    No it will not work over there ie the free texts that is. Texts from abroad are 20p each on o2, so you will be charged for each text sent abroad to the uk and your gf will be charged as well .

    When i went abroad the text were "discounted" against the free ones if you have any left so in my case on o2;

    Normal txt costs 10p
    Abroad txt 25p

    I paid 15p per txt

    If your gf has free txt and she is in the uk, she can still use her free txt to txt you. You will be charged to txt her back though, im not sure how much.

    I got my free texts when I was in Dubai, but it used something like 5 free texts to send one text.
