errors in sending messages

Hello! Greetings from Hong Kong. I have bought the pre-paid sims from EE store last summer in UK and have regularly top-up the card via Internet with my credit card.
Recently I have received a reminding message which told me to send out a message (see below: remind.jpg).
Nevertheless, this is found that I cannot send out any messages from my phone in Hong Kong. It shows the error messages after I tried to send message to the CS and other numbers.
I would like to seek help from the community to see how I can deal with the issue, as the number is vital for me to contact with my customer in UK. Thank you.

@sino1368  On reading one of them message it says 




 So you have to call EE customer services to sort this.  This can not be done via this his forum and there is no live chat for payg customers.

EE PAYG SIMs are deactivated after 6 months of non-use. You were informed that this occurred on 23/12/18 after being warned that it was imminent. You then have a further 3 months to call EE to reactivate it before it is lost completely.
