USING YOUR PHONE OVERSEAS
International roaming is active on all Boost accounts (unless you have previously turned it off by contacting customer support). This means you can receive SMS while overseas.
To make or receive calls or send SMS while overseas, you’ll need to:
- Ensure international roaming is turned on
- Top up your prepaid plan with a $5 Add-On
(If you joined Boost between 12 July 2016-31 October 2017 and have not changed your offer you’ll need a $15 Bolt-On. If you joined before 12 July 2016 you’ll need a $10 Add-On)
Roaming is available in most countries commonly visited from Australia. International roaming rates are higher than rates within Australia. Check call rates for the country you’re visiting here.
