After an exchange of emails with Orange "customer service" it seems that
there is another list on the Orange website of countries where you can
roam, this one supposedly more definitive, and this one doesn't list
Costa Rica.


Are you able to post a URL for this list? I would find it most useful.

No roaming in Costa Rica?

Good heavens, there's plenty of Orange-free zones in the UK, you
don't need to go to Costa Rica to be unable to make calls!

Well it isn't a list, just a stupid Javascript pull-down alphabetical
list. But it's for what it is worth it can be found he
http://studio.orange.co.uk/roaming/

I can't find the page I found initially listing Costa Rica and giving
its charge zone - maybe removed after I complained.

http:/www1.orange.co.uk/overseas lists Costa Rica in "Rest of the World
2", but that's the cost of calling from the UK, not roaming.

Some of their overseas subsidiaries list it as a roaming destination in
"Zone 5" (the most expensive).

The adoption of the "everything everywhere" brand is more than a bit
ironic. I've just returned from a trip to Costa Rica. I thought that my
orange sim in a 4-band phone would work there, as Costa Rica is was on a
list of countries with charge rates that I found on the Orange site. But
it turns out that Orange has no roaming partner there, and my phone did
not work.


What is even more bizarre is that T-mobile, with which they are supposedly
merged, does have roaming in Costa Rica. My phone works fine on a
T-mobile mast in the UK, but presumably not abroad. Definitely NOT
everything everywhere.



According to http://maps.mobileworldlive.com - Orange have roaming with
"ICE" in Costa Rica, the same as all the other UK networks. Odd.

The T-Mobile website claims voice and text coverage but no GPRS roaming.
Pretty basic, then.
