Hi! I would like to know if when roaming the time zone difference is adjusted automatically or we need to adjust it manually. Thank you very much. :Smiling:

Hi there! I am very happy to be in this community and I hope I will find nice people who love helping others no matter who they are! :Smiling: Please let me know if this is the right topic. If not, I am very sorry!

I am a 22 year old Romanian who is happy to announce that this year I might visit my uncle in UK, which will be my first time leaving Romania.

I decided to post in the UK community because you live in UK and really know how living in UK is.

I would like to know please, what network operator has the best coverage around Walsall. 

Also, I don't have any experience roaming so I would love any advice you have. :Smiling:

Thank you very much and if you have any questions you can ask me. :Smiling:

Hi @PepsiLover  welcome to the forum. 

Vodafone give very good 4G coverage in the Walsall area, be best to go to other UK network sites to check on their coverage. 

When you arrive in the UK are you planning on using your Romanian sim? If not I would suggest getting a PAYG sim and topping that up for use while here.

Yes I do, I am a Vodafone Romania subscriber. But I guess Vodafone Romania is in good partnership with Vodafone UK. :Smiling: 

Once again sorry if I posted in the wrong topic. :Smiling:

Hi @PepsiLover 

 

Please refer to the Global Roaming Terms and Conditions here:  Global Roaming Terms and Conditions Charges. 

 

'The Roam-further daily charge is only applied on those days that you use your device while in a Roam-further destination. Whichever Roam-further destination you’re in, we’ll count a day as 00:00 to 23:59 local time for the capital city of the country you’re visiting. If you travel to another Roam-further destination on the same day, you’ll only be charged the daily charge once for that one day that you use your device, but it will end at midnight in the capital of the country you were first in'

If the preference is set in your phones clock settings then the phone should auto adjust it's time zone @PepsiLover  Not sure if that's what you mean.

If the query does have something to do with your account then I would suggest you call customer services on 191 , use Live Chat or ask the Vodafone Social Media Teams on 》 Contact-us-for-account-specific-queries

For example in my phone it's in settings and Date and time.

Hi @PepsiLover 

 

Your question wasn't clear, I thought you were enquiring about time change charges.

 

My preference would be to enable the roaming clock in the clock settings, this will give you the benefit of the time back home and in the country you are visiting.

 

If you are using an Android phone, further information from Google here:  Set time, date and time zone

I am sorry! English is not my first language. I joined this community because I might visit UK this year for the first time. I do expect people to not understand me and that's fine. :Smiling:

Hi @PepsiLover 

 

I have merged your threads together.

 

I have seen you are coming to visit the UK from Romania.  Your English is very good.

 

The Romanian network would probably offer roaming to the UK and EU destinations, definitely check with them before you leave for the UK and turn on your roaming clock on the phone for when you call home to Romania.

 

When I replied I gave the information for the UK network and unless you were a Vodafone UK customer that would have been incorrect.

 

I hope you enjoy your visit to the UK.

Oh, you mean you combined my two threads? It was a bit confusing to me at first but I got it. :Smiling: Thank you!

So what if I'm not a Vodafone UK costumer? I might be during my visit in UK because I am a Vodafone Romania costumer so I am sure regardless the signal I might be connected to Vodafone UK. :Smiling:

Hi @PepsiLover 

 

If you are using your Romanian SIM for your visit to the UK, you will roaming on the UK network, and your phone will show an 'R' to confirm you are roaming, you may not necessarily connect to Vodafone UK, you will be able to roam on any network in the UK where you are able to get a connection but since Vodafone have a network in Romania, this will most probably be Vodafone UK.

 

Check with your network before you leave here:  Vodafone Romania they will be able to make sure your roaming is enabled for use in the UK.

I did check with them, they told me roaming is activated ever since I activated my postpaid contract. So my smartphone is ready but I am not, just yet, since it will be my first experience.

It's funny that Vodafone smartphones love Vodafone so much that if they can't find their home signal to look for any other Vodafone branded network. :Laughing_Face:
