Good morning @petrina-jones


Welcome to community 🙂


Did you activate roaming before you went abroad?


If not, or you did and you are still struggling with service, then I would recommend having a quick look at our Roaming with EE - What to do if you're having problems abroad post.


Some of the hints, tricks and tips written, may just do the trick.


If not, then you do need to please get in touch with customer services, either from an alternative mobile or a landline number.
