    I am aware that if I am abroad, say Spain for example and I receive a call I
    have to pay 50p per minute or whatever it is.

    If I make a call from Spain to UK does the person receiving the call in the
    UK have to pay?

    Secondly if both the caller and the receiver are in Spain at the same time,
    does the receiver still pay to receive the call?

    As above, if both parties are in Spain, would we pay the full roaming
    charges of 50p per minute or will it be a reduced local mobile charge?


    Thanks

    No, unless you're calling a UK 0800 number.

    Yes - if the receiver is also using a UK mobile.

    If both are UK mobiles, the caller would pay the outbound roaming
    charge to a UK number, the receiver would pay the inbound roaming
    costs, the same as they would pay if /anyone/ called them.

    The reason you both would pay for the call, is the call is routed from
    spain, all the way to england, around the uk network for a bit, then back
    out to spain,

    even if the person you call is sat next to you, the call still goes halfway
    round the world picking up charges as it does so,

    I'm going abroad in a few days time, all over europe so a single countries
    sim cars aint gonna be much use to me, and i aint bothering with those call
    back sims again after last years experiance.

    So i'll be sending mms texts home, as they are charged at 20p per message,
    and you get 3000 letters to put in it, (i'll be sending them to an e-mail
    addresse as the phone i want to send them to dosent accept mms's)

    For them to reply to me, they'll use standard texts, unless i can find out
    how much to collext a mms abroad.

    I think that's probably a load of nonsense. If we believe it, it allows
    the networks to get away with it.

    It's 35p actually, but if you subscribe to My Europe Extra for 10 a
    monht, then incoming calls are free, outgoing 25p

    Then, despite remarks above about callback, use it to make cheaper
    outgoing calls -from 2 pence a minute is possible

    You can send ordinary sms from free to 5 cents, plus about a penny
    data cost, using a Java client in the phone that sends via wap/grps,
    such as smsbug, vgsmail, mobisms, vyke or voipbuster

    It's still no excuse - it's trivially cheap these days to send calls around the
    world.
