Return from abroad - no network access!

I just got back from being abroad. I used mobile internet while away and had to change my APN settings as I could roam but couldn't access internet while abroad. I arrived home today and don't even have virgin mobile signal. I have changed APN settings back, rebooted phone, taken SIM card put and put back in... No luck yet! I have a FairPhone 2. Help please?!

Re: Return from abroad - no network access!

Hi emfan,

 

sorry to be stating the obvious here. But as you don't mention it, have you done a "manual network search"?

Does your phone locate any networks when doing so?

Re: Return from abroad - no network access!

A sensible question :-) I have done that actually, I find many networks, virgin included. In brackets next to them all it says "forbidden". Which is annoying!
