I copied these comments and started this new thread to avoid derailing Ryder's post!
I also deleted the OFF Topic comments over there but left them here.... for continuity!



Receiving a telephone call from Abroad in Russia or a text you are charged and obviously the girl doesn't want to pay for it, which is justifiable.

On the other hand why you don't try to speak to her on Skype?

Her English is very good..........as about her answers on Face book.....you know better.

I know you are a young man so if she doesn't show any interest.... plenty of fish in the sea!

Play by ear as they say!

BTW [welcome1.gif] to the board AND HERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE who can help with whatever questions you need answers.

Good luck.

Yannis

Ok give's us another lecture of your wisdom and knowledge....... [tonque.gif]

PS: Beeline is charging anywhere in Russia for receiving calls.... but MTC you can have a local SIM card and not pay for receiving calls and texts. I have one for UFA but in Moscow I am charged! [tonque.gif]

Wow, I didn't know that part. In Denmark, as far as I know, you don't get charged for international calls. It's only the caller that gets charged..

The time that you were charged for incoming calls in Russia has long past...

As for facebook, first of all you should find maybe a little more "private" way of conversation.. not sure where the facebook chat ends up.
Now for her answers, you know her spoken English is OK, but what about her written English ? Perhaps it would be interesting to ask if she can write or is using some translating software..

Well

I know I haven't been to Russia lately, preferring travelling to more European countries...... but you forget that I was there last June....... and Beeline was charging me... so I bought the MTC card instead!......... Later I will talk to my sister in Law and I will check it again!

[offtopic.jpg]
Sparky.... tell me who are your friends to tell you who you are! [tonque.gif]

My wife was looking some photos in a Restaurant from last weekend and earlier...... so I hope you will not become a grumpy old man too!

well the only thing i have heard that in some "oblasts" the mobile owners still charge but i can guarantee that in Moscow and down south they do not charge.

Wiz are you in Europe or Asia when you visit?

Yes and i guess like you he is very different off the boards than on, and needless to say Veta does a very good job of keeping him under control (probably like most of us guys if the truth be known) [rolf.gif]

Sorry to de -rail your thread Ryder [hi.gif]

Welcome to the forum [hi.gif]

One thing if you carry on dating ladies from the FSU is that you will know if they are into you [glad.gif] then they will give you their constant attention and you will not be in any doubt [biggrin.gif]

[offtopic.jpg]

This is my post 99 what happens next [read.gif] (in need of a worried and shaking smiley here wiz)

Ryder,
Image to the board.

Using a mobile phone in Russia.

Stay in the region that is allocated by your provider and to receive calls is free.

Move out of your region and you pay internal roaming charges.

Use a Sakhalin sim card within the region allocated and it is free to receive calls and txt messages.

Use a Sakhalin sim card in Moscow and you will pay.
Use a Sochi sim in Moscow and or Sakhalin and you will pay.

This applies to all mobile telephone providers.

The above is fact.
Image


Ryder, if you are really interested in this "girl" then try to ask her which method of communication she prefers.
