Why can’t I make calls abroad? When I try to make a call it gets blocked

When I try to make a call from Spain i receive an automated message from “pre-orange information” telling make that calls are barred. I can’t even call 150

Hello there @Hus017

 

Welcome to the community.

 

Can you receive calls and texts?

 

Are you with us on a pay monthly account?

 

Thanks, Leanne 🙂

Hi @joshuapreston and welcome to the community.

 

So I can try and help, please may I get you to perform a manual network search and choose a network other than what you are on.

 

iPhone: Go to Settings > Carrier and turn off Automatic. Wait until available networks appear, which might take two minutes. Tap the carrier that you want.

 

Android: Open the Settings menu >Tap More > Mobile Networks > Carrier and turn off Automatic. Wait until available networks appear, which might take two minutes. Tap the carrier that you want

 

Please, also can I get you to try and dial a friend or family member using the format of 00447********* and try using data. 

 

Did this work?

 

Many thanks,

 

Lee
