    This is good news, £3 for 30MB is much better that the £3 a MB they charged me while I was away.

    Re: News - Orange announces daily data roaming bundle for Europe

    Its a great deal compared to previous offerings and prices, but still £3 per mb if you go over this 30mb is day light robbery. Clearly they should allow you just to pay another lump sum for another lump sum of data. Orange clearly intending to cash in on people going over 30mb in 24 hours. People will turn on data roaming on a modern smart phone and see a percentage of this allowance disappear on updates and auto syncing.

    Safer just not to use data roaming.

    Re: News - Orange announces daily data roaming bundle for Europe

    Vodafone have had this for ages: they charge £2 for the first 25mb, £1 / MB for the next 5, then £5 / 5MB block thereafter. 25MB is plenty for the vast majority of smartphone usage per day (I rarely go over ~ 20MB/day in the uk, so if you know it's costing you more overseas then you should be able to manage your data usage). The only problem comes if you tether your laptop then Steam / Windows decides to download updates

    That was a very expensive mistake

    I wonder, do I have to set this up before I leave? Or as I get there...

    For vodafone you have to call customer services to set it up, but they do it for you while you're on the phone. Since it only charges you the top-up fee when you start using data overseas, there's no disadvantage to having it on your tarrif anyway, if you think you're likely to go abroad *and* want to use data roaming...
