I’m from Malaysia and I got accepted into a USA University to do my business degree. It’s an exciting time, new horizons and experiences all await me! But I am leaving behind my family and friends and I do miss them while I am away. My friends and I use Facebook to keep in touch, but for mum and dad it’s a bit harder. Although I have a USA number now, they like calling me on my Malaysian number because its cheaper and more familiar to them. So I started using MobiRoam so they can keep doing just that.
Before I leave home, I just put my Malaysian SIM card in the SmartBox and my MobiRoam app allows me full access to calling and texting while I am away. My mum just calls me on my normal mobile number, and I answer even when I am in the USA or anywhere. And I can surprise her with a call to her mobile too and because I am using my normal Malaysian number, she knows the call is from me. It’s magic! But sometimes I just wish mum would remember that there is a 16 hour time difference between KL and LA.
