@AilieC2  Roaming is not the same as international and premium rate numbers.  One is for calling when abroad not the in the UK “Roaming”. The other is to call none UK numbers abroad and premium rate numbers.  The international and premium rate numbers are chargeable numbers that are not covered via your tariff. Activation of roaming allows you to use your tariff allowance in the EU and if you have one of the new max plans you can use your allowance in 5 other none EU destinations, this doesn’t activate international and premium rate numbers.
