Frequently Asked Questions

International Roaming lets you use your service for calls, text and data while you are travelling overseas, just as if you were in Australia, using your usual service number. Your service will connect to a local network, who then send us a bill which we then pass on to you.

  • Make sure that International Roaming is activated on your service
  • Turn on Cellular Data / Data Roaming on your service if you plan to use data when overseas

  • Make sure that your device is network unlocked if you intend to use a local SIM card in your device while overseas.
