Worst Experience for Travelling Abroad with S2
So I am over the moon with the switch from Iphone to S2, I have changed network provider from O2 to TMobile as well which is saving me £10 a month extra and on redemption after 2 years will save me £200.
I have travelled from the UK to France for a long weekend break with my Fiance. Low and behold, I have the best reception ever but guess what I have no network provider??! My girl who is on o2 has the good signal (normally 2 bars where I have 4) and is connecting to every French network you can find.
Now my Data Roaming is on, my T-Mobile account is not restricted for abroad, I did not alter anything on my phone so I can use it abroad.
Just goes to show that paying the lower price has it's bad things and that was definitely it.
On the flip side, I managed to find a Wi-Fi spot so I ended up using that, but needed to call home was almost impossible to do
Just thought I'd share this with you just in case you decide to get an T-Mobile phone, beware of the cons and pros.
