Will my EE SIM card work when I go on holiday to Dubai?

I'm going on holiday to Dubai for 3 weeks and I was wondering if my EE SIM card will still work as I've been told I will have no signal and I won't be able to access wi-fi. Is this true and how can I make sure my EE sim works ?

Yes, roaming should still work with PAYG plans, just make sure you top-up extra credit though before you go as roaming calls/texts outside the EU are not included in the EE PAYG packs.

 

Here are the roaming costs for PAYG in Dubai (click on the Pay as You Go tab).  Details about optional roaming data add-ons can also be found on that page.

 

You should find most of the hotels will have WiFi in Dubai.

@anon_492hsk Are you on pay monthly or PAYG?

 

PAYG should just work.  If you are pay monthly, you need to ring EE customer service and ask them to make sure roaming is enabled on your account.  It's much much easier to do this before your travel.

 

See this post for more details as well as info about other services such as turning off your voicemail etc.

I'm on pay as you go, would I still have signal when I go outside of the UK ?
