Best network for roaming?
Plan to use roaming on my own SIM for data only. (Not bothered about calls home or texts 😄) Which is better on the pocket, Sure or Manx Telecom?

Neither. You will be ripped off with heavy roaming charges whichever one you use.
Buy a local PAYG sim and use that or just stick to WiFi

The IOM is not part of the UK or EU for telecoms. Some UK networks have arranged deals but most haven't.

Vodafone message tells me that there's now no extra charges if I keep within my monthly UK contract limits.

Interesting. My partner had a message saying no roaming charges throughout Europe and few weeks ago. He's on BT Mobile.

I'm with O2 and have heard nothing. Why am I not surprised?! Will discover situation in July when over for Southern.
Everything will be alright in the end. And if it's not alright, it's not yet the end.
