Text abroad from uk

I have a contract phone and SIM card, does this cover texting abroad (Canary islands) from the uk or is there an additional charge?

Hi @Lois3


If your text is to another UK mobile then the text will come out of your text allowance like normal with no extra cost. 



To contact EE Customer Services dial 150 From your EE mobile or 07953 966 250 from any other phone.

EE standard opening hours are 8am to 9pm weekday, 8am to 8pm on weekends.

International calls & texts to overseas nos. from UK can be rather expensive but EE has a free add-on that anyone, on PAYG or contract, can apply for to give these calls & texts at a fraction of the standard rates. See The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK .

Hi and welcome to the community, @Lois3. 🙂


I see you've been given some brilliant advice here.


If the person that you're calling is using a UK mobile, the call will come out of your allowances.


If it is an international number, I recommend following @XRaySpeX's advice for cheaper rates.

Chris 🙂
