You are able to use your phone abroad but you must be aware of the increased usage charges. These will be greater than the charges in the UK and will be dependent on the country you are visiting.
Pay When Roaming
Pay When Roaming is a much improved offering from EE.
For a £2 daily access fee users can make unlimited calls and send unlimited text messages whilst in the European Economic Area (EEA) and includes a 500MB data roaming allowance.
In addition EE offers a £6 daily access fee for their “Traveller Zone” that gives the same voice, data and text allowances for a number of countries outside of Europe.
If you are planning on travelling to countries not included in EE’s Pay When Roaming zones please contact the IT Service Desk well in advance of travel and you can discuss the options available.
Please be aware that if you exceed the 500MB daily allowance there could be significant out of bundle charges levied.
Pay When Roaming is not offered on the “Voice only with Tech Fund” tariff. Please contact the IT Service Desk to discuss any requirements.
Whilst abroad you will incur additional charges when you answer any voice call, but the charge will be dependent on the locations of the calling and called devices. Check the country you are going to and the associated costs on the EE website.
The IT Service Desk will be able to advise you and ensure that your mobile is correctly configured for roaming in your chosen destination.
