phone calls while overseas


I have a pre-paid plan which only covers local calls. I'm travelling overseas soon and would like to be able to call my travelling companions if need be. What do I need to do and what's the best number to call to arrange this?

What Country?

Are only calls a concern or do you want much data?

How long are you travelling

If you haven't already, if you mean you intend to stay on Prepaid, check that your plan or plans you're considering have roaming.

It actually depends on your prepaid plan, If your plan has EXTRA credit, You can simply recharge seperately for that. Advised to check for the prepaid charges for overseas. head over to prepaid travel details.
