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?

Thank you for contacting Cricket, when traveling outside of U.S, Canada and Mexico our service will not work. The only way you can use your device will be by connecting to Wi-Fi or choosing a provider in the UK for service.

Sorry so not tech savvy... Does this mean that when there is WiFi service that I will be able to go on Facebook and that I will be able to make Facebook and WhatsApp phonecalls please?

Good afternoon! I have never been to the UK, but I have visited my old homeland of the Russian Federation twice. You may not believe me, but with the help of the site I currently want to get Russian citizenship again. Do you think homesickness is good? I think it's great.
