I cant call or text in Greece

I cant call or text in Greece. I am on Personal Pay Monthly. I texted ROAMING to 150 and it said I was ready to use it abroad. When I got here I got a text saying I can use all my allowances and on the first day of my holiday it worked just fine but after that I couldnt call or text I am using COSMOTE GR.

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?
