I will be traveling overseas to London later this month and will have my Galaxy S8 with me. What, if anything, will still work while I am in the UK? Specifically, will I be able to make phone calls, send/receive text messages via roaming cell network? What about via wireless internet? Will I at least still be able to access the internet, or does my phone essentially become a brick outside the US, Canada, and Mexico?

Any thoughts?

Cricket does not offer any roaming or service in London or UK, so you won’t have any type of service with your Cricket SIM. Of course, if you are in an area with WiFi, you may be able to make calls through whatsapp, and have internet access.


I would recommend you to get a prepaid SIM from any of the carriers in London if you want to have service and if your phone is unlocked.


cdexter, thank you!
