I'd heard it was to do with international calls, where VAT is not applicable. Not 100% sure though, as although I'm VAT registered, I don't use my phone for international calls, so have never had cause to query it.

Hmmm, this is interesting. Maybe it's for calls both made AND received abroad while roaming - for example, if you were in the USA and made a call to the USA? Unless you made local calls (and not just calls back to Europe) while you were in Barbados, in which case I am incorrect!
PS Let us know if you solve the mystery...

I don't think it matters where you've made or received calls. The bill is paid in the UK to a UK registered company and is therefore subject to VAT regardless. I can't think of a situation where VAT wouldn't be added.
