Vodafone kills data-roaming charges for the summer

Calls from abroad will cost the same as in the UK

Vodafone has revealed its customers will be able to send texts and picture messages as well as make phone calls from abroad for the same price as in the UK throughout this summer.

From June 1 until the end of August, pay as you go (PAYG) and contract customers who have a 'Vodafone Passport' will have their data-roaming charges abolished when they text or call from abroad. Monthly customers who have a minute or text allowance will be allowed to use these when they make calls or texts from outside the UK.

"With our Vodafone Passport promotion you can sit on the beach with your phone switched on knowing you can take and make a call just as you would if you were in your back garden," says Ian Shepherd, consumer director for Vodafone UK.

PAYG customers should text 'Passport' to 97888, while those on a contract should send the same text to 2345. Alternatively customers can register online.

The mobile network also revealed it was reducing the price of international calls for customers on its Simply tariff to as little as 5p per minute to both landlines and mobile number.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
