Calling abroad info
If you’re a pay monthly customer, making calls or sending texts to numbers based outside the UK isn’t included in your monthly allowance, so you’ll be charged each time.
If you’re on a Capped contract, these charges will come out of your safety buffer, until you reach your bill cap. If you reach your bill cap, you’ll need to make a payment or increase your safety buffer to keep using your phone.
