Can not turn off call barring

Scout
Hi, I am in Andorra and cannot make calls, send texts or use data due to call barring. My phone does not show call barring is activated. This just comes up as s message when I try to text or call. How can this be corrected?

@Ado I think only Three can do that but then you'd have to ask them to unbarr which just seems like hassle. Why not take the sim card out so you can't get any calls but you can still use your phone for wifi and then when you're in the EU put the sim back in?

Hi @Marie-G, can you send your details in PM and I'll take a look into this for you? I'll just need your number, address and date of birth please.

Hi 

 

My name is Ado and i'm roaming outside of the EU where outgoing or incoming calls are crazy prices and thus wish to disable all incoming calls while here, however, similar to others on here when prompted to input a barring password, nothing I enter will allow the application to proceed.  The message reads 'Failed to read data'. Call barring rejected.

 

From reading other messages, it sounds like somebody on here may have a solution so please help.

 

Many thanks in advance,

Ado

Simple yet ingenious. You've made a grown man happy. Only a pure plank like me wouldn't have thought of that. Just did it there and it worked like a treat. A million thank yous for your reply from A very happy Ado.

@Ado Don't mention it. Sometimes the easiest thing is the hardest to see! You can enjoy your holidays now and don't need to worry about coming back to a massive bill.
