Hi. If I take my UK mobile (on EE) to Spain and someone from the UK rings it then is the dialling tone the same as if it was in the UK or will it have a spanish dial tone?

I met a couple who were on holiday skiing whilst he was on long term sick leave. The idiot posted his snaps on Facebook. Peeved when his boss found out and asked him to attend a medical with the company doctor

Yes - the ring tone does not change unless you change it......

What you hear through the ear when calling and its ringing comes from the network you are connected to, so yes it changes. The person you call will see your number possibly, its often not transferred to the receiving country BUT for the call recipient one can often tell when the call comes from abroad, and delays are different. If you want to hide, get an ip phone service based in your country of choice or use facetime or facebook communicator or whatsapp.
