Unable to make calls to texts from USA Repeat

Hi 2 years ago I reported this problem whilst in the USA, I am back here and situation is the same in that I can’t make or receive calls or texts. This applies to both phones on my account. Did receive the welcome to USA message. I have done all the trouble shooting tips with no success. Any ideas please?

Re: Unable to make calls to texts from USA Repeat

Hi Terry,

Thank you for for reaching out to us in our community and welcome back, sorry to hear your Phones aren't working while in the USA. what phones do you have?

What happens when you try to make a call, has anyone tried to call you since you arrived?

While you are there you can still keep in touch with your friends and family free while connected to WIFI Via WhatsApp and Facebook.

Once you do start making calls and Data as you are in the USA all are chargeable, you can find out more around the charges here?

Regards

Paul.

Re: Unable to make calls to texts from USA Repeat

Hi I have a IPhone 12 and an IPhone 6s, neither work, just get 3 beeps when I try to make a call. The original problem is here:- https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Forum-Archive/Unable-to-make-calls-from-US/td-p/4131685

it’s a bit more serious than 2 years ago as internet banking and some purchases require TFA using text messages to my phone which I now can’t receive.

As they are iPhones give this a try

  • Select Settings from the Home Screen
  • Select Mobile Data
  • Select SIM Applications
  • Select Roaming
  • Select Select Mode
  • Select Manual
  • Select International

Change it back on return
