At the moment, I'm overseas.   I have a PayAsYouGo sim.   Is there a way to mitigate international call charges when I accept an incoming call from the UK?   Thanks in advance for any help.

No option with O2 @Morrigan 

You could get a local sim if practicable?

 In that case @Morrigan 


Unless you use WhatsApp or Skype then no there isn't.

I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

@Morrigan 

I notice you are PAYG? Prices for Singapore are pretty much the same as pay monthly

Your best bet is to use Wifi and contact friends and family via Whatsapp or Messenger. Or even use a local sim. (as said above)

Hopefully your voicemail is OFF as that will be classed as receiving a call even if you don't respond to it.

If VM isn't off and you cant do it as you are abroad, you will need to contact O2 and ask them to turn it off for you. The number to call from abroad is in this link. https://www.o2.co.uk/contactus
