A guide to using your smartphone when visiting Russia

by Roam1 Telecom Limited Roaming Redifined

Known as a paradise for history buffs as much as for those who wish to indulge in authentic culture, Russia offers the best of every world. While history and culture play an important role, Russia gives you many more reasons to visit.

Russia might not be high on everyone's list of holiday destinations - but it should be. It is one of the most extraordinary countries in the world, with an almost matchless depth of cultural and historical riches, and landscapes that have inspired artists and poets for generations. For so long, Russia was out of bounds under the Soviet system and many people still think of it as difficult and inaccessible. However, we are about to tell you otherwise.

Make sure you are well-prepared to experience the best of Russia. Which means, having your accommodation booked in advance, getting your air tickets for the best deals, packing your luggage early to avoid any inconvenience, and having a Russia prepaid sim card ready. And most importantly, ensuring your smartphone is ready for the trip as well.

Here are a few points to consider that your phone is prepared for the journey as much as you. Ensuring you are able to save considerably and avoid any inconvenience.

Destination check:

It’s always wise to check if the smartphone you are carrying will be fully functional in the destination you are visiting. Cellphone companies around the globe have different technologies and work under different frequencies, and that’s good enough reason to check before leaving.

Roaming packages:

Choose from the best of roaming packages before you take off to Russia. Chances are, in the last minute, you may forget to pick a package that suits you best and end up paying a hefty price for it. Why welcome exorbitant mobile bills after you are back from a journey that has been more than memorable for you?

Locked vs unlocked:

It’s important to ensure that you have your phone unlocked to avoid roaming charges. An unlocked GSM phone allows you to use a local sim card, even when you are in a foreign land. This will result in lesser bills and savings which could be invested in the trip, but in a better way.

Turn of data (use Wi-Fi instead):

Make the most of your smartphone and its services by ensuring it is on Wi-Fi mode during the travels. Keeping it on data mode could turn out to be expensive. Also, with free availability of Wi-Fi in airports, hotels, restaurants, and every other place, it is better to stay connected throughout.
