I am in Europe, I'm only being charged payg roaming rates and I'm burning through credit in a couple days. I have Roaming 'on' on my iPhone 5.
Previously in Europe my goody bag was used first before my credit. Can someone help me please!
Thanks for your reply!
No im not calling any "special" numbers. My usage is the same as in the uk apart from occasionally calling and texting mobiles in Europe .
What country/s are you in?

I am in Austria. I went through a couple to get here but I don't leave Austria for a little while. All of them on the Eu countries list
EU Roaming GoodyBags won't wrk outside the EU hence the Airtime credit required.You would be better off buying a local sim if you are staying longer in Aus.
Also you are only allowed 63 days EU Roaming in any 4 month period.
