No, not unless you have International Roaming activated on it. I believe that takes some extra charges and on prepaid you will only get limited roaming facility like text msgs and incoming calls only. Its better to buy another sim card from a provider in Nepal.

Hi...

Look at the above post... The SIM would work subject to you having international roaming activated...

Folks, this is globalization.. u are travelling in advanced way.

Let me clear you ...It has to work in Nepal, not only nepal in some of asian countires and Middle east countries there wide range of roaming facilities available almost on all prepaid cards. There is no pre activation required on your prepaid, but check you have tie up with any one of your international (Except Airtel) provider.

In UAE AIrtel and Idea have tie up and almost Airtel has coverage the globe but for certain kind of period, later u need to follow thier instructions.

Using GPRS abroad while roaming is very expensive and certainly not low cost. If you want to use internet, get a Nepal SIM card and buy a prepaid internet plan.
