International Roaming - specifically China
Hi all - I am heading off to China next week (next Sunday) for 10 days. I am looking at potential sim card options whilst I am there to allow me to call back home here in Australia. First time for me traveling to China and wondered if anyone knew of some good deals or options better than me just going with my current providers (Telstra) $10/day International Day Pass? which will cost me $100 for the duration of my stay.
I had a live chat with a Telstra rep today and even though I can't see it anywhere on their terms and conditions section, the rep told me that the unlimited calls/SMS are for calls only made to Telstra numbers back home in Australia?! Also - if someone was to try ring me whilst I was in China, it would be considered an international call and whoever calling me would be charged international rates without them possibly knowing it?! That just didn't seem fair to me.
Ultimately, I am just looking to have enough data to upload pictures and use social media and be able to make calls back here in Australia and allow my wife to call me, without being considered as an international call, if that makes sense.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
