Hi..going to Romania tonight for a few days. Will Roaming Add-On work there?

 

I don't see it listed anywhere - either on the EU Countries list or on the Other European countries list.

 

Cheers.

I guess they should work since Romania is in the EU but for some reason Romania is omitted from the list of countries below and I seem to recall it being an exception.

 

http://www.48months.ie/membership-plans/going-abroad

 

Our EU Roaming Add-ons work in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Rep, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Antilles (incl Guadeloupe), French Guiana, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Martinique, Mayotte & Reunion, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal (incl. Azores and Madeira), Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain (incl Canary Islands), Sweden, or the UK (incl Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, and Isle of Man).

 

I have a suspicion that 48 don't support any service at all in Romania.

 

Edit: e.g. see an older post from me here: http://community.48months.ie/t5/Need-Help/How-to-fix-No-service-while-roaming/m-p/26819#M8499

 

So you might want to check with 48 support before going.

Also - if you have an iPhone be aware of this issue:

Hope this helps.

48 support confirmed to me that there are no roaming agreements in place to cover Romania so even though it's an EU country EU roaming add-ons will not work there and, in fact, even with cash credit you will not get any service.

I guess one option might be to get a cheap SIM/package locally?

 

Hope this helps.

I didn't know Martinique exist or is a country until i checked list of contries covered by roaming. 

Probably 100 000 romanians living in Ireland and 48 can't make an agreement ?

Shame.

This thread is over two years old.
I see that Romania is not listed on the roaming info page at all.
Neither under Guido EU roaming nor under "rest of Europe".
I've asked 48 support if Romania is covered at all and will post back when I get a reply.

Hope this helps.

This is what I got from support unfortunately...

"We have no service agreements in place in Romania so no service at all.

Unlikely to change going forward unless we can get an agreement setup with a mobile provider over there"

That doesn't make sense.
According to 48 roaming will not work in Romania at all.
EU roaming only works on a Guido membership but not in Romania according to 48 support.
You don't need additional cash credit for EU roaming.
And there are no roaming add-ons anymore.
