USA mobile operators no longer support 2G or 3G service. As a result, traditional voice services are no longer available while traveling in the USA. However, users will be able to use Over-the-Top (OTT) apps such as WhatsApp, Facetime, Skype, etc.
When traveling to the USA, make sure to travel with an LTE and/or 5G compatible device, activate Data Roaming and change your Network Mode in your phone settings: Android: Settings -> Connections -> Mobile Networks -> Data Roaming ON and set your Network Mode to 5G/LTE/3G/2G (auto connect) iOS: Settings -> Mobile Data -> Mobile Data Options -> Data Roaming ON and set Voice & Data to LTE.
Traditional 911 emergency services while in the USA may not be available or fully functional due to their changes.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we assure you that TelEm Group will continue all its efforts to ensure that our customers can have a seamless roaming experience.
