ...

I live in Uruguay (and use ANCEL), but I'm in no other way affiliated with them. I just use them and recommend them when have friends visiting because they're, in my opinion, the best choice available here. With their Kit Prepago, you get: 500 SMS to other ANCEL mobiles 512 MBs to use the LTE network (or 384 MBs if you use the 3G infrastructure) 1000 mins ...

Just got back from a month in England, France, Belgium, Netherlands. Texting worked perfectly; phone was fine at 20 cents/minute (though when wifi is available, Google voice is 1 cent per minute); the data at "2G" made me long for the old days with my dial-up modem (56k): typical speeds I got on the free international data roaming plan were 10 to 15k (not ...

I'm not local from uruguay, but I spent a few summer vacations there. It semes that ANTEL has around 50% of the mobile market and, as far as I remember, ANTEL was the only company providing POTS telephony in Uruguay. It used to be a nation-wide monopoly and it seems to remain this way as this link (in spanish) says. That's why they can provide a much cheaper ...

You can get a T-mobiles simple choice plan (in the US) with unlimited international text and data. It works in almost every European country. Technically it's only 2G guaranteed but it tends to work well in most urban areas since there is no 2G anymore and you get upgraded for free to 3G. Total cost will be around $300 or so: you need to sign up, get the ...

For mobile data - as of the 30th April 2016, by EU law, you can only be charged a small excess (+ €0.05 /mb) on what you would normally pay. From 15th June 2017, this will advance further to not additional charge from what you would normally pay. It isn't clear to me if this includes included minutes, texts and data allowances as part of a monthly contract ...

500mb is quite a bit. Have you considered using wifi when available? In my experience there's quite a bit of wifi just about everywhere and I rarely have to use my roaming plan on trips abroad. To answer your question, I don't know of any decent-priced plans that offer 500mb per day in other countries than the home country. I can point you to the plan I use ...

The PDF you provided is both in Slovenian and English language. The English part starts roughly in the middle, so there is no need to translate. Be aware that Tušmobil's cell coverage is not very good outside major cities and other populated areas. To cover the grey area, they have an agreement with the national cell provider Telekom Slovenije, formerly ...

The iPhone 6, unusually amongst smartphones, has such a wide variety of radio bands, it can roam, or be used directly, on virtually any network in the US, (or the world!) and obtain 4G LTE service on any network. Which network actually gets used will depend on the SIM you are using and the roaming agreements that that provider has with US carriers. But the ...

Used it in Fiji (bad), New Zealand (mixed, okay in urban areas not a lot of coverage in the outback), Australia (very good in Sydney), Singapore (okay) Thailand (very good in Bangkok), Germany (mixed, depending on where you are).

Using Mobile Phone or 3G Model will not allow you to have any VoIP call unless you have VPN. I personally can't use Skype on Etisalat or Vodafone for VoIP calls. Whatsapp calls also doesn't work. Egyptian Regulatory confirmed that and another source mention viber
