New to BT Mobile but not BT and roaming

Go to solution

I have had Bt Broadband for many years but have only just got BT mobile Pay monthly account and am wondering about Euro roaming.

 

I read that you need 6 months credit history before roaming us allowed. Does that also apply to someone with a long hIstory of BT broadband?

 

Secondly, assuming I can have roaming, does it work like my previous 02 roaming, where I had to do nothing but just connect to the local 02 provider and use the data but pay £1.99 per day.

 

I think that BT is more expensive at £3.99 per day.

 

Any advice please?

Hi @athegn,

 

If you have had BT Broadband for awhile then you should be able to add Roaming without any issues. 

 

If you take a look at BT Mobile: What do I need to do before I go abroad?, you'll find a few details about using the service.

 

Thanks

Whoops @athegn

 

Try this link here - BT Mobile: What do I need to do before I go abroad?

 

Apologies for the mix up.

 

Cheers,

Looking at your link and APN I see I have two BT APN; but both are BT Internet not BT Mobile. Both seem to have the same settings; same with two BT MMS not plain MMS. Note radio button checked on second BT Internet

Should I create BT Mobile and MMS APN?

Hi @athegn,

 

If you are comfortable creating it then yes please.

 

It's best to the settings outlined in BT Mobile: What do I need to do before I go abroad?

 

Thanks

Don't know if I am comfortable with it, but just created an APN for my HTC Desire for its Orange supplier and mobile data now works; not tried that phone abroad though!

 

Will give it a go.

Set up two new APNs.

 

When I set up the Orange APN I was offered an option of * for APN type only if tapping on field brought up the keyboard.

 

The BT setting do not offer a guide on whether to choose MMS or *; I choose MMS. Is this correct?
