It depends where abroad really?

@1066TS As @Cleoriff the restrictions are crucial the use in eu zone is only for temporary use not permanent living best to sort a local sim out if in the eu for a whole year .

Re: use abroad

Yes as @Cleoriff said, the restriction about continual usage overseas should be noted.
