Data use when abroad
The use of data when abroad is not included in your prepaid data bundle. When you are abroad you are not using SETAR’s network, but the network of another international provider. Every time you Whatsapp, e-mail, use Facebook or any other Internet action, you are charged by the provider at your destination. This could incur significant charges. SETAR provides you with a variety of options to reduce data roaming expenses.
Whenever available, use Wi-Fi.
Be careful when streaming or sending video’s to social media sites or contacts.
Switch off automatic updates and synchronization on your phone.
Download an app to monitor your data usage. iPhone users can go to their general phone settings, press usage and then cellular usage. Android users can download My Data Manager from the Google Play Store.
If you want to switch off data roaming on your mobile phone, call *123#. This will de-activate all data traffic on your phone.
