I'm in Spain and calls to the UK are barred

I have an unlocked Samsung S6 and am with EE, topping up on a monthly basis.

 

At the moment I am in Spain but am unable to call UK landlines - whereas I was able to do so a couple of weeks ago. I haven't changed any phone settings or the like since then.

 

When I try to call it won't connect and it tells me that 'calls to this number is barred from your phone'.

 

Please help.

Thanks - I've tried each of the others except Orange (Moviestar, Vodafone and Yoigo) but am having the same problem. Any other suggestions?

Hi @MartinBraith

 

Thank you for coming to community 🙂

 

Can I confirm is it only UK landlines you are having difficulty calling?

 

Is it the same number or multiple?

 

Thanks
