Unlimited minutes but unable to make calls

My son's contract (that I pay for) has unlimited calls but since he switched phone from Android to an iPhone, he's been unable to make any outgoing calls. Whenever he tries he hears a message saying that he doesn't have enough credit to do so.

I've tried a couple of suggested fixes posted elsewhere on this forum but nothing has worked so far. His texts and mobile data are working fine.

I also tried using the automated text service to fix the problem but gave up in frustration...

Re: Unlimited minutes but unable to make calls

Sort of solved... a further search turned up a workaround - setting the iPhone's region to Belgium has fixed the problem for now.

Re: Unlimited minutes but unable to make calls

If that's the case try this

Go to:

Settings -> mobile data -> SIM Applications (near bottom) -> tap "Roaming"  -> tap "Select Mode"

I found "automatic" was selected by default.

Tap manual -> then choose National.

Set dial assist back to UK

Let me know if it works
