    Many thanks. We leave the UK on 8 May so I need to check if a sim card bought before we leave will benefit from the new charges once they come in. A card which will work in Slovenia and Croatia (which I assume it will from the blurb) will be very convenient although a local card will possibly be cheaper.

    Having checked the Tesco mobile website it only applies to contracts and not pay as you go.

    We're on contract so "we're okay Jack"! :D

    We pay £15.00 a month in total for 2 x Motorola Moto E phones each with 400 mins (250 mins + extra 150 mins for having 2 phones with them), 5000 texts and 500mb data.

    Apparently we can tether too! (y)

    If your tariff has a data allowance included, you can use your device as a personal hotspot at no extra cost. If you don't have a data allowance, or you go over your data allowance, you’ll be charged our standard rates.

    500 meg of data isn't very much - you will eat that very quickly so beware of extra charges

    I know, I've already got some '3' data sims anyway, but might as well use the 'free' stuff first! :)

    EE have just upped the data allowance for roaming to 500mb for £4 midnight to midnight. If you use 500 they offer you another 500 for another £4

    500 mb!

    500 mb is just about enough to update my apps in the morning, before I get out of bed... :rofl:

    (March 31 until today... usage 136 gigabytes)

    JJ :cool:

    I thought it was too good to be true!
    tesco strike again with misleading information.
    although its the same scheme on contract or PAYG
    the is a charge of +4p/min calling +1p/text and 4p/mb data
    IRRESPECTIVE of how much is included in your package.
    so hows that not a roaming charge?

    Are you looking at the charges for the present time? I couldn't find anything on their website yet about the removing of roaming charges from 23 May at all, not even on their contract phones, so I'm just having a chat with them now to clarify and will report back!

    What is pornhub. Can you tell us all about it, what it does etc. I have been looking into the possibility of raising some cash through the the sale/ pledge of unwanted items

    Right, Tesco chat over.

    To clarify:
    • This applies to both contract and PAYG
    • The 'no roaming charges' come into effect for the period 23 May to 3 September 2016 inclusive
    • There are no extra charges during this time (eg no extra 4p min for calls etc) unless you go over your monthly allowance (or use up all your PAYG credit - same as if you were in the UK)
    • There is no time limit on how long you can use it abroad - you can use it for the whole period if you wish (not restricted to 2 months as '3' is)
    • There is no 'allowance' limit - you can use it all in the EU during this period
    • The website will be updated shortly to show the 'free' period details
    (y)

    The website hasn't yet been updated with the details of the free roaming period but will be very shortly I'm told, so what you are reading IS the present situation, not the 'free' period situation - see my post above for details.
