THE RIGHT CON­TRACT

TechLife Australia - - SUPER GUIDE -

FIND­ING THE RIGHT con­tract for use at home can be dif­fi­cult and it be­comes even more com­plex when work­ing out which one is best for trav­el­ling abroad. There are, how­ever, some steps you can take to en­sure that you are get­ting the best pos­si­ble deal no mat­ter where in the world you are trav­el­ling to.

01 CHECK THE EX­TRAS

Some providers of­fer fea­tures that let you use your phone abroad as part of your home plan. You will pay no ex­tra roam­ing fees at all.

02 A NEW SIM?

You can get a sep­a­rate SIM card, not locked to a con­tract, for over­seas travel. Some providers of­fer very com­pet­i­tive pric­ing for roam­ing data/calls.

03 TURN DATA OFF

If you are un­sure of the charges you will in­cur when abroad, you can turn off mo­bile data be­fore you leave to en­sure you have no bill shocks.

04 A LO­CAL SIM

You can also buy a lo­cal SIM card when you ar­rive in your des­ti­na­tion air­port. Just make sure your iPhone is un­locked and ca­pa­ble of us­ing one.

05 READ THE TERMS

Al­ways read the terms and con­di­tions your mo­bile provider pub­lishes. There may be lim­its to data us­age, es­pe­cially when abroad, so check ev­ery­thing.
