Only with offline maps or when connected to wifi.

Google Maps will not be able to download data/maps on demand over carrier data because 48 doesn't support carrier data while roaming abroad.

Have a look at this:

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Regardingtravelingabroad,I am going to Zimbabwe, Africa and just want to recieve any texts that might be sent to me while abroad, I dont want to miss any. Will this happen with my 48 account?

 

I will use wifi and Whatsapp for everything else, ie out going calls or out going texts.

 

Thanks,

 

Grace.

48 don't support roaming in Africa so you won't be able to send/receive texts or make/receive calls. 

And they don't support data abroad at all. 

So no phone services will work at all. 

The only things that will work are apps/services that can work where you have a WiFi connection where available. 

 

Hope this helps.

Are you using an iPhone? 

If so then you're probably getting them via iMessage.

48 don't support roaming in Africa so you're not getting them over a carrier network connection. 

 

Hope this helps.

Hi,

 

No, using a smartphone. Either way however I am picking up a signal, I am receiving texts, which is all I wanted while abroad.

 

Thanks for you help.

Very odd - 48 say that they only support roaming in Europe, North America and Oceania so I have no idea how you're getting a signal in Africa. Man Frustrated

Hi @grainnemhaille@dalyer is right when he says that you shouldn't have service in Africa, the countries listed here are the only ones that you should be able to pick up service in - http://www.48months.ie/membership-plans/going-abroad 

 

I'd like to look into this, can you pop me a PM (private message) with your details when you get a chance? Thanks! Smiley Happy
