Default Roaming in Moldova and PMR - 17-12-2007, 22:11

Does anyone has any real experience roaming in Moldova using any of major international free-roaming SIM. Particularly, I am interested in roaming in breakaway Pridnestrovije. Likely to be in Tiraspol and Bendery. I know it would work with local provided who is using CDMA, but I believe in should pick up signal from Moldovan operators anyway.

I have been to Moldova many times. I know of no international that works in Moldova. I have never heard of any CDMA carrier there. I know that Hop does work there. That is why I have a local sim card there.

IDC operates a CDMA 450/800 1x-EvDO network along the western border with Ukraine.

As for international SIM cards, United Mobile claims coverage with both products (+44 and +423). GSM coverage seems to be quite good in the Tiraspol area.

There's no Vodafone in Moldova, I guess you meant Orange
I think both Orange and Moldcell cover Tiraspol' and you should have no big problems with a local sim-card, or also with UM or Travelsim (which roams on both the operators).

Of course I meant Orange. Sorry for my mistake. I have corrected it already.

MaxRoam and CelTrek cover Moldova. CelTrek's rates are 29 incoming, 42 outgoing to U.S.

...mike


Make use of T-M's UMA/wifi free calling from any place in the world with access to wifi. I use an LG G6, wife an S7)
A/o Oct 20, 2013 no need for intl prepaid as T-Mobile U.S. includes voice roaming at 20/min (in and out)., unlimited text (in and out), and unlimited data in 140+ countries.

My Plan -[6 lines] U.S. T-Mobile unlimited minutes (incoming and outgoing), unlimited text, fast data on each line. that $145/mo. total! . (In U.S. no surcharge for calling a cell.) If a line exceeds 2G of data in a month, pay $10 more for that line. [That only happens a couple times/year.

For those who are interested:
Moldcell and Orange have both coverage in Bendery and Tiraspol. But Moldcell much better one. You cant dial PMR numbers from Moldova GSM number.

Hello,

isn't PMR jamming Moldavian GSM-signals? I heard that even in Chişinău, GSM connections are quite interfered by Transnistrian jammers. Prepaid-Users in Chişinău got free load from their operators, because calls/connections are cut frequently because of jamming from Transnistria. But indeed very interesting, that Moldavian GSM signals still reach Tiraspol (and that they are not jammed there).

Regards,
Klaus
