I am currently in the Philippines, I can receive texts and calls Ok.
But when I try and text back I get the message 'Unable to send message'.
It's a PAYG phone which works fine when I'm in the UK.
There is credit in the account.

@sturobinson1972: Can you make calls?

Have you checked your phone settings for call barring? You might need to call EE to remove the bar, but it shouldn't be so on PAYG, only on contract.

My Call Barring settings are Disabled for
Outgoing international roaming
When I try and change it I'm prompted for a Call Barring password.
When I enter what I think the password would be I get:
'Network or SIM card error'

That's how they should be, not barred.

Welcome to the community.
Could you try a manual network search and selecting a different network operator?
