Cost and Call charges between UK and USA

Hi,

My partner is about to move to the USA for 4 months. I am on Virgin mobile (he isn't) pay-as-you-go rolling contract £5 a month and I was wondering whether I will incur extra costs to text and call him in the USA [from the UK, where I will be living].

Also when I go to visit him in the USA, will I be charged to send texts and call a) within the USA and b) to the UK?

If I will incur extra charges, how much per text/per minute? And how does that work in terms of me paying it?

Thanks,

Hannah

Re: Cost and Call charges between UK and USA

It depends if your partner is keeping their UK phone and number, if not then you will be charged. I think it is around 26p per minute, but I'm sure someone will correct me.

If you both have wifi then use something like WatsApp. You can both message and call. That's what a friend of mine does as his fiance is in the US
