Cellular Phones/Cell Phone Territories



I was just thinking about a cell phone and whether or not if you go to Europe, can you still receive calls from your friends in the US while you are there?

At first, I assumed that you could, and then I realized that it might not be possible.

Thank you

Yes you can receive calls from your friends when out of the country. They dial you as usual. However you will be charged on a per minute basis because you are roaming outside your home country. Charges can be as high as $3.00 a minute. So be very careful when roaming. Hope this helps.
