Re: I can receive but NOT send texts to Canada

Are you on contract or PAYG? If on PAYG, do you have enough credit to pay for these texts

to a non-UK no. from the UK. They are not covered by your Pack. You are not roaming when you do so. They count as International texts & are chargeable.


International calls & texts to overseas nos. from UK 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. See The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK .

To phone EE: The local rate landline number +44 207 362 0200 or Freephone +44 800 079 8586 - Option 1 for Mobiles; Option 2 for 4G WiFi; Option 3 for Home Broadband & EE TV.
