Gareth no I did not. When I landed in Jersey I set international roaming on and turned off call barring. I picked up JT network provider but couldn't send texts or call out only Internet connection I got was on the hotel WiFi. I tried virgin help and tried to text All but that did not work either. Reading the information help on roaming I think the problem was not setting it up when I was connected to virgin at home.
The holiday was great I just couldn't reply WELL to the automated Jersey gov. daily txt messages I got everyday lol. But I did receive their txt to say my pcr Covid Test on entry was negative so alls well that ends well. I know what to do in future. Thanks
