They have 2 offers - 1 for POST PAID ONLY and one for both PRE and POST.

For prepaid:

"So ist vom 1. Juli bis 16. September die so genannte Sommeroption verf?gbar: Hier?ber k?nnen o2-Nutzer in s?mtlichen Netzen der EU-Staaten und weiterer Urlaubsl?nder zum Einheitspreis von 59 Cent pro Minute Gespr?che annehmen sowie nach Deutschland und ins jeweilige Inland telefonieren. Verf?gbar ist die Option sowohl f?r Vertrags- wie auch f?r Prepaid-Kunden, laut o2 liegt die durchschnittliche Ersparnis gegen?ber den bisherigen Kosten bei rund 60 Prozent."

From July 1 - Sept 16.... 59 e-cents / minute INBOUND and to GERMANY and to the current local country. 60% savings on average. EU and other vacation countries (not listed in article, however). NO restrictions on networks.

As you can see, your UM, 09 and other free inbounds are probably still a better deal.

It's really not a great deal, ? 0.59 for incoming calls in EU is still a robbery... and also for outgoing calls it's too much, it's better Voda Passport or also Wind's offer (0.50?/min).

I never said it was a good deal. And you are certainly correct about the robbery bit along with the passport. I was just posting news. I don't have O2 and am not intending to change. It is a another sign that providers are moving in the right direction, albeit slowly.

Of course Stan, I was not accusing you! It's good to see that some operators are lowering roaming tariffs, but it's really not enough...

apparently easyMobile UK charge 20p/minute for incoming calls - still not low enough compared to the global cards, but maybe amongst the lowest of ordinary SIMs apart from Vodafone Passport, so O2 has further to go

Wind charges ? 0.35 per minute (60/30 billing) which is not too bad... if it was 1/1 billing like before it would be acceptable... the problem is outside EU, when it becomes ? 1.50/min! :help:

E-Plus hasn't announced anything along the lines of reducing roaming charges like T-Mobile, Vodafone or O2. They did make some changes to the pricing structure of their world roaming zones according to teltarif.de.
