Purchased Travel Pass but No Connection

Hi,

I am currently in Germany and purchased a travel pass this morning. I purchased a 250MB Travel Pass, and I was very glad the text finally worked after a bit of playing about.

I got the 'Thank You' text and decided to try it out to make sure it was active. It says 3G in my notification bar, as well as an R next to my bars of signal.

Texts go through fine, unlike yesterday. But I'm having 0 luck connecting to mobile Web. No signs at all of it working...

This is becoming a nuisance now, I just want to be able to contact home on the go.

When I send the 'STATUS' text I receive a text back instructing me how to buy a pass?

Re: Purchased Travel Pass but No Connection

Hi byrom94,

 

since you haven't responded to the suggestions I made on your last post I don't know whether they were helpful or not?

Clearly something has changed as you are now able to text.

Might it have been the settings on your handset?

On some models (mine for one) it is necessary to also enable data roaming on the phone itself.

This will be something like: Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks > Data Roaming

Or: Settings > SIM management > General settings > Roaming > Data roaming

Sorry, yes texts now work. My data roaming is switched on in my settings.

Hi byrom94,

what phone have you got?

what was it that you had to do to get your texts (and calls?) to work?

My phone is a cheap one from China. A Doogee X5.

I did what you recommended. As far as I can tell, turning off the international call barring was the solution.
