Please can anyone help? No way of emailing Virgin on site. Checked with Virgin before setting off that my phone would work abroad. Now in Republic of Ireland, no sign of a signal of any kind, all settings good to go (I think!), but no service. Other people round me using phones no problem. I am doing a cycling holiday alone and would feel far more comfortable with a working phone. Virgin, or anyone else familiar with the issue here (whatever it is) ' please can you help? Thanks.
Thanks John, tried this and although there is a visible 'signal' marker, I have no service other than emergency calls and there are no networks coming up on auto search or manual search. Everything is enabled that can be. I just want to be able to text my mum and let her know I got here ok. She doesn't do internet so I've sent an SMS but I just don't want to be non-contactable. I feel very let down by virgin as they prevent anyone contacting them by email so that is why I am posting here, as of course I cannot call 789 as my phone has no service. Virgin Where Are You please, this is my only way of reaching you.
Update- occasionally 3 and vidaphone ie come up on manual search but it says 'unable to connect" (3) or "your sim doesn't support this network (vphone) another network on there I never heard of and tried that but still no connection. It seems Virgin has nothing set up in the Republic of Ireland. I'll go and buy a prepaid sim from the Vidaphone shop tomorrow as Virgin seem to be unable to help, or even communicate, on this issue. Thanks John for trying- reckon it would work anywhere in the world but here!
