Check roaming is turned on in your account
International roaming will be activated automatically on your Pay Monthly account if you have a phone account. You can check whether international roaming is activated by going to your My3 account either on your computer or on your phone:
- Go to your International Settings section in My3.
- Log in using your phone number and password.
- You'll find the information under the "Using your phone abroad" and "Using your internet abroad" sections.
You'll also need to make sure that data roaming is turned on in your device's settings if you want to use data abroad.
