The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK

International Calls & Texts From the UK

 

Making International calls & texts from the UK are always chargeable & are not included in any allowances. Some might mistakenly believe that they count towards roaming allowances but when in the UK you are not roaming.

 

International calls & texts can be rather expensive but EE has a free add-on that anyone, on PAYG or contract, can apply for to give these calls & texts at a fraction of the standard rates. To do so just text CALL ABROAD to 150. It will then last forever on your account.

 

However it has recently become almost impossible to find out these CALL ABROAD rates from searching the EE website Help pages. For that reason I have decided to publish them here, as follows.

Thanks @XRaySpeX, great post.

 

@Damienw1 You won’t get an answer to that as I’ve asked multiple times and never got an answer.  Another one of those hard questions EE won’t answer!

Re: The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK

Good morning,

@XRaySpeX, where are costs for sending text messages on the payg list? you provided.

I don't often call abroad, but do send load's of text, because it's faster and more convenient!! 😊

@Profile closed: It's under the 4th column of the table labelled "Text". It's 10p / text to any country.
