Text/call charging

Question- will it cost me to send a text using a uk number to my boyfriend who is in Italy (using a uk number)
Also he is going to America for 3 months so will it cost me to text/call him then?

Re: Text/call charging

If you are using a UK number from within the UK to phone/text a UK number anywhere in the world it costs you the same. For you it's as if he was in the UK. Any extra costs are for the phone that is abroad only, so what it costs him for you to contact him depends upon his provider/contract.

Sending a text to a UK phone in Italy will be the same as he was in the UK. It will cost him 1p per text to reply.

America - Outgoing text is the same but it will cost a whopping 30p for him to reply.

Lot's of free wifi in Italy and Parts of the USA - consider using a messaging app which is less limiting

The EU one is now pretty standard. Can't say for the USA, he will need to look on his provider's website which should give the details.

Texts to his number will come out of your allowance

Hi Lphill,

no, it won't cost you to send from the UK.
