I was quoted unlimited roaming for a month while inthe UK....200.00cdn or 4.00cdn per minute to use my cell phone :shock:

"The roaming ripoff is now coming to an end," Viviane Reding, European Union Telecoms commissioner, said in a statement.

Get your phone unlocked and send your Dad to get you a free SIM to use over here.

A couple of scratchcard top ups will keep you going.

Or buy a new phone for over here.
