Costs to friends

Will my friends incur international call costs if they call my UK number whilst I am roaming in the same country as them?

HI @Benmaddox

Which country you are in?

Not is EU and if you all have max plan it also includes 5 extra countries. 

Thanks

Re: Costs to friends

Hey,

So I am in the US on a max plan so I won't get charges either way but with my US friends on US networks I don't want them to incur any extra costs if they call me whilst I'm here. Do you know if they will?

Thanks

HI @Benmaddox

If you are in USA and call them on there USA number it free for you but if they call you on your UK number it will cost them as international call. 

But if your friends also have UK max plan then it's all free all of you from your allowances. 

Thanks

Your US friends will be charged International calls according to their US network's tariff when they call your UK no.

@Benmaddox   If your on a max plan when did you take out this contract because only the newer max plans allow US calling at no charge to you.

Hi @Benmaddox and welcome to the community.

 

  • Your UK friends will not get charged if they call you if they are in the UK.
  • Your US friends would be charged international rates unless they had bundles/special plan.

Your Max plan will only be valid for use in USA if purchased after May this year (2017)

 

Many thanks,
