  • FAQ
    • Why am I charged for receiving calls?

      Customers are not charged for incoming calls while in the local network. However, customers are charged for calls received while roaming, since it will be an international call. The caller may not be aware that customer is on roaming, but the roamer has the option of accepting or declining this international call. This makes it logical for the roamer to bear the cost of receiving the call. This is the globally accepted standard for charging of incoming calls while on roaming.
