Hi there!

 

I have two questions:

 

1) What if i left my home sim card plugged in (in another phone, for example) after crossing the border - would operator start charging me with roaming rates for forwarding? I just want to save my ability to receive texts.

 

2) I`m traveling a lot from Russia to Latvia and back -- is it a working scheme if i use only two sim cards and set roamer for latvian number when in russia and set it for russian number when in latvia?

Hi!

 

If it's inserted in another phone and you are not making calls from it, then operator won't charge you, and it's safe to receive SMS. As for travelling between countries, it's a bit tricky - when arriving to Latvia, you need to turn off "Receive calls abroad" first, then change your home number in Roamer Settings to Russian, insert Russian SIM card, enable "Receive calls when abroad", then insert Latvian SIM card and enable "Local SIM" switch. Travlling to Russia then, it is similar, but change to Latvian number using the same procedure.
