How do I use my data pack while in Iceland?

Hey, I'm on holiday in Iceland for a week and a bit and would like to use my phones data package while here. I got a text saying that it was possible, but also a notification saying that I can't since I had my mobile data turned off when I left my home (country I assume) I've been disconnected. Since I traveled on plane and put my phone into airplane mode I couldn't really keep it on.

 

So how do I reconnect? I tried going into settings/SIM and network/sim1/network operators but I can't find EE in the list.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I think I just figured it, I didn't have data roaming activated. 😒 First time using this phone abroad.

As you do in UK.

 

Make sure Mobile Data is ON & Flight Mode OFF.

 

EE doesn't run a network abroad. It uses one of its roaming partners. Find a local Network Operator you can connect to.

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.

ISPs: 1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC => 2014: EE 20 Meg WBC
