Going on your holidays any time soon? Worried that you might need to keep your phone switched off to avoid running up a big data bill? Well, worry no more. From today, just in time for summer, all our Pay Monthly Phone customers will be able to enjoy the best of the internet on their smartphones while in the EU, without the fear of running up a massive bill.
Introducing our brand new Euro Internet Pass, designed to let you browse, tweet, update and upload for just a fiver a day. No more hunting for internet cafés, no more searching for WiFi hotspots. The Euro Internet Pass gives you the benefits of the internet, without any of the hassle.
We’ve made the pass really simple to get. Before you go, check that international roaming is activated on your account with us. When you arrive at your holiday destination, we’ll text you a link that takes you directly to a mobile page for the Euro Internet Pass.
Then all you need to do is check the settings on your phone and switch data roaming to ‘on’, turn off your push notifications (they’re the alerts that tell you things like when you’ve got an email, when it’s your turn in a game or when someone’s tagged a pic of you) so that you’re not using data before the pass is activated, and click the link in the text. Just follow the instructions, and you’re away. Internet on your phone until midnight that day (UK time).
You can also check in advance that your holiday destination is definitely covered here.
As always we’re keen to get your feedback, so please share any comments, questions or thoughts below and happy holidays!
