"I need to use my T Mobile phone in Europe." That was the last thing my wife said to me a few months ago, as she was taking a short vacation to see friends in Portugal. I was at a loss for words to explain the situation to her. I mean, I had also been traveling to Europe several times in the past and I knew how to navigate the continent, but Europe was a whole new ball game. Now, I wasn't really sure what to do. I knew I wanted to continue to use my Blackberry, so I would just book flights and make hotel reservations.
That wasn't going to work, though. Europe is huge, and there are many different networks to choose from. There was only one solution: I needed to learn how to use my T Mobile phone in Europe while I was there. Fortunately, that's easy to do. You see, most of these networks offer free or relatively cheap SIM cards to foreign travelers like you.
Once I got home, I quickly went to Google and began searching for sites that offered these cards. It was such a simple process once I found all the sites that offered free cards, but I still couldn't figure out how to get the card from T Mobile. To top it off, I didn't have a new phone yet. My wallet was hurting, but I needed to get this European roaming deal as soon as possible.
After wasting a lot of my time looking for T Mobile's card in Portugal, I eventually discovered that they do offer a European mobile phone service. You might be wondering why I mentioned that Portugal had free or very cheap SIM cards to choose from. The reason is simple. Most people traveling to Europe have their laptops with them, so they aren't using their own mobile phones. They have their cell phones. But in most cases they have both.
So what can I use my T Mobile phone in Europe for? It's a good question. As a UK mobile phone user, you can use your phone to call Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, and much more. You can also make local calls to anywhere else in the continent for free. The best part about it is that you won't have to pay any fees until you cross over into another network provider's territory. It's a great deal that costs almost nothing to take advantage of.
Unfortunately, this doesn't mean that you can leave your phone in the hotel. They won't approve it, or give you a card to take back over the internet. You can, however, use your card for online shopping on their website and purchase things from their online catalog. Most of the time, you can also get a good deal on other items that you can shop online for.
Can I use my T Mobile phone in Europe while I am abroad? Yes, of course you can! Any kind of mobile phone can be used throughout the EU as long as you have service coverage. Coverage is defined as having access to a signal in at least 5 European countries. To find out if you are eligible for roaming, check your monthly tariffs.
If you're traveling within the EU area, you can use your mobile phone while you are abroad provided that you have service coverage.
