Re: Travel pass question

I travel to Europe twice a year, never trusted Virgin on roaming. I'm with a certain other network that lets me use my allowance in a lot of countries as if I were at home.

Hi Purplejosh7,

Use the default and MMS option for the APN type. Please let me know how this goes for you.

 

Thanks,

Re: Travel pass question

Thank you Terri, I have put the settings Into my phone, when I have a signal will see if it works. 

Just. Question - on APN type, I don't have an internet option, should I tick default and Mms or leave it blank?

my options on the APN type are

default, mms, supl, wap, net, dun, ia, rcs, xcap.

i have no idea what most of these mean!

 

thanks

Re: Travel pass question

Hi Terri, I think I have solved the problem, I added the supl in APN type and it appears to be working ok now.  I will let you know if I have any problems. 

Thanks for your help
