How do set data roaming up when already in Europe?

Hi, I forgot to set up data roaming before I came to Italy and now it won’t let me text or call anyone. Had a message saying that I can use my plan as normal and checked my phone setting and data roaming is switched on! Can anyone help me?

@Gemma23: In your MyEE under Manage Device allow Roaming and Call Abroad & Premium Rate. If it won't let you you will need to call EE. Use the landline nos. in my sig.

If you think I helped please feel free to hit the "Thumbs Up" button below.

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.

Hello there @Gemma23


Thanks for coming here.


Has the advice from @XRaySpeX got your calls and texts working in Italy?


If not, can you try and connect to a network in the phone settings.


  • 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


Thanks. Leanne.
