Texts abroad.

Hello,
I am going to turkey next week and am wondering whether I can use my free texts ? I have unlimited texts so am not sure what the charge, if any, there is ?
Many thanks,
Luke

Re: Texts abroad.

In 2009 things were very different. Accounts had a built in 500 Or 1000 SMS allowance, this used 4 for 1 when abroad, even when customers had the free unltd text bolt this 500 was still there, so you had 125 free sms when abroad (250 on the higher allowance)
*this does not apply now*
Any tariff taken since feb 2010, whether as an upgrade, tariff change or new contract, does NOT have any free texts when abroad, so you would be charged for texts sent while abroad, please don't make the mistake of sending texts thinking they are free, unless your tariff is older than feb 2010 of course.

Re: Texts abroad.

Yes, texts in Turkey are charged. they are 30p. Picture messages however, on your tariff, are only 20p. So send them instead.

Yes, I'd look very very carefully before you agree to any changes Sarah. You'll be amazed how things ave changed in 2 years!
