Re: Can I use my pay as you go phone in usa

Hi Linda10,

you’ll need a triband or quadband phone for the USA.

As you say you have a smartphone I would guess you're OK but Google the spec's for a definitive answer on that one.

 

Before you go, log in to your Virgin Media Mobile account > click on  the "Plan and device" tab.

Go to "Manage my services" > check that "Roaming" is set to ON & "International call barring" is set to OFF

 

Also, check your phone's settings to ensure that roaming is enabled on the handset.

 

You can see call costs: HERE

They're not cheap so you might want to consider using another SIM if your phone is unlocked.
