Hello @Satmistry ,


Welcome to the community,


It is not part of your inclusive calls, you have to pay for calls outside the EU, unless you are on a Max Plan, then there are five countries included, I would suggest you take a look here:


You also do not say whether you are on pay as you go or contract and if you are whether it is a Max Plan.

Hi there @Satmistry


Welcome to the community 🙂


Hope you are having a lovely time.


Are you with us on pay as you go or pay monthly?


Can you receive calls and texts?

If on contract, did you activate roaming on your EE a/c before you left UK by texting ROAMING to 150?

Often just rebooting the phone is the simple remedy. Otherwise try logging into your MyEE account online & go to Menu / Manage Device / Roaming Abroad and also Call Abroad and Premium rate. They will show as ticked if roaming and calling abroad is activated. If they are not ticked, can you activate these settings?

PAYG is auto enabled for roaming. You don't & can't do the above.

To phone EE: The local rate landline number +44 207 362 0200 or Freephone +44 800 079 8586 - Option 1 for Mobiles; Option 2 for 4G WiFi; Option 3 for Home Broadband & EE TV.

ISPs: 1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC => 2014: EE 20 Meg WBC
