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:

  1. Ensure international roaming is turned on
  2. Top up your prepaid plan with a $15 Bolt-On
    (If you joined Boost before 12 July 2016 and have not changed your offer you will 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.
