It's not clear. As far as I know, nothing has been ruled out or abolished, it's just that announced dates for vote/approval for new measures slip and nothing has happened yet. There were no further mandatory price cuts planned in the current regulation after the ones that took place last year and therefore no strict timeline. But the idea is still in the ...

That seems to be it: Na uw aanmelding wordt een dagelijkse servicevergoeding van €1 aan u in rekening gebracht voor elke dag dat u Lebara Roaming Services gebruikt. Rough literal translation: After your subscrition, a daily service charge of €1 will be charged for each day you use Lebara Roaming Services. It's not necessarily a bad deal but it's ...

I’m not sure whether what you’re looking for exists. One of the better offers I’ve seen so far is Prepaidzero’s “Prepaid SIM for mobile data in all of Europe” (it’s currently listed at the bottom of their “European Mobile SIM Cards” page). It’s limited to 7GB for a 30-day period, as well as to 500MB per day. A card that’s valid for 15 days costs €221,25 ...

You can purchase a "pay as you go" SIM with a data "pack" or "bundle" on arrival from a mobile phone shop, convenience shop or vending machine (some airports and train stations). You can expect to pay £1 for the SIM (free SIMs are available but difficult to obtain if you don't have a UK postal address) and £10 for a 500MB data pack (which will also include a ...

Most USA phone plans cover the entire USA, so no domestic roaming countrywide and usually no long distance charges for calls within the USA. The phone company websites usually have coverage maps available online, so you can see where you might not have access. The blank spots are often areas with simply no coverage, but some maybe served by a small local ...

My guess is that you will not find anything close to what you are looking for. 30GB is a huge amount of data to be using in 15 days, and $200 is a very low price for it. The only way you'll get close to any form of unlimited data would be to sign up for a new contract with a local telecoms provider in each country you visit. Not only would this tie you to ...

if you have a US number, then US users should pay their normal text fee, while non-US users would have to pay whatever they would normally have to pay to text the US (I can't see anything on the AT&T passport or roaming pages about the cost for others to contact you. This supports the idea that the cost for others to contact you is the same as if you ...

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 assume you like to use your phone from abroad. T-Mobile USA uses a rather strange UMTS frequency bands (1700 MHz AWS). This band isn't supported by most mobile phones. American LTE Bands are generally different than those of the rest of the world. 2G GSM will work with T-Mobile and AT&T. The only network that supports nationswide UMTS on 2100 MHz (as ...
