iPhone Abroad...

...Carlos just reminded me about this...

I'm going over to France this weekend for a mates wedding and don't want to get spanked with a massive bill upon my return (his stag do & wedding have spanked me enough already ). I'm happy to make calls/texts whilst over there but don't things e-mail/internet cripple you if you access them overseas??

How do I turn these features off??

Also, once I've turned whatever it is off, I guess I won't be able to use things like 'maps' as I've no idea where I'm going!!!

Go to Settings > General > Network and turn Cellular Data off and Data Roaming off.

And yes, there'll be no access to 'maps' as you'll have turned your data connection off. Have you checked with your provider? They often do bundle packages for when you're away on holiday and it's not usually stupidly expensive.

Nice one, hadn't looked in Network settings, I'll have a TomTom with me anyway but was just in case that goes tits-up so I've got a back-up.

Last year on holiday when I was still with Vodafone, I was allowed 25MB a day in Portugal.

They would text to warn you each day you were coming close too.

I thought it was a good deal as my contract allowed me 750MB per month to which 25MB a day abroad is the very same.

Never had an extra penny on my bill.

I'm on pay as you go with O2 and they have some daily allowance whereby they don't charge you over this. Its quite low at a pound or two I think so well worth checking with your provider.

Just got back from Morroco recently and I used a combination of FaceTime, tango and Viber to make FREE calls, video calls and text msgs all the while!

But u must have a Wi Fi connection but most hotels will have this anyway!
