Which is one of the reasons I have a dual SIM phone.
Bit baffled by the bit in bold. I think that if you receive a call and are outside home territory you will be charged.Kilkis wrote:As far as I am aware, there has never been a charge for receiving calls on a mobile phone operating in its country of origin, e.g. a Greek phone inside Greece, no matter where the calls originate.
There used to be a charge for receiving calls and texts on a mobile operating outside its country of origin, e.g. a Greek phone in the UK, but within Europe that has now stopped. It can still apply outside the EU.
The charge for sending a call or texts to a foreign phone is the same wherever the receiving phone is, e.g. sending from a Greek mobile in Greece to a UK mobile in the UK or in Greece. The extra cost over sending calls or texts to another local mobile is now quite small. All roaming charges, calls, texts and data, should vanish altogether on 15 June 2017, although I am not sure that has been fully ratified across the whole EU.

If anyone has had a new sim or upgraded since June 2016 (I think) they will have the new terms and conditions which may include no charge for receiving calls abroad. I think as of June 2017 it comes in automatic.
