This would be an international call - which cannot come from your goodybag

 

PAYG credit required

Hello @martinlwilson. Goodybags can only be used to call and text uk registered numbers to anywhere in the world. 

You will need to top your credit and use that. 

Here are the prices to to call or text abroad from the uk.

Hi @martinlwilson

Are you using the SIM in the UK? There is a lot of confusion with the new EU roaming directive especially with the ‘tag line’ ‘roam like at home’. You cannot roam like at home as use in your ‘home’ country is not roaming.

The EU directive ONLY applies to use of your SIM outside your home country it does not legislate for charges while using a UK SIM while in the UK

If you are calling from the UK you are not roaming and normal international call charges apply.
To call internationally from the UK you still, as you always did, require airtime credit from www.giffgaff.com/buy/topup .

See other posts as well but I have a pal in Ireland and we use,"WhatsApp" to call and message then I don't use my,"Airtime Credit" as I'm a tightwad<grin> Smiley Very Happy
