Using my phone in spain

Hi All, I live in the UK, but will be going to Spain for 1 week and would like to use my phone out there. Do I have to call 02 so they can activate my 02 account/SIM to use it whilst I'm out there. Thank you

You can use your phone as you would at home.

Not always necessary but worth calling O2 before you go to check all is setup OK.

@Mlocky657 You can use your phone in Spain as if you were in the UK.
