If you have an O2 data sim in it you won't be able to make normal phone calls.

You could make calls over Whatsapp, Skype or Facebook messenger if you have one of those installed and your Family does too.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

@Nathan6 You can use Skype to call any number, even if the other person doesn't have the app. You just need to buy a small amount of credit.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
