    Best to ask your carrier or at the least tell us what carrier you use and whether you have an international plan of sorts or not. Limited information given will always yield bad answers.

    My answer on the limited information would be to turn data roaming off.

    Best bet is to turn off data roaming, so that you aren't accidentally charged for it.

    As for phone service, I'm not too sure. What carrier are you with?





    And you wrote "ieland" twice. Good ol' internet explorer land.

    it'll be charged like going abroad.


    You'll prob be best to call o2 and ask about how much it will be if you go on o2-ie (not o2-uk)

    Is there a Shannon in Iceland? Could be confusing!

    I was in Dublin a few weeks ago and switched roaming off. My hotel had wired internet, but fortunately I had my Airport Express (and MBP to configure it).

    Check your hotel, but I'm sure even the west coast of Ireland has the Internets these days!

    turn off data roaming, texts are 11p and calls made are 16p p/m and to received is 8p p/m i think. Or you could just not use your phone for one whole night :eek::eek:

    Well, O2.ie and O2-UK are essentially different networks by the fact that by using O2.ie you are roaming on your current O2-UK contract. Yes, additional charges may be applied if you text or call.

    Shannon in Southern Ireland is not part of the UK.

    However if you go to Ireland and pop in an O2.ie sim it might work in an O2 locked iPhone. ;) Anyone think different on that ?

    Doesn't matter, I assumed that, I'm on O2-UK Pay monthly myself. You'll be charged Pay As You Go roaming rates. Still, read my reply above.
