roaming not working in italy

Roaming not working in Italy, please help! According to other users posts, I should write to you privately and send you my mob nbr and account details? How do I do this? Where can I write?

Re: Cannot make phone calls from abroad

Hi James, same problem here in Italy. Roaming is not working, nor calls or messages. I really NEED my phone working, that's why I purchased such and expensive sim card in London! Please tell me what to do. Thank you in advance. Cecilia

@checha  Did you enable roaming on your account before you left the UK ?   If not you might be able to this from with your online account or even the My EE app ( when it’s working again)  




You will have to wait till tomorrow now as CS is closed.   But tomorrow login to your online account and wait for a live chat window to pop up you can use this to request roaming to be enabled on your account.

Hi @checha,


Welcome to the EE Community.


Are you using a pay as you go or pay monthly plan?


Does your phone show it is connected to a network in Italy?

Good Morning and welcome to the community @carmen96


I hope you're having a lovely time in Italy! How is the weather?


Are you able to check your account is set up for roaming by following the below steps:


Log in to My EE > Menu > Manage device > Ensure both Roaming and Calling abroad are enabled.


Please let me know the outcome of this, 


Katie 🙂
