You have 1 new MMS. You have 90 rubles!
Telecom operators seem to specifically try to scare away subscribers from using smartphones outside their home region, as well as push them to buy local SIM cards and use third-party services like Whatsapp or Viber. Most subscribers already know that roaming does not bode well in terms of communication costs, except in rare cases .
Recently, Megafon recalled that in roaming even receiving (!) 1 MMS outside the home region can cost a subscriber from 3 to 90 rubles, depending on the country of residence. Be careful!
