Why can't I call or text from europe

Hi, on a recent visit to Holland, I had data, but calls and texts failed.  Now on greece the same.

I found that 'premium rate and international calls' was disabled in the device profile.  Have now enabled through ee website, but need to wait 24 hours.

Would this have been the problem?

Yes, you hadn't activated roaming on your a/c before you left UK.

Hmm. Enabled yesterday through myee, but today was blocked again.  Enabled again today and refreshed page = still enabled.  Will I need to call ee to sort it ?
