The prices for SMS roaming have been stable for two years at 11 cents net (a good 13 cents with taxes). However, customers have to be careful that they actually use the EU tariff when they are abroad, warns Rafaela Möhl from the consumer portal Teltarif. Often other options are preset.

Day passes can save money

Much more exciting, however, is the development of data roaming tariffs, also with the ever increasing use of smartphones. A lot has happened here. It is true that roaming charges of 20 euros per megabyte can still be high. But the mobile phone providers, with the EU Commission behind their necks, introduced day and week passes one after the other, with which consumers can keep costs under control. At Vodafone, for example, you can get it for 2 euros "Travel Package Data EuropaPlus" a day pass with an inclusive volume of 25 megabytes in 15 EU countries. For 3 euros more, access runs for a week with 50 megabytes of data. In other European countries, access is a bit more expensive: a day pass for 5 euros only grants 5 megabytes of data, the weekly pass 25 MB for 10 euros. Outside Europe, customers have to shell out 15 euros for a 5 MB day pass.

10 megabyte internet package from 1.95 euros

Deutsche Telekom offers im "DayPass Europe S" for 1.95 euros a data volume of 10 megabytes, and in the "L."-Version 50 MB for 4.95 euros. In any case, however, consumers must ensure that they actually surf the Internet with a day pass – and not pay the normal roaming charges of several euros per megabyte, emphasizes Möhl.

There is an important difference between the T-Mobile and Vodafone data passes. With Vodafone, the connection simply breaks off when the time has expired or the inclusive volume has been reached. At Telekom, if the intended volume is exceeded, 4.9 cents per 100 kilobyte data block or part thereof are due. The amount of a possible data roaming bill is limited in any case: The EU Commission obliges all providers to warn consumers when the sum of just under 60 euros is reached and to only connect them after express confirmation.

Look for local alternatives

Prices will continue to be depressed in the coming year. Just in time for the 2012 summer vacation season, according to the EU Commission’s plan, each outgoing call per minute should cost a maximum of 32 cents (plus VAT), from 2014 only 24 cents. Incoming calls will cost a maximum of 10 cents per minute in the future, as will SMS messages sent.

In addition, the Commission wants to cap data roaming prices in the coming year. According to current information, the use of mobile Internet in other EU countries from summer 2012 will cost a maximum of 90 cents (plus VAT) per megabyte. By 2014, the maximum prices are then to be reduced to 50 cents per megabyte. The previous regulation will expire at the end of 2012. The commission wants to extend it until 2016.

If the current roaming tariffs are too high for you, you can still try to find a cheaper solution with local prepaid providers. To do this, however, the cell phone or smartphone must be able to accept SIM cards from other providers, which is not the case with subsidized models with Sim-Lock or Net-Lock.

A new battery problem is currently irritating many iPhone and iPad users: Under the new iOS 11.4 operating system, the battery apparently weakens when the iPhone is connected to the WLAN. 

The update to the new iOS version 11.4 seems to have a battery problem: Many users are surprised at the shortened battery life, even though they have hardly used the smartphone. Report loudly in the Apple support forum alone "" about 2,200 people affected by the problem. Even in standby mode, the battery discharges noticeably quickly. In some cases it was virtually empty overnight.

It is believed that the problem has to do with certain WiFi connections. The connection to a 5 GHz radio network seems to overload the processor. The smartphone heats up noticeably. Older Apple devices such as the iPhone 6, 6s and 7 seem to be particularly affected by this.

It is unclear what exactly is causing these problems and how many people are affected. However, it can be fixed by switching to another radio frequency band. In some cases, it may also help to reset the network settings and enter the WiFi password again.

With the latest update, WhatsApp can now also send documents in PDF format. A new menu item offers the appropriate selection. However, the new function seems a bit stubborn here and there.

Since the update to WhatsApp version 2.12.14 for iOS and 2.12.496 for Android, the popular messaging app offers a new function for sending documents. The user can first select the source in the corresponding dialog. In addition to the Google Drive and Apple iCloud cloud services, it also includes Dropbox and others.

As soon as the source is selected, the corresponding documents can be sent via WhatsApp. However, only if the recipient has also installed the latest WhatsApp version with this function.

So far only PDF files

Users of the new function can also send PDF files in group chats and thus reach several contacts at the same time. Other file types cannot yet be sent. WhatsApp should improve this soon, so that other document formats can then also be transferred.

WhatsApp Web does not currently offer this function, although the file selection from the computer’s drive would be easy to implement here.

Some iOS users complain that the app sometimes crashes when using this feature. It is unclear whether this is related to the many malfunction reports and failures on Tuesday.

Consider data volume

WhatsApp users should keep one thing in mind, especially if they want to send very large PDF files. The transfer via cellular network may eat away at the data volume of a cellular phone contract. Even with the recipient.

Apple also set up an electronic condolence book. Fans could send condolences messages at The board later added in a message: "Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy have been the source of the innumerable innovations that have enriched and improved our lives.

Obama pays tribute to Steve Jobs

US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle showed up "saddened" about the news of death. A White House announcement said Jobs was one of America’s greatest inventors. By building one of the most successful companies on the planet out of his garage, he has shown the spirit of American ingenuity in an exemplary manner. "The world has lost a visionary"said the president’s statement.

In 2004 Jobs had to be treated for cancer, in 2009 he got a new liver. Again and again he had to take time off from the busy day-to-day business and only appeared sporadically in public. Since January he has largely left the business to his confidante Tim Cook, who was therefore considered the Crown Prince.
