Hi, my mum and I are traveling to France for 6 days and we will need to communicate with each other while we are there, I want to ask will our 48 numbers still work while we are there and we don't have to get a French number and will we be able to use the Mitch membership and not have to buy add ons.
Also can you explain the unlimited whatsapp messaging, do I have to use the internet while I'm sending a message r can send the message without using Internet and receive a reply without using internet if I have the app.

Well it's not useless because if you want to use your 48 number there at all then you still need it - otherwise things won't work at all.
But the membership bundled calls, texts and data allowance don't cover services while abroad and you need cash credit it EU roaming add-ons.
I explained all this above.


I am not a 48 employee so if you need to contact 48 support then use option 3 or the chat facility here.

It'll work , but you need to buy extra credit soley for Roaming as you can't use your usual membership abroad!! Also you need to see what operator works with 48 in the country you are going to!!

Without going there you can't check it.

But it will work. Smiley Happy

I have been to NI and France in the past year and it worked fine.

And if you are going there then you might want to check out the EU roaming calls/texts add-ons as they may be more cost effective in many cases than paying for calls (outgoing and incoming) and texts from your credit balance while roaming abroad.

 

Cheaper roaming rates

Other call charges

 

Bear in mind that data will not work while roaming abroad.

 

Hope this helps.

When you manually search for networks what do you get?

What happens when you manually select one of the networks?

Can you try another person's SIM in your phone and see what happens?

 

Hope this helps.

Odd. Perhaps a SIM problem? Best to contact 48 support but that's probably not going to help you out while you're abroad unfortunately?
