Does Northern Ireland count as abroad?

Does phoning a mobile in Northern Ireland count as abroad? Obviously it’s part of the UK, but just want to be sure I don’t get charged extra.

Nope. Check the coverage maps for the major Telcos and you'll see NI is included.

Nope, North Ireland is part of UK and should be charged at regular UK rates.

As long as you call 01,02,03 and 07 phone numbers you have to be charged your agreed rate regardless where it actually located.

As above, nope, it's just the same as UK charges.

I'll just make a little point, being Northern Irish myself. When you're in a town near the border, sometimes your phone roams to the Southern Irish networks. That would be the only time you'd be charged extra, but I don't think the chances of it are particularly high.
