Going abroad this summer and don’t want to spend a fortune on roaming charges? Go get the Roamer app for iOS or Android and you can save up to 90% on roaming charges.

Planning a trip abroad this summer? That’s great, it’s always nice to go on vacation and visit interesting places. But what if you need to call someone back home or if someone back home needs to call you? Your parents, your close friends, your boss, or a potential customer may want to get in touch with you while you’re abroad. And that will translate into high roaming charges. You can avoid spending a ton on roaming by using the free Roamer app for iOS and Android.

Setting up Roamer is a very simple 3-step process:


Step 1 – Get Roamer Up and Running
The first thing you need to do is Install Roamer on your mobile device. Go get the app for free from Apple’s App Store if you have an iPhone and go get it from Google’s Play Store if you’re an Android user. The app is offered for free.

Step 2 – Before You Go Abroad, Park Your Number
Before leaving for the UK, Spain, France, or any other destination, launch the Roamer app and use it to park your number. When your number is parked, all calls to your number will be redirected to the Roamer service number.

Step 3 – When You Get Abroad, Buy a Local SIM Card
Go purchase a SIM card from a local dealer, put it in your device, and use the Roamer app to link your number to the foreign SIM card. All calls to your number will be redirected to the Roamer service number, as mentioned above; and then they will be forwarded to your foreign SIM card.

This means that people back home can call your number and reach you when you’re abroad. And you can use Roamer to call back home a lot cheaper than using roaming. According to the developer, you can save up to 90% on roaming rates.

“Roamer is an app that lets you drastically reduce roaming costs (by up to 90%) when travelling and keep your usual phone number for incoming and outgoing calls. In other words, Roamer links your mobile number to any foreign SIM card, either newly bought in the destination country or saved from the previous trip there. We use GSM to connect calls (not WiFi or 3G), thus offering excellent call quality irrespective of the internet connection speed in the area,” says the developer in the Roamer FAQ.

Additional information on Roamer is available on it official website.
