Phoning from UK to Mexico on 4G via the Facebook Messenger/Whatsapp?

Anonymous

Hello all,  

 

I really appreciate some help.  

 

I'm going to a concert this weekend and want to phone the concert to my friend in Mexico. I dont think I will have Wi-Fi but I believe I can use my DATA allowance. I currently have 4GB worth of data. 

 

The concert should be about 80 minutes. Will I have enough DATA to phone my friend so she can hear the concert? 

 

Many thanks

You've posted in the wrong place but you can't use your UK data in Mexico.

It will cost you hundreds to do what you are suggesting.

4GB is nowhere near enough to stream and send to Mexico for 80 minutes. Not sure why you would want to use your full months allowance when it will likely be available on YouTube the morning after.

Hopefully @Toby will move this to the relevant section.

And I've just reread it and realised you won't be in Mexico but I still think you will run out of data before the end if the concert.

Thanks everybody for your replies.:smileyhappy: I just wanted to make it special and phone the concert Real time so she could hear it.  O2 Guru said I could use my Data ok but didnt say how much it would use. I might just phone for a couple of songs. It was my original plan to phone my friend the Full concert via Wi-Fi and  I thought Manchester MEN Arena would have Wi-Fi but it looks like they don't after all
