It will be rather expensive using O2 there

I don't how much this forum tolerates discussing other products, but it would be worth looking into getting a local SIM card, perhaps used with a separate callback service, and there are also global roaming SIMs with free incoming calls in some countries.

Oh yes, it will be really expensive for someone who is going to travel other than the EU countries. I'd stick to using a local sim whenever I'm abroad as it will be free for incoming calls (except for a few countries like Singapore and China but you can opt in for free incoming calls if you pay a small fee) and free when you receive text messages.

As to those of you who wants to receive text messages on your O2 numbers abroad, just get another phone or the best thing - get a dual sim standby phones like the Samsung D780 or the D880!
