You can but it will cost you outside your allowances. They count as International calls from the UK & are chargeable.

 

International calls & texts to overseas nos. from UK can be rather expensive but EE has a free add-on that anyone, on PAYG or contract, can apply for to give these calls & texts at a fraction of the standard rates. See The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK .

Hi @jkarger

 

Welcome to the community. 🙂

 

Please see @XRaySpeX's answer above, it explains everything.

 

The free call abroad add-on will help you keep in touch with your family and friends back home in the USA at cheaper rates.
