Yes, if you are roaming from the UK, then you should usually dial a foreign country exactly as you would at home.
Bear in mind that prefixing with +39 is more likely to work on mobile than 00 39.
Note that to add a + on iOS 10 for iPhone you have hold the 0 key for one second.
If you want to receive phone calls, just make sure you have roaming enabled. You can call your operators to confirm, I believe sometimes you have to explicitly enable it. In countries I've lived in, enabling the service itself was always free.
Virgin for example provides instruction for setting up roaming in your account, similar thing should available for ...
There are mainly 3 mobile network operators in Vietnam. Viettel is currently the biggest one and also the only one that invests in other countries (Cambodia, Laos, Haiti, Peru...). It has very good coverage in rural areas. In remote islands or highland areas the only operator is Viettel. Reason for those? It's operated by the Ministry of Defence so they must ...
Prepaid connections that are bought from outside the J&K state do not work in J&K (Leh is in J&K).
If you want your connection from else where in India to work in Leh you would need a post paid connection. Mobile phone connections from abroad which are post paid will work as well. I have tried a UK EE mobile sim and it works for both data and ...
There are 4 major network operators in Vietnam.
The three largest - Viettel, Mobifone and Vinaphone are all government owned, and right now all have very similar prices. You're looking at about 120,000VND (about $6) for 1.5GB of data which will expire after 30 days.
Vietnamobile is a smaller operator, part owned by Hutchison (who own the various 3 networks ...
It will work fine, you can check for any phone and network at sites like Willmyphonework.net, where both US models of the iPhone 7 come up clear for all NZ phone networks on all frequencies (2G, 3G, 4G).
On a side note, you are required to pay import taxes on the phone when you take it home to New Zealand. The value of the phone (even a few months after ...
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 ...
Some online articles have done the research for you:
Who offers the best 4G LTE connection in Indonesia? Here’s our side-by-side comparison:
For coverage, Bolt takes the lead by covering 750,000 users in Jakarta,
Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi areas. Telkomsel, the country’s
biggest operator, covers a few areas in Jakarta and Bali. While XL
Just arrived in Hanoi. Bought a Mobiphone card. Was unable to data share towards a second phone with an USA number.
A Vietnamese local advised that her phone with Vinaphone network does share data.
Went back to the company at the airport that sold the Mobiphone card. Correct... You can not share data with a Mobiphone card. Bought a second card from ...
There are public phones in Cuba, and they look like this
In order to call you need phone card (tarjeta propia) sold at ETECSA stores, it has blue color. Phone cards are sold in CUCs ($5, $10, and $20) and in Cuban national currency (3, 5, and 7 pesos).
Addresses of ETECSA stores are listed here.
UPDATE: there are three types of phones in Cuba though:
Yes, you will have mobile connectivity. I used Airtel several years ago, worked pretty well.
You will need to buy the sim in Ladakh.
Naturally, you will have proper coverage in the Leh, but in the way or in the villages around much less change.
This website (Hebrew) have several useful tips (summary):
Sim card that bought in India won't work in Leh, ...
eConnect is one company that I used when I was in Japan that I know has that, and they use NTT Docomo network. (it's specified under network if you go to the prepaid SIM page). I went to very isolated areas in Hokkaidō and it worked fine
In the United States and Canada there are two different, and incompatible, cell phone technologies: GSM (which uses SIM cards) and CDMA (which does not). Both are being replaced by LTE (a SIM-card-based technology often marketed as "4G", although its adherence to the 4G standard is limited and thus its use of the term "4G" is controversial).
Without knowing ...
If you're particularly worried about a specific area, for comparison, I managed to find some coverage maps on Sensorly:
Coverage map for Telkomsel 2G-3G
Coverage map for Three - 2G-3G
Note that on either of those, you can change the drop down on the right for (at time of writing) five providers, to see their coverage.
Telus appears to have good 3G and some 4G coverage (search for G0E) of Gaspé and the roads leading around the outside of the peninsula, but no provider appears to have any significant coverage of the provincial park or most of the interior.
I checked several other providers, but coverage was even worse.
If I had to have a phone, I would go with Telus, but ...
You can check the (4G) coverage maps (dekkingsgebeid / dekkingskaart) of the Dutch network providers here: http://www.4gdekking.nl
Have you tried switching to 2G or 3G? Or maybe KPN's coverage is a bit better – their coverage map looks more solid, but the best way to find out for sure is to buy a prepaid SIM and test it.
There are multiple companies that offer world wide coverage with unlimited (or nearly unlimited) data, text, and calling, without extra cost, for example Google Fi, or T-Mobile.
Those offers depend on the country you are buying them in, so you should search around for each of the countries where you go to find the best offer.
If your concern is mainly ...
You could have a dual-sim phone.
One sim serves the european countries, since with new roaming regulamentations you can use the mobile services as you are in your home country. If you are Danish, the only issue is that dutch customers will pay an extra to call and text you.
The other sim could be an Australian Sim card. Your clients will not pay any ...
From what I can find online, there is only one place that sells SIM cards at the arrival area of the Cancun airport. It's "just before the exit. It was straightforward." according to this post.
You can definitely find SIM cards in stores all over Cancun, mostly convenient stores. The best Telcel location would be at the Centro Maya Mall.
You can also pre-...
Oxigen USA website does the job with EXACT $ to ₹ exchange rate and zero fees. None. Zilch.
Accepted my EU debit card for an Indian mobile phone bill payment.
Small downside: my EU bank fee for converting € to $.
Fee can be avoided if you have a bank account with new age startup banks like Monzo (£), N26 (€) or Revolut (£/€).
Edit: now that the promotion ...
"I want 4G while traveling in Indonesia" !!!!???!!!
Unless you want to travel only in the center of big Javanese city, your request is as absurd as asking for only the best cheese on the Moon.
Indonesia is a Huge country and Indonesia is a POOR country. Not poor like Detroit city, mind you. Poor like "my son died because there was no running water at the ...
I only have experience of 3G coverage in Indonesia with Indosat & Telkomsel. So I will only discuss those mobile providers.
I tried those providers in remote areas (Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok, Flores) and also in big cities. Long story short: Telkomsel wins.
Basically, Indosat is "ok" but I found it to be very unreliable in many places. Going ...
I have tried them all over the past years and finally I chose Three for the following reasons:
Prices are acceptable and there are wide variety of packages.
You can check the credit and data balance by visiting a webpage (http://internet.tri.co.id) without any password, no need for SMS or some *???# commands.
Inactivity period is 1 year, while with other ...
