I’m going to China in July, can I use my phone there?

Hi there, I’m a Sec. School student who is travelling to China in July, and I was just needing to enquire about whether or not I can use my phone there at no extra cost or not, as I’m aware that you can in some countries but not others (I’ve used mine in Spain, Croatia, etc.). I’m an EE customer and have been for the best part of 4 years, and would prefer to be able to take all of my extras that I’ve acquired over the years too, rather than have to do two weeks on a new sim on a company with which I can use my phone in China. If not, is there some kind of pre-paid option that I can follow for the fortnight in question? Many thanks, and 谢谢 as Chinese people would say 😊

Your mobile phone will work there but it will cost you, as set out in https://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/call-or-going-abroad/roaming-costs/countries/china .

 

Remember to text ROAMING to 150 before you leave to check roaming is enabled on your account.
