We've prepared some useful tips to help improve your roaming experience.
- We strongly recommend that Postpaid customers request a temporary Credit Limit increase to avoid becoming Credit Limit Barred.
- Not temporarily increasing the Credit Limit, could result in Postpaid customers having their service suspended, if their usage exceeds their assigned credit limit.
- Should a Postpaid customer choose to increase their credit limit, the regular process for a Credit Limit increase will apply.

- Avoid unnecessary calls while roaming. Let your callers know that you are abroad.
- Avoid unexpected data charges by switching off mobile data. If mobile data is switched on whilst you're connected to Wi-Fi, your phone could switch over to using mobile data if the Wi-Fi signal is weak. When this happens, data charges as per roaming rates would apply.

- Remember to enter phone numbers according to the dialing pattern of the country or city you are in. To make things easier, store numbers in the international format. For example, for numbers in the USA, save the contact as +147956323333.
