My phone won’t work in the EU

I am abroad in France and I received the text from EE to say I could use my usual plan minutes, texts and data whilst here but I haven’t been able to use my phone for 3 days now. My data roaming is on, my carrier settings are set to choose a network automatically and my dial assist is on so i’m unsure what is going on honestly.

Hi @tyllererrinn


Welcome to the community.


You may need to check roaming is active if you have a pay monthly account, you can do this by logging into your My EE account online > go to Menu > Manage Device > Roaming Abroad and also Call Abroad and Premium Rate Calls >This will show as ticked if roaming and calling abroad is activate.


If they are not showing as ticked, can you activate these?


Hope you are having a lovely time in France 🙂
