Daughter currently on day one of a Med Cruise. She's in Spain unable to get any roaming. Italy next.   Tried logging into account to recieve a code. Code doesn't work! Your system keeps showing 'Sorry we're having technical issues right now'  Everyone at their wits end and stressed. Not a great start to a special holiday! Thanks 3

Hi @IzzyBeddoes,

I'm sorry to hear that your daughter is having a difficult time getting connected in Spain. If the issue is specifically affecting data, she should check that data roaming is switched on in her phone settings.

If she's getting no service at all, it's worth checking manual network or carrier selection in her settings, and testing any other networks which are available.

There's more help on our Roaming settings guide and our Device guides, if you're still finding any difficulties with this, all the ways to get in touch are on our contact us page.

Thanks,
Jonathan

It certainly is confusing, little information on the website for this.

For example - do I wait until I get to the USA - do I get a text? Do I have to go to my account when in the USA and add an add on? How do I do this without data? Can I pre-purchase this?

It is just so darn confusing and no instructions on how to use - really Three - try harder.

If you took a pay monthly plan after 1 Oct 21 then it’s £5 a day to use go roam around the world which USA is part of. (If you have a certain type of three your way plan you may have some daily roaming included in your tariff). The £5 a day will be automatically added to your bill if you use any of your allowance whilst in the USA. If you want to save money you can buy a go roam around the world pass. You can buy this in advance and it sits in your account and only activates once you use any of your allowance in a go roam around the world destination. Hope that helps you.

Hello there. 

Turkey isn't a Go Roam destination, using services there can be very expensive. Here's some of the pricing info:
