Re: Unable to send/receive calls or texts in France

Hello there @Car4

 

Thanks for coming to the community.

 

Can you try and connect to a different network as below,

 

  • iPhone – Settings > Carrier > Toggle Automatic OFF

 

  • Android – Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Operators > Tap OK

 

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

 

Also, can you try restarting the device and now try your data.

 

Let me know how you get on.

 

Leanne.

Thanks @Car4

 

You can check your roaming status by logging into your My EE account online and go to Menu > Manage Device > Roaming Abroad > This will show as ticked if roaming is activated.

 

When logged in to your My EE account a chat option will show who can help if you need it.

 

Thanks, Leanne.

Hi Leanne - this is now beyond ridiculous, other than WiFi and being able to use WhatsApp away from WiFi my phone is utterly useless!! I do not get a live chat option and am sitting here thinking that everything I've heard about ee customer service is right.  I have tried every suggestion numerous times but nothing works. 😩😩😩

Hi @Car4

 

Do you have a UK based number with you, that can receive calls at all?

 

If so, let me know and I will send you a message for some details.

 

Thanks, Leanne.
