Hello @Jamiewales the account holder can log in to their MYEE account online and navigate to MYEE>manage device to check if roaming is enabled on the account. Live Chat can be accessed using one of these ways. :):

Good morning @Jamiewales


Thanks for coming to see us in community 🙂


Can I confirm if he has checked to see if Dial Assist is activated?


He needs to go into 


Settings >>> Phone >>> Dial Assist


Please make sure the toggle is set to ON.


If that doesn't help,  your father in law will need to please get in touch with customer services via an alternative mobile or a landline number.


Good luck and please keep us posted.
