Roaming in bulgaria

Hi there,

 

I’m going to Bulgaria for a week, in a little over 10 days time, but I’m staying in Sozopol, which I’ve heard is an hour from the Turkish border.

 

is there a chance I could inadvertently roam on to a Turkish network? Would I need to select a Bulgarian network manually?

 

thanks

@mattp2k15   I very much doubt.  As that would be at least 50-70 miles.   How far away is it because a hour away depends on how fast you was travelling.

Safest is to manually select a Bulgarian network.

Hi @mattp2k15

 

Welcome to the community. 🙂

 

If you left your phone on automatic selection mode and accidentally pick up a Turkish network, it would only be a problem for making and receiving calls & texts. I'd recommend checking which network you're connected before making/receiving a call or sending a text so that you're not charged.

 

Your phone wouldn't automatically use mobile data, as you'd have to add an add-on for Turkey in order for it to work.

 

However, probably safest to manually connect to a Bulgarian network. That way you don't have to worry about this at all and enjoy your holiday. 🙂
