Re: Inability to call emergency services

Yeah, this has nothing to do with roaming. My phone was unable to make regular calls, but 112 (and 000) are special: they get priority and so the foreign tower routes the call regardless since it's an emergency situation.

The call centre I reached was unable to call me back because I was out of coverage, they had to rely on me calling back on a schedule.
