Unlocking I phone 8 to make calls in the USA 🇺🇸

Please can some advise! In the USA any calls I try to make are restricted. I can txt msg browse over WiFi I have WiFi calling but the phone I’m trying to connect to just takes calls. I have tried all my phone settings and as a last resort am wondering if there’s something I need to do in settings to unlock it! I cannot call EE but can only msg to which they are not replying! Super infuriating. Thanks 🤠

Good Afternoon @Kboogie


Thanks for coming to the community.


If you log into your My EE account online, then go to Menu > Manage Device > Call Abroad and Premium Rate > This will need to show as ticked for you to make calls and send texts when roaming.


Let me know how you get on 🙂
