Frequently Asked Questions

How can I check that my mobile handset will work abroad?

Because different countries use different frequencies to transmit calls, not all UK handsets will work abroad.

The more frequency bands a phone can use, the more countries it can work in. 

Most smart phones are Quad-band, if you are unsure, please check with the phone manufacturer before you travel.

The table below is a guide to which type of phones will work where:
