Why can't Virgin follow Optus's lead and introduce a $5 a day Global Roaming Charge? It would make it so much easier to use, as we will know the costs, prior to going away. I think you would also benefit as more people would use the service, as most are worried about ending up with a massive bill, when the return to Australia, so they but overseas SIM cards in each country they visit.
Thanks Zoe, but the Optus $5 plan also allows you to keep the phone turned on 24/7 and lets you use your phone for calls. Virgin does not, to the best of my knowledge. I recently went to China and had a large billm from Virgin on my return.
