Hello @merin1950

You will need to activate roaming on your account before you can use your phone abroad. You can do this by texting ROAMING to 150. You will also need to make sure, international calls are active, you can do this by signing into your MyEE Account or by contacting customer service on 150 from any EE phone.

 

You can check how much it will cost to use your phone in the US here.

Assuming you aren't on a new max plan, and if you are on a plan that supports it, the Travel Data Pass is available and good value most of the time.

 

£4 a day for 500MB data (from UK Midnight time) so if you land in NYC around 7pm, be careful you don't get charged a day for a few mins use, for example.
