Re: why won't my phone connect automatically when phone from abroad.

Hi bigtrev,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to hear your having issues when dialling from abroad.

 

To be honest I've not come across this before.

 

Could I ask for a bit more information from you that might help me diagnose this issue for you. I'd like to know which country you are in, the handset model and what network you are currently connected to.

 

Look forward to hearing back from you.

I thought it was normal to have to put 0044 or +44 in front while roaming abroad and phoning back to the UK :-)
