Re: Texts from Turkey

The roaming switched on and international call barring off, is that on your online account as well as on the phone, and did you do that before setting off?

Did you get a welcome to Turkey text, and have you tried manually connecting to all of the local networks? 

Here's the link to costs, if you get it working.

Re: Texts from Turkey

Hi Zxcvbnm12345,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community.

 

I'm sorry to hear that you're having some issues making calls/sending texts whilst you're away in Turkey.

 

Are you able to receive calls/texts okay?

 

When was roaming switched on?


Do you have a red or purple SIM?

 

Can you run a manual network search and try connecting to each network to see if that helps?

 

Let me know and I'll be able to help further.

 

Thanks

 

Melissa
