Cant use phone abroad

I am currently in Italy but can't use my phone. I have made sure that my account is set to use data roaming etc. And the phone is set to roam but I currently cant make calls , text , or data roam.  When i check for networks/carriers none appear. If i select connect automatically non appear.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Strange, presumably you didn't get any welcome to Italy texts either.

Just making sure you have switched the phone off/on as well. 

Are you in the countryside, or town/city?

Try all the network modes when searching for networks as well.

Yes that's right , no welcome texts or anything. I'm in Rome so woukd think I'd connect. I tried my wife VM sim in my phone and got connected straight away to I Tim as a carrier so looks like my SIM is the issue.

Yes, you have a sim that doesn't want to to roaming at all.

Possibly vm resetting the roaming their side might fix it. If you have time or inclination you can call 789 (free) from the other vm phone.

You can try your sim in the other phone too.
