Will I be charged while overseas for any calls or texts.

I am currently in UK and don't want to use my Australian phone other than for WhatsApp. I have turned my phone onto airplane mode, turned off mobile data roaming, removed my SIM and turned on wifi. Is there anything else I need to do to only use wifi while I'm away? Telstra charged me $1200 last trip and I did all of the above except SIM removal and I don't want a repeat.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

You don"t need to do anything else to prevent the phone receiving or making calls. Removing the SIM will stop the phone making or receiving calls.or text.
