Can't send texts in Croatia - help!

I'm an ee pay as you go customer using an iPhone 4 I have added credit I have turned data roaming on on my phone. I have received a text telling me I can use my phone here but I can't send texts - I find the 'help' really difficult to find on ee - there doesn't seem to be a live chat button anywhere on my account page?

There is no live chat for PAYG. 


Try turning off imessage under settings. Also try resetting your network settings.

Hi @Damyon.


I hope you're having a brilliant time in Croatia despite this phone problem, it's a beautiful part of the world. 🙂


Please try the troubleshooting steps below and let me know how you get on:-


Try re-booting your device


Try turning 4G off in ‘settings’


Perform a manual network search:-


  • iPhone – Settings > Carrier > Toggle Automatic OFF

  • Windows – Settings > Mobile Network > Network Selection > Tap on start manual search


Look forward to hearing from you.
