@Nike1

 

Not necessarily the SIM but your account.

 

What I would need you to do is give customer services a call using an alternative phone to have your account looked into.

 

Many thanks,

Thanks for trying this @Nike1

 

Are you able to select any other network in the phone settings?

 

Also, where did you purchase your new phone?

 

Thanks, Leanne.

My apologies @Nike1.

 

I thought the device you purchased in Jamaica had resolved your issue.

 

Are you using Orange, T-Mobile or EE pay as you go?

 

Many thanks,

Hi @Nike1

 

Please, can I get you to turn off the 4G signal and have 3G only then perform a manual network search and try to connect to Digicel or Flow?

 

Does this help.

 

Many thanks,

Hi @Nike1

 

The issue will lie with the SIM, are you with anyone else that is using EE?

 

Many thanks,
