Re: Using phone in USA

@Sam1991: Do you have an EE Max Plan? If so, you may use your allowances there. Otherwise you will need to pay the prices in https://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/call-or-going-abroad/roaming-costs/countries/usa .

 

If you are on contract, remember to text ROAMING to 150 before you leave to check roaming is enabled on your account.

No I’m just on the 4g plan, is it really nearly £5 a day to use data abroad?! If so that extortionate! Think I might have to get a three SIM card

Well, those are EE's published prices. I can only tell you the facts, not assess whether they are appropriate for you.

 

You could ask EE to upgrade you to a Max Plan at a higher price point for the duration & maybe relinquish it in a month or 2's time.
