sim question

Hi

 

I would like to use my Virgin data only SIM (from a virgin mobile broadband dongle) in a Nokia Lumia 800 using windows 7.5 when I go to Spain for the GPS for maps, is this chargeable as I don't think it would come off a data allowance in the UK.

 

Thanks

Re: sim question

Hi PhillipF,

 

Thanks for posting Smiley Happy

 

I'm afraid it's not possible to use a mobile broadband sim in a phone while roaming. Sorry about that.

 

Let me know if you have any other queries.

 

Thanks,

Mat

Re: sim question

Thanks slightly confused as it has worked fine in an ipad home and abroad, its currently in the said phone and as it is data only it can send texts and does the GPS thing with maps.

Re: sim question

Hi PhillipF,

 

Data roaming while abroad will use the native masts over there. Because of the sim type and it's abroad, it's impossible for us to guarantee if this will work I'm afraid,


Sorry I couldn't be of more help here.

 

Thanks,

Mat
