world talk and text-voicemail query

Hello, I am going to America this month and will need to use my mobile on one day only to ring a car transfer company to give them details of our cruise ship disembarkation.

The rest of the time my phone will be switched off and data roaming disabled.

I guess getting the world talk and text package is the best option but:-

 

1. Do I only pay the £6 charge if I make a call and can I make as many calls as I want for £6

 

2. Do I get charged £6 if while my phone is switched off someone rings me and the call goes through to voicemail or if I get a text while it is switched off

 

3. If the answer is yes to question 2 how do I deactivate my voicemail on a temporary basis and stop texts?

 

thanks

Re: world talk and text-voicemail query

  1. Yes.
  2. Yes, if the call goes to VM. You won't get texts while it's switched off.
  3. Text VM OFF to 150 before you leave.
