Essay northern ireland



By Ireland they mean the Republic, why would they bother to specify Northern Ireland within the UK, I'm sure they don't give different prices for Scotland, England, Wales.
You can use your free minutes, because it's within the UK. When you buy an Orange contract here, it's no different from the mainland. When you walk over the border, the network switches and then you'd be charged. Northern Ireland really is the same as calling someone down the street.

you answered your own question there! NI is part of the UK so when you look at the guide the UK price includes NI! believe me! Ireland means southern Ireland not the whole of Ireland as Northern Ireland is called Northern Ireland not Ireland.

I am from NI and when I go to the south of ireland I change networks. it is a different country. when I go to England, Scotland or Wales nothing happens. I pay the same amount as I do at home.

This is poor advice and incredibly ignorant.

YES it's in your bloody minutes. Is calling Wales included in your minutes? Yes. Scotland? Yes. So why the hell wouldn't NI be included as well?

I agree completely! I love that we both get extremely pis*ed off and determined to correct this asap!lol

Thanks Sparkles and Emmerald. So sorry to have wound you up!

Nobody cares about your *****ing table. NORTHERN IRELAND IS NOT THE SAME AS IRELAND, IT IS WITHIN THE UK SO FALLS UNDER THE UK PRICE. when like 3 people from Northern Ireland have posted, can you not just accept you were wrong?

ps. don't worry dreamqueen, the problem is not with you.

Just be careful not to get too close to the border, because it's all to do with the nearest phone mast thingy.

The UK isn't in that table because the table is for calling abroad? Since the UK is not abroad, it's obviously not in that section.
Also, about the border thing, where in NI does your friend live? It is highly unlikely they live where they are going to be picking up Irish reception.

What I meant was does SpikeyMike see the word UK. UK includes England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, so therefore since it's considered part of the UK no extra charges would occur. As highlight by others throughout this thread.

There's no handovers accross the border so you would know before you made the call. The roaming network would send you a message.

The mobile will always give preference to it's own network not the nearest mast.

haha! this is hilarious! if you lived in northern ireland you'd realise how annoying this sort of thing is.

On the subject of annoying things. Does anyone else find it annoying that on like, newsround etc, every time they cover anything about Northern Ireland they have to spend about 10minutes first explaining the political history and the fact it's actually part of the UK, before they even get to the story.

I should hope so! But I wouldn't put it past Orange based on my experiences with the bastards.

I've never been to Northern Ireland, but I read this a few months ago. http://en.wikipediawiki/Republi. oaming_charges
