Over the next few weeks for the 2010 World Cup it’s been estimated that as many as 25,000 football fans from the England & 10’s of thousands from around the world will be going off to South Africa.

The Rebel Simcard Team have made a guide  How Not to not get mobbed by Roaming Charges while travelling and created some special Deals on some clever products that can help you Beat the Networks at thier own Game game with a little bit of Know how.

If you’re one of those preparing to make to make the trip, a few preparations before you go will ensure that your main memory of the tournament isn’t an unexpected mobile phone bill that you will be receiving up on returning.

So Dont go packing your bags before reading and understand all the options you have to save yourself Burning Money while on holiday.

It’s been estimated that fans travelling to the World Cup could spend hundreds of pounds calling, texting and uploading pictures from their mobiles.

Very important and mostly over looked is the Fact the travellers forget to turn of their Voice mail in the sim they are roaming with and can end up with £100’s of charges simply but not answering their phones. When you are roaming and you dont answer then the call is sent to your voice mail system and full roaming charges apply as if you were making a call so beware.

You see these charges for the UK mobile network in the List at the end of the page. You will see that its not cheap at all and they are planning to make huge profits from you.

Although international roaming call charges in the EU have fallen, roaming charges in countries like South Africa averaging £1/minute for making and receiving calls make a big hole in your pockets in no time at all.

Once in South Africa it may be cheaper to buy a local SIM card which you can put in your unlocked handset and used to dial numbers in that country and use call back services to call back Home.

SIM cards can be bought at many retail outlets including mobile phone shops, supermarkets and grocery stores or online from rebel simcard or solutions point websites.

If you want to upload pictures and videos from the match to the internet, then it may be cheaper to use a computer at an internet café or at your hotel rather than use your phone as the prices for MMS is not cheap at all and averaged around £0.75 each to send if your roaming and is much cheaper with a local simcard for South Africa

Most international hotels have wireless connections either in guest rooms, business centres or some restaurants, and internet cafes can also be found throughout the country but if you want to take your own wireless unlocked dongle or Mifi router you will have much more flexibility.

If you are going to use the web while away then avoid using public terminals – such as internet cafes – for online banking. Also, remember that wireless connections usually not using Latest firmwares in thier wireless routers with WEP2 standards and use the older crackable ones so your data is not safe and can be viewed by others.
