international roaming but calls are barred on the account

I have enabled international roaming but I believe I have left an overseas bar on my phone which is preventing me sending texts, how do I remove the bar?

Re: international roaming but calls are barred on the account

Hi, thanks for coming through. We don't have an option to bar just International SMS, without also barring International calls, at least not at our end. 

Assuming you're capable of making calls while overseas, it's either a fault or a setting in your handset. Can you make calls? - Matthew.
