Moblie phone roaming question ?


Well-known Member
We're off to Egypt (Sharm/Cairo)in a couple of weeks and was wondering what operator I would roam to whilst there (We use Orange)

Also would it be better to purchase a global sim and use that ?

You're best off ringing Orange and ask them who they have a roaming agreement with and how much calls cost to make & receive. Then you can decide if a new SIM would be cheaper or not.

hope this helps

Orange abroad (This is for a monthly contract phone) : Orange - costs and services

Global Pay as you go sim :
Global SIM for £19.99, International SIM card from 0044

There are a lot of other providers of global sim cards on the web i just used this one as an example. I've never used one of these myself as i tend to just turn my phone off when on holiday and only use it when it's absolutely neccesary.
There will probably be others on AVF who have specific experience of Egypt who can help you more.
