Planning to use your phone in Croatia? Find out more about the sim card
The three mobile phone networks in Croatia are VIP ( www.vipnet.hr ), T-Com (www.hrvatskitelekom.hr) and Tele2 (www.tele2.hr).
You also might find Tomato and BonBon, although both of these are owned by one of the main mobile companies, and not really separate networks in their own right.
If you already own a phone, you can buy just the new SIM card. Remember that your phone might need to be unlocked first – even if you’ve used the same mobile provider in your home country as in Croatia. For example, if you have a T-Mobile phone from another country, it might not work with a Croatian T-Mobile phone.
Once you buy your SIM card, ask the clerk to insert it, set it up, and make a test call to be sure it’s working properly. Turning on the phone, you’ll be prompted to enter the SIM PIN, which you may be asked to enter every time you start up the phone. If text or voice prompts are in another language, ask the clerk whether they can be switched to English.
On the 15th June 2017, EU mobile roaming charges were scrapped meaning any calls you make, texts you send and data you use comes out of your normal monthly allowance – just as if you were at home.You call your home mobile phone operator before travelling to make sure that roaming is enabled.
