You might be interested to know about our new tool which we’ve created to show you just how much it will cost to use a mobile phone abroad. This tool is specifically built for those who want to call or text the UK whilst travelling.
Have a look at it here: https://www.mobileunlocked.com/travelabroad.asp
Select the country you plan on travelling to and the tool will then display the costs of using a UK network (which you might currently be locked to) in that country. We’ve included the price of calling the UK (mobiles and landlines), the cost of texting the UK and also the price of using data whilst out there. The tool will also then show you the same prices from local networks in that country. So if you had an unlocked phone and picked up a PAYG SIM card from one of those networks, you could potentially save a lot of money.
For example, if you were locked to Three in the UK and wanted to travel to the USA, calling the UK would cost you £1.40 per minute and each MB of data would cost £3. If however you had an unlocked phone and used the AT&T network whilst there, each phone call back would cost £0.96p and each MB of data just £1.28.
The tool has helped a number of people so far, so please do share it with your friends and hopefully we can help loads of people save a lot of money that would have otherwise been needlessly spent.
