Re: Roaming in Germany?!

Having the exact same issue. Can't text or phone. Need help asap! Have no means of communication without WiFi or 4G which isn't practical.

@S106R: Did you activate roaming on your EE a/c before you left UK?


Try logging into your My EE account online & go to Menu / Manage Device / Roaming Abroad and also Call Abroad and Premium rate. They will show as ticked if roaming and calling abroad is activated. If they are not ticked, can you activate these settings?

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.

Hi @S106R.


In addition to the questions from @XRaySpeX, is there anyone else with you on EE?


Have you tried manually searching for a network in Germany?
