If you are not careful, all of those ‘selfies’ you upload on social media could potentially cost you hundreds of pounds. Here are a few tip Midshire have put together to help you avoid an unexpected high bill.
Tell your provider
Ensure that you contact your network provider for information on whether your phone will work in Brazil and how much it will cost to use the services.
At the same time check to see whether there are an additional bundles or packages you can purchase in order to use certain services.
Turn off data roaming
