Did you activate roaming on your MyEE a/c before you left? Presumably not. Having a roaming allowance does not auto enable it. You may still be able to in your online a/c under Manage Devices. If not, you will need to call EE. Use the landline nos. in my sig.

It depends on which max plan you are on. Plans take out after the 10th May include free roaming in Australia, if before then you will need an bolt on.

Thank you for coming to see us in the EE community all the way from Austrailia.
Apart from the phone problem you are having, I hope you are having a nice vacation and the sun is shining.
When you are preparing for your trip abroad, it is essential that roaming is activated before you go away.
In order to do this, all the information/set-up instructions can be found in our EE roaming - Getting ready to use your phone abroad support article.
I know on this occasion, you were aware that you needed to do this. I know it's not working at the moment for you.
However, we can help.
Please take a look at some of the hints, tips and tricks to get activated in our Roaming with EE - What to do if you're having problems abroad support article.
If none of the advice in the support article works, you may have an international bar present.
This will need account access at this point.
If you are a pay monthly personal EE customer, then log in to My EE and await a chat with an online advisor.
If you can't access this, then please call customer services from an alternative landline or mobile.
Please let me know how you get on.
