@Sunshinemeg Did you activate roaming on your account before leaving the uk ? If you did are you putting 44 or +44 instead of the 0 ? And have you rebooted the device since you got there ?

Hi @Sunshinemeg 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.
Please also can I get you to try and ring using format of 00447*********
Also, please let me know If you are using an EE personal or business account?

Didn't know I had to tell customer services so haven't done. Have tried to text roaming to 150 and can't, have tried calling 150 but it tells me I need to have call barring deactivated first which I don't know how to do? I'm on a network that says TIM if that helps?

I spoke to a customer care assistant via live chat on Friday and was assured it had been sorted on my EE personal account. Well that was clearly a lie as I still cannot phone and can only text if I turn on data roaming. First stop when I get back to the UK will be cancelling my account. Appalling service

Hello @Sunshinemeg sorry to hear you are still having problems. Is roaming showing as enabled on your account now? You can check by logging in to your MYEE account online and navigating to MYEE>Manage device:
If so have you restarted the phone since? You can also try a manual network search to see what ther local roaming networks are available. 🙂

I have roaming unlocked but can't phone. Can only text uk if I turn data roaming on. Utterly useless, my baby has been sick and I can't get news easily via text. So fed up

Hello @Sunshinemeg what phone do you have? Have you tried restarting it and/or a manual network search to see if any other networks are available? 🙂

Hello @Sunshinemeg you can perform a network reset by tapping settings>general>reset>reset network settings (you will have to re-enter WiFi passwords after). If it still does not work can you get hold of another phone to try the SIM card in? This will confirm a line or device fault. 🙂

I spoke to customer services Friday who should have sorted that. Network reset hasn't worked. Clearly everybody is just guessing. I am so angry with EE for the hassle being caused here.
