Important phone numbers

Using your phone in Berlin

If you are from an EU country, you can use your phone the way you use it at home: you pay the same price for calls, text messages and roaming as you would if you were at home.
If you are from a non-EU country, you will need to check with your telephone provider to see if you have the ability to use your phone and if you can send text messages while abroad. Sending texts (SMS) and making phone calls can be costly. Make sure you set your smartphone so that the data roaming is turned off.
