How to avoid International Data Roaming Charges outside of Canada?

Imagine having no internet while taking phone overseas for 30 days when travelling in India? None. Nil. Wouldn’t that just disrupt life for you? Obviously, it will unless you are a monk reading this.But you would say that we can have free data abroad from the internet on the phone because our service provider gives us mobile phone data that works abroad.Now, here’s the trouble!When you pay for these internet charges at your home country, you incur charges that are fixed. But when you step outside of your state and especially of your country, these charges become nebulous and start eating your pocket. This is probably where you ask the question ‘What is Data Roaming’?Data Roaming is the usage of your data service when you step outside of the boundaries of your telecom operator’s network coverage area. It is charged both domestically and internationally. International data roaming charges or global roaming charges are incurred because your network operator has a tie up with other network operators that give you services on their behalf and hence the roaming tariff. How Does Data Roaming Work?Once you are outside your telecom operator’s network coverage area; any action that involves the usage of your phone data (when not using any WiFi) will incur charges. These charges are incurred as your telecom operator ties up with international telecom operators to facilitate your activity outside your home network operators’ area and hence that costs more. They are technically referred to as interconnect charges. So, whether it is sending that mail you started to write last night or trying to look for navigation, you will be charged for everything. Your phones have settings to turn data roaming service off but only android phones give you reminder/ warning to do that when you step outside the network. Therefore; it is either that you can’t have overseas data or you just pay heavily to have it. Now, to give you a brief idea about the magnitude of these charges; Here’s a Sum up of Data Roaming Charges in Canada and the Available International Data Roaming Plans

La mejor tarjeta SIM del 2018 - Una guía paso a paso para turistas extranjeros

Estás por viajar a la India y necesitas mantenerte conectado con tu familia, amigos y con otros viajeros? Necesitarás una tarjeta SIM para usar en la India. No es por asustarte, pero comprar una tarjeta SIM en la India puede ser toda una experiencia. Léelo tú mismo! Encontrar la tarjeta SIM más económica en la India, que incluya un buen plan de datos y uno que funcione con tu teléfono celular desbloqueado y que te provea internet móvil, puede ser totalmente agotador ya que hay tantas opciones disponibles. Aún cuando el precio por lo general en la India es módico. Antes de que tomes una decisión, lee el siguiente artículo en el que respondemos a las preguntas más frecuentes entre los extranjeros que viajan a la India. ¿Funcionará mi teléfono celular en la India?Tu teléfono puede no funcionar en la India con cualquiera de las tarjetas SIM locales a menos de que esté desbloqueado. En la mayoría de países en el mundo, los teléfonos celulares pueden funcionar sólo con las operadoras telefónicas que proveyeron el teléfono celular y sólo ellos (tu operadora telefónica) pueden ayudarte a desbloquearlo. No podrás insertar ninguna otra tarjeta SIM ni usarla la que ya está ahí con otra operadora a menos de que ellos te lo aprueben después de analizar sus criterios para desbloquear un teléfono celular. Después de eso tienes que seguir un proceso que puede tomar tiempo y costarte más dinero si es que lo alguien lo hace por ti de manera particular. Así que si te estás preguntando: ¿Todos los iPhones están desbloqueados? O ¿Se puede desbloquear un iPhone 7 o un iPhone 6S? La respuesta es sí, puedes y debes hacerlo o revisar si ya están desbloqueados por parte de tu compañía proveedora de servicios antes de que llegues a la India. Tu teléfono celular puede no funcionar aún si está desbloqueado a menos de que el ancho de banda GSM de tu teléfono móvil sea compatible.
