What is Roaming?
Roaming is an opportunity to travel abroad with your cell phone and always being available to be called with your own phone number. People may do not know that you are out of country and dialing your number as usual they always are able to reach you by calling the same phone number.
Enabling/disabling Roaming rules
Before departure, make sure that a country you are leaving for, has Roaming service. On arrival, switch on your cell phone and it would automatically get registered in a network which has roaming service. In the event if your cell phone is not automatically registered in such country, choose available network manually (look up your phone manual).
The service Roaming automatically activates if in your balance is more than 137,5 somoni and deactivates if in your balance is less than 137,5 somoni. It is recommended to have one's account balance with no less than 200 Somoni in order to avoid prompt deactivation of roaming service taking into account high-cost roaming networks.
- Deactivation of Roaming service: *2004*120#
- Activation of Roaming service: *2004*121#
- Service status verification: *2004*12*#
Incoming calls, forwarded due to enabled conditional forwarding function while in Roaming, sometimes are double charged as outgoing calls in Roaming. That’s why we recommend to disable all forwarding functions before your departure abroad, particularly the function of call forwarding to Voice mail, for prevention of any unanticipated extra charges.
