I would like to ring a friend who has gone on holiday to the USA. I use Post Office phone which allows me to ring mobiles for free at the weekend but I was wondering if I rang 02 mobile in the US would it deduct any money off their phone, as I have read once where it also charges the receiver.
Thank you for the info I never knew. I have rang many a time before to the US thinking it was completely free. I wonder if the other person found out. I do not know what you mean by roamer. If you reply to roamer I will close after that. TYank you very much.
I should have clarified that only Mobile (cell phone) carriers charge for incoming calls, anyone who takes a cell phone - mobile phone outside of its normal area is classified as "roaming" i.e, he is using another provider's network and is charged for that.
I used Google, and yes, as far as I know roaming(incoming) charges apply all over Europe (maybe not as much as €1.09) but still pretty steep, althoug the EU is cracking down on these extortionate charges by Mobile providers.
If you mean US/Europe landlines then no - no charges!
You threw me there, I thought you meant a United States ship called USS Europe, lol!
Just another point - most North American Mobile providers also charge a connection fee to mobiles on their own network. So If you call an American or Canadian mobile phone THEY will also have to pay to receive your call, I think it's about 25 cents a minute but don't quote me on that!
