Sounds like it's all a bit new to you? You will NOT get THREE on Menorca, you will get a roaming partner. All roaming data (ie internet ) charges are very high while roaming unless you can get a special rate from three. Most people will use a SIM free dongle and buy a SPANISH sim ( Binipreu Supermarket 5m from Airport offer Vodafone Spain sims ) which will get you what you need for a lot less than standard roaming charges. Plus signals can be very poor, so you might have to use free WIFIs in many bars around CnB

PS you should switching off international roaming unless you know what you are doing otherwise you could get a very expensive , unexpected bill

I too will shortly be travelling in the Argentine and requiring a wifi connection. I am told it becomes very expensive to use an Australian dongle overseas. Could someone please confirm or clarify this for me?

Ravaboutflowers - you have posted this question on a European forum - I doubt anyone here has ever tried using an Australian dongle overseas so I think you would have more luck posting on an Argentinian or general travel forum
