How do I text when I’m abroad?

If you’re having problems sending texts while roaming in another country, remember you need to enter + and the international dialling code at the start of the number. For example, it’s +44 to text the UK, and +33 to text France.

So instead of texting 07700 900123, you’d text +44 7700 900123.

Please note: if you have problems texting numbers saved in your address book, you may have to manually re-type the number with the international dialling code first.

For more international dialling codes take a look at the full list BT has published online. Please note that as this information isn’t provided by us, we can’t guarantee its accuracy.
