What's everyone doing about their contract phones?  I'm on orange & don't want to have to make monthly payments when I won't be using it abroad.  Can I freeze it for 6 months? Anyone have any good tips?

My friend in dubai has her uk number linked with her dubai number.  I think i'll do that.  Going to get my phone unblocked so i can put a greek sim in.  I don't want to lose my 'whatsapp'.  I love it cus it lets me send voice messages, photos, videos & texts free to my friends that have the same app.  Definitely going to get a greek sim. Having a uk sim u have to pay to even receive texts & phone calls costs a fortune!  Can't believe i'm leaving 2 weeks mon!  Have to do 12 hour shifts on the sat & sun before i go.  It's going to be a killer, but will be worth it for the money.  My suitcases weigh a ton!  Gonna sling them & use a big wheeled sports bag type thing & have some stuff sent over.  I'm worrying about the weight cus i won't be flying thomson as i'm flying out of season.  It'll be like the magical mystery tour cus i'll be flying into athens first, then somewhere else ........ Can't bloody wait!!!  Big smile

If u don't get charged ur really lucky.  I'm just going by my experiences.  All my family & friends get charged for receiving texts & calls from uk when they're abroad as well.  Maybe u'v got a really good package.  I'm getting really excited! Just had my call from resort & found out about my accomm, etc. I'll be staying in falaraki.  Just waiting to find out my flight details, but know i'll be flying from heathrow Big smile

I'm glad u said that bout falaraki Leon! I'v never been there & have heard different opinions on it. Yeah, the woman who called was lovely & really helpful. I'm staying in a studio apartment on the main falaraki road. Seemingly tui have contracted a block of apartments & it will be a mixture of reps & admin in the block. Just had the e-mail. I fly out from heathrow on the morning of the 13th
