Texting To A Number Abroad

Hi, I have a friend who lives in Poland, their number starts with +48. When I text it costs 30p, is this correct? And are they charged for texting me on my UK number? Thanks.

If you are pay monthly then it is 30p. Your friends charge will be down to their network.

Consider installing something like watsapp on both phones to message each other, certainly a lot cheaper

Hi jomary79,

 

30p is correct. See HERE

As for your friend, they would need to refer to their own network provider for charges.

Texting/phoning a foreign number is always going cost more.

Your friend would need to check with their supplier for their costs back to you.

Why not use email or use a messenger service like WhatsApp?

I don't text them very often, as we use Skype a fair bit. I have WhatsApp myself, but my friend isn't into phones and technology and has a very basic phone, which can't WhatsApp etc. Thanks for advice :-)

Re: Texting To A Number Abroad

Ironically if you were to visit Poland then the charge would be only 1p to text a UK mobile due to the EU roaming caps.

Anyway Virgin prices are increasing on July 1st 2016. Hence I was wondering if the cost of an SMS to a foreign mobile also increases since it would be "out of allowance"?
