No signal abroad??!

EE said that I can use free calls and texts in the EU but I've arrived in Ireland and I have no service? It says I can text to set up roaming but how am I supposed to set it up if I have no signal???

Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy


Ireland is one place I have yet to tick off my bucket list!


Did you manage to get roaming up and running using live chat?


Thanks - Karen. Smiley Happy

There is also a freephone number for EE Customer Services that you can call free using Skype or another VoIP app, from a computer or your phone via WiFi - it's +44 800 956 6000 .


Other than Skype, Tesco International Calling app is another good option - when you install it on your phone it gives you £1 free credit. 0800 numbers are free from this app as well, and of course it can be used over WiFi.


One of the above options should enable you to ring through to EE over any WiFi connection (hotels, restaurants, etc.), and get your roaming activated.

Can't find what you're looking for?

One of these options may help you find the answers you need.
