| | Data Roaming in France on 3
Please Login to Remove!
I am heading to France (from the UK) next week, and would like to be able to continue to receive my Emails on my BlackBerry Torch while I am there.
I have spoken to 3 and enabled International calling and data roaming while abroad. They assure me it will only cost £1.28 per megabyte and that my emails will continue to arrive as normal.
If this is true it is fantastic, and it seems that communicating via email will be cheaper than texting; however it all seems a little too easy and too cheap, after hearing many horror stories about data roaming in the past.
Does anyone have any firsthand experience of using a blackberry in Europe on the and the actual cost involved?
One final thing, the last two times I have been to France I have informed 3, and they have enabled international calling, but when I have got there and tried to make a call I get some French lady telling me something I do not understand and I have been unable to make calls. In both cases I have text my wife, see has contacted 3, but they have said the phone is setup correctly and that I can make calls???
In fairness on both occasions I had a Nokia phone and not a BlackBerry, but if anyone knows what is occurring here and how to solve the issue, other than learning French in the next 5 days I would be very grateful!!
Sorry if I not meant to put two questions in one post and thank you in advance for any help.
