Welcome to Vodafone Community
Hey there! I currently have a 12-month contract sim with unlimited texts and calls and 1GB of data. I have a friend in Russia I am dying to talk to, but I'm not sure if I am able to do so for free. Help much appreciated, thanks! H
Please see here: Calling and Texting abroad from the UK
As you can see to text a Russian number will cost 35p per text.
I would look at the link below and add international calling and text allowances to your account, this will work out a lot cheaper and you will be able to connect to your friend in Russia.
Your best option is to connect to WiFi and then use an app like Whatsapp if that's available in Russia. Or Facebook Messenger or Skype.
If both of you are using Apple devices, then imeesenger or if both using Samsung then Duo are other options.
The only limitation is what is available for use in Russia as some of what @jeffkinn has listed and the two I have mentioned could have restriction placed in Russia.
Hi! Whilst i highly appreciate the help, I would like to know there was a way I could possibly contact her without WiFi or data, as I am rarely around WiFi and cannot have data. Thank you so very much! This is my first time on this community and I'm extremely pleased with it!
