Retaining UK mobile (number) In Serbia

Options
Hi

I am planning on living/working in Serbia for 5 months but want to retain my UK number (I will have a local SIM card for another phone).

I would only want to use my UK phone in an emergency, and send the odd text, but I do want to receive UK calls and texts with minimum cost for me.

I am currently on a contract with 3, but can end that at any time.

Any ideas of good value-for-money deals? Thanks. James

    Texts are free to receive regardless of where you are roaming. You'll pay only to receive calls.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)

    Move to PAYG if its just for emergencies?

    Therefore you'll keep your number...

    As said above, receiving texts is free, but receiving calls in Serbia to a UK number will cost you arm and leg. Expect to pay ~£1+/min.
