Same issue; PAYG data/internet not working in Finland. Does not matter which provider I select. Data roaming turned on...
What options do I have?

Hey guys, original thread poster here.
Just FYI on my situation:
- 2016 summer, when I'd travel abroad (home was Dublin Ireland) to London I'd buy the €3 add-on for roaming which worked perfectly for me.
- when I went to cancel the add-on a few months later I had to do so through the online help
- I bought the add-on again near the end of 2016 when revisiting London and also Edinburgh however my phone was not connecting to any network and so I was not able to uae calls/texts/data
- I complained to Three but they said I should be able to use my phone abroad and suggested trying the same solutions that I already tried (turn off, turn on, manually connect to different networks, I even went to Three stores in the two cities but they obviously had nothing to do with Three Ireland).
- after returning from the short weekend trips abroad, I soon forgot about it and gave up. Then in 2017 Three Ireland changed the contracts of bill-paying users and roaming was now inclusive of the bill
- I visited Helsinki Finland in 2017 summer with my new bill which should have included roaming. As I explained in my original post, texts and calls were working for the first few days while data never worked. Texts and calls ability disappeared after a few days. I was with Irish friends in Finland who were with Three Ireland and had experienced similar problems. I then created this thread.
- a Three staff member took my details but nothing was fixed in time for my Finland stay
- when I got home I once again got into contact with online help and another Three employee stated that they reactivated my roaming abilities (basically sounded like turning off turning on). A subsequent return to London a couple of months later showed that my roaming resumed to work. I also visited Spain and am currently in Germany and roaming has worked in both countries.
- I haven't been back to Finland since to check if my roaming works there
- I was told that I myself requested for my roaming to be deactivated when I asked for my add-on to be cancelled but it sounds like Three entirely deactivated my roaming which affected my contract change and I was left without a service. Looks like major miscommunication on Three's part screwed me over for over half a year.
