Limit roaming costs
In addition to disabling “data roaming”, we recommend disabling “mobile data” in general.
On the Samsung S7 for example, the “smart network switch” function must also be turned off. Some Android devices also feature a “data saver” function, which the user must activate.
To prevent any further risk, the following functions should also be deactivated:
- Wi-Fi Assist (iPhone)
- download booster (Samsung).
Yes, you need both options, because (Talk/Internet) “Europe” covers zones A & B, while (Talk/Internet) “World” includes zones C, D & E. Note that zone F, X & Y and satellite zone are excluded.

If you run out of data, you will be guided to a page offering additional data bundles, valid 30 days after activation.
Important: Without any option or additional data bundle you may be charged up to 15.-/MB, depending on the travel zone you visit. For more details see Roaming.
Receiving messages and calling your Voicemail with Salt domestic network is free.
- Receiving messages is charged twice, once as an incoming roaming call and once as an outgoing roaming call

In order to avoid these charges, we advise you to deactivate your voicemail before your trip (ref. How do I deactivate my Voicemail and reactivate it again?).
