Everything You Need To Know How to Use Smartphone While Travelling

Pixel SmartPhone
We all want our smartphone to work while we travel. One must know how to get the smartphone working when on road. Whether it is detailed not too complicated and will save money, time and plenty of frustration. The moment we head towards overseas with our phones we are hit with confusing mess of technical jargon, expensive roaming agreements, conflicting advice and non-working gear.

Tablets and smart phones are now as much as holiday essential as sunscreen and swimwear. If you don’t take care when using your smartphone or tablet abroad you could be left paying off a long bill. Using internet or data connection overseas can cost much more than it does at home. So with a bit of time, money and efforts up front, you’ll know exactly what option you have got on the road and can prepare for most eventualities. Do a bit of research, avoid the rip offs, have the right gear with you and you’ll be able to have an affordable, connected trip with the Smartphone in hand.

Following are some tips: 

Check whether your phone will work abroad or anywhere else in the world. Different countries have various network . So see that your phone is compatible with them so it works. Mostly GSM is used all over the world. But now the technology has improved most of the phones are built so that they are working in multiple countries.

Make sure you download what you need before you leave home, including any apps,books, films or music. If you wait until you’re abroad and then download films, music, maps, Guides or restaurants and bar reviews, it will consume large amount of data and you will have to pay a huge bill.

Make sure you turn off data roaming before you go. Otherwise these devices could be downloading data at standard rates throughout your stay and again pay a high bill.

If you want to regularly browse the web on your device overseas, see local Wifi hotspots instead of your mobile internet connection. You can easily access Wifi in places like cafes, restaurants and hotels. Sometimes for free or you can pay to access internet for a limited period.

Buy a local sim card when you arrive at your destination. It means you will have a different phone number while you are there. If you do buy a local sim remember to keep your home sim card safe and secure.

If your children have their own smartphone or 3g/4g Tablet explain about the risk of using it abroad or turn off data roaming on their device before you leave

Usually always check whether skype, watsp and hike are available in that country.

There is a safety net; all mobile operators have to apply a cut off limit once you have used a certain amount of data per month, wherever you travel in the world unless you choose another limit.
