tecsco mobile internet help

We are off on our hols soon and our soppy 'in love' son is unhappy about not being able to contact his girlfriend while we are away. They are both on tesco mobile. We will be in Portugal and she will be in Ireland, both places with no internet access. If we were to put an internet bundle on his phone does anyone know if they will be able to face book and msn each other. Have no knowledge of mobile interent or being abroad and trying to use it. I know its a daft request but anything is better that looking at his love sick face for a week!

Any bundle you put on in the UK won't cover usage out side the UK.
You'll be roaming on a network in Portugal. Data costs can be as much as 2 or 3 quid a meg. You can opt in to the new roaming data cap but all that will do is cut you off after you hit a £40 spend, which if he's using it a lot will be after a couple of days...

There is no cheap way of using data out side the UK if the other person is also out side the UK but not in the same country (if you were in the same place, then just get local sims for each phone and you then pay local rates).

Many thnaks for your reply. Think the best option is maybe for me to put a call package on my phone and let him make a SHORT call to her each day!..

Thanks again.

Don't forget, you get charged for receiving calls while you're roaming. Not sure of the exact price's on your network but CS can give you the costs for anywhere. . .

Texting would be the cheapest option. Mobile internet is expensive whilst in the UK, let alone when abroad.
