Thanks for coming back to me richardcgci, please can you reboot your handset and let me know, if that has helped to resolve your issues, I have refreshed your network profile, so hopefully this will resolve the problems that you're having. 

Kind Regards,

Back in UK and data not connecting and SIM tool kit APP not supported? Can not connect for data. Don't know if people can call me?


Hi Richard 👋 thanks for returning to the thread. Sorry to hear you are still having issues. 

Can we just check you have rebooted the handset since returning to the UK? 

Is there a network showing for you on the phone at the moment? We need to establish if there is just no signal where you are currently, or if the phone / sim is not connected to the network. 
Are you able to make outbound calls? Or send and receive texts?

Let us know and we will continue to offer support. All the best! 🌞


Just received a call and appears to be ringing out. 


Rebooted but SIM tool kit not now supported so cannot change National to international 

Hi Richardcgci,

Thanks for coming back to us about this, I am glad to see you just had a successful call come through! 

However, as for the SIM Toolkit, we've stopped using this as an App now so this will be why it's saying "Not Supported". 

Are you able to call and text outbound? What about using your mobile data etc?
