Kids have gone to france (near spain) with the ex. Kids and I have been with 3 just a month now. They are unable to do the international roaming thing. I have phoned 3 twice today, both times being assured the phones are set up for international roaming, but they cannot get it. I have been able to contact them once via the ex, they used his phone to point out the problem. They have manually selected the network that 3 told me to tell them via the ex. I now get the feeling he has not passed on my next text. I need to know whats happening with the phones. I only found out they got there cause I got my sister in law to text him and ask. I am at a loss now. Is 3 a really rubbish network? other people have said they had not problems international roaming. I am going to Greece on Monday feeling very sick that i will not be able to contact my kids.
