try to restart your phone and manual network search will help you.

And dial 0044 before calling and text back to UK.

And also check here Manage your device your roaming on.

Many Thanks

Hi @Seggsy and welcome to the community.


So I can try and help, please may I get you to perform a manual network search and choose a network other than what you are on.


Please also can I get you to try and ring using format of 00447*********


Also, please let me know If you are using an EE personal or business account?


Many thanks,

Thanks guys


It seems that although I'd called to have my phone work abroad, international calls was still off! Managed to get hold of EE using a different mobile.

Thank you for your replies
