I can make calls to UK but cannot receive calls, I spent a 4 long hours with virgin mobile support with no success. I have seen similar posts where you change the SIM application setting to a manual mode for international network selection and I have tried using the COSMOTE and WIND GR networks.
My phone rings and connects I can hear the caller but they cannot hear me. If I initiate the call it works fine. I checked my mobile preferences and confirmed I have enabled the Going Abroad setting and disabled international call barring. Checking my online account I looked at my recent usage and all international roaming received calls are flagged as “in Plan? NO”
I have no issues with mobile data and can receive WhatsApp calls and texts.
Any clues where the problem lies?

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.
I am very sorry to hear you have been experiencing issues when using your service whilst roaming.
You have mentioned that the problem occurs when you receive a call and that although you can hear the caller, they cannot hear you. With that being the case, are you able to confirm if you are showing a strong signal at the time of the call?

The signal strength is good 3-4 bars and I also have no issue when I initiate the call.

Thank you for confirming Egm177.
You have mentioned using two providers whilst away. When you run a manual network search, do you have options for others or is it just the two?

There are only two that connect there is a 3rd network Vodafone GR but that has no service when selected.

Thank you for your reply.
Are you able to test the SIM in a different handset at all?

I have two iPhones an XR and 12 mini and both have the same issue with receiving calls . Both phones are on virgin contracts.
the call team have passed the fault over to the networks team so they think it is a backend issue and nothing to do with the handset.
I have also seen other community posts with similar issues and in both cases they were not resolved as the users returned back to the UK before a resolution was found.
if I look at the resent usage log all inbound calls to both phones are flagged as not in plan.

Thank you for your reply Egm177.
When did the customer care team raise this with the back office team please?

Thank you Egm177.
If a ticket has now been logged with the team, we would need to allow them time to investigate and offer a resolution.
Were you provided with a time scale for this?
