If you contemplating taking a trip abroad and would like to use an international cellular phone rental, UK is an ideal place to go. The United Kingdom offers many different service providers for international cellular phones. Also, the mobile phones that are available for rental in the United Kingdom work in many of the countries throughout Europe and Western Asia.
It is a fact that nearly anytime you purchase an international phone rental, UK will be the base of the phone service provider. Nearly every international phone that is either rented or purchased, at least in the European and West Asian region, has a phone number from the United Kingdom. Because of this fact, phone calls from places within the United Kingdom, such as London, to an international cell phone do not cost anything for the person placing the call. This means that this is very convenient for you if your trip is based solely in the United Kingdom. The call does, depending on your service provider, still subtract from the phone user’s airtime allotment. This is not true for any phones whose service providers allow for free incoming calls.
International cell phone rentals come with all of the bells and whistles of ordinary cell phones. These bells and whistles include features such as voice mail, call waiting, call forwarding, and text messaging. The text messaging option is one though that does depend on the service provider that you choose. Some service providers of international cell phones allow you to send and receive so many text messages as part of your package or plan. Other service providers allow you to receive text messages as part of your plan without being able to send them. Still other service providers require that you pay an additional fee to either send of receive any text messages.
