ok... checkin' the official website ( http://ec.europa.eu/information_soci...l/index_en.htm ) i can note that the EuroTariff will be surely in Reunion, French Guinea and Caraibe (the map http://www.europa.eu/abc/european_co...s/index_en.htm ).

Looking for some official websites we can note that this can be the 'official' list for EuroTariff: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Canaries, Azores, Madeira, French Guinea, Guadeloupe, French Reunion and Gibraltar.

Anyway Greenland, St. Pierre et Miquelon, St. Martin (dutch), French Polynesia etc. seem to be out...

Yes, that's right - this map clearly shows that French territories of Martinique, Guadeloupe, Guyana and Reunion are just the part of the EU as "France metro" itself .

Greenland used to be a part of EEC but left it in 1985 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland#Politics .

Well, in fact what countries are included in the "euroroaming zone" is really operator-dependent. E.g. Polish youngest operator Play has already announced the list for the zone. It contains 26 EU countries, 4 French overseas territories mentioned above, Faeroe, Gibraltar, Greenland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. UK probably covers also IoM and Channel Islands but it's not explicitly stated. Some of the above roaming countries are "virtual", however, since Play still doesn't have roaming agreement there yet. On that occasion, also international rates from Poland to the 4 French overseas EU territories are decreased to the rate for European countries.

Era has also announced the euroroaming tariff but it seems to cover nothing more than EU and it is "bundled" with large increases in many countries outside EU especially in Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Cuba .

This is probably due to the legal relationship between these islands and their European "partner country". Greenland is a country being readied for independence. Denmark is only helping them along the way. Martinique is an overseas department of France. I think if one looked at the treaties that established the EU he would find that the islands above were excluded. I find St. Pierre & Miquelon curious. I thought they had the same status as Martinique but maybe not.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Pierre_and_Miquelon says:

"Although the islands are part of the European Union, EU nationals are not allowed to exercise their Amsterdam Treaty rights to free movement and business establishment in the archipelago"

However, the number of persons travelling from or to this territory is so small, I suppose, that any roaming issues are of no practical meaning to almost everyone on this planet

OT, it's my 1000th post to the forum for the second time - the first 1000th post was a malicious comment in a spam thread which Effendi deleted .
