Overseas use BT Family Sim

Go to solution

Good afternoon

 

I have checked the rates but my tired old befuddled brain has not been able to unravel the costs.

 

We will be visiting family friends who live permanently in Greece (lucky people) for an extended stay so wanted to keep in touch .... just in case. Of course, we will use wifi whenever possible but we have not been able to locate the costs for simple texting / SMS sending and receiving.

Can any one of you younger forum members point me to the correct location, namely :

 

1. How much it costs to send a text to the UK

2. Is there a cost to receive a text when abroad?

3. How much it costs our UK relatives to send a text to our BT while in Greece (they are all on unlimited texts)

We won't, hopefully, be making any calls or require data roaming.

 

Thanks

@Carlusha Thanks for posting, check out this link for more info on how much it costs to your your BT mobile abroad

 

  1. It costs 1.7p to text a UK mobile from Greece
  2. There are no extra costs to receive texts when you are away 
  3. It won't cost anything extra to text you

I hope this helps and enjoy your holiday.

There are cheaper options to send text messages. You could use whatsapp. Facebook messenger. It is also possible to make calls back phone calls to UK on this (as long as you have Wi-Fi) and the recipient has the apps installed.
