Are you on a contract or PAYG? If on PAYG use the phone as normal & pay the charges in https://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/call-or-going-abroad/roaming-costs/countries/usa . Your usual allowances are not valid outside EU.

 

If on contract, text ROAMING to 150 before you leave to check that roaming is enabled on your a/c.

 

If on a recent Max Plan then your usual allowances are usable in US. Otherwise the charges above apply.

Good Morning @jennamehaffy.

 

Welcome to the community 🙂

 

This is brilliant advice from @XRaySpeX!

 

I echo the section about activating roaming, you can do this by texting Roaming to 150 or activate it in your My EE Account.

 

I hope you enjoy your time in the USA!
