EU roaming crimes strike post Brexit – watch out for high mobile bills | Mobile phones

Roaming the noise with Brexit, so if your mobile is never far from your hand, it is important to make sure your post-holiday glow is not spoiled by the impact of the bill and information when you arrive home.

Almost all big phone companies, including EE, Sky Mobile, Three and Vodafone have reported roaming charges in Europe, with Giffgaff and Tesco Mobile recently announcing contract changes.

Giffgaff has revealed to its clients that from July 26th they can only use up to 5GB monthly data in the EU. The above level will be damned 10p a MB. In a post on its site, the company is taking on emotional crimes committed when people are wandering around the EU.

Giffgaff said “it has taken some measures to mitigate that price so that we can at least give our members up to 5GB of stoppage in the EU at no extra expense”. The report shows that until 2019, more than 90% of its members are roaming the EU figure less than that.

In another change, Tesco Mobile customers are enjoying a free roaming sun setting in their home from their customer contract. At the beginning of 2023, new sign-ups and upgrade customers will lose this benefit; Existing customers will continue to perk up this process, provided they do not change their engine or move to a sim-only contract. Roaming charges will be 10p a MB of information, 20p text and 55p a minute for vocations.

In 2017, mobile networks in EU countries were banned from external clients to use their phones in other member countries, with the right to send calls, text, and most importantly, use data allowances somewhere in Europe – like home – one of the fragments of popular European laws in the UK . However, the Brexit deal does not include continued protection against nomadic crimes.

The network charges differ from “disturbing time” when you travel to your phone, says Ernest Doku, telecom cost comparison and switching services expert

The first step, Doku suggests you check the destination for disconnected charges and see if your provider has a custom design. This can only restrict your full UK allowance even if you are not limited to the home. Three, for example, have a custom 12GB limit, and 3£ a GB if you go too far.

Of the four big firms, O2 is the only one that says it is currently planning to reduce roaming fees, while Virgin Mobile customers also must be safe from roaming charges “at least this year”, says Doku.

“Depending on whether you finally sent your mobile phone deal, or your phone upgraded, you can be protected from your provider’s new roaming charges depending on your contract at the time it was not written,” he adds.

If you’re changing the network, you can keep it rambling for no additional price – and even save money on your requests. “The last major O2 network does not report roaming fees for customers in the EU, but some smaller networks offer so much sim-inclusive roaming in Europe, and may well be an option if you don’t dare to go too far,” says Doku.

The easiest way to prevent accidental crimes is to enter your mobile phone‘s settings while you are outside, and switch off when it moves. If you need to get online, use WiFi at your hotel or in local restaurants and bars. Remember to also place your flight mode on your phone while in transit to avoid incurring crime while traveling through different regions.

Another option is to change the phone and just relax. Well, you know I can do this.
