My phone is a Galaxy A70.  It does not pick up a local network when I am abroad.  I need this resolving as I am going away this week and it is really important that I am contactable. Can you help me please?

Doubtful.

I have a dual sim phone which picks up both sims when abroad.

Do you have roaming enabled on both sim settings?

You need to call O2 to remove the roaming bar.

Thanks, I have checked with them and they say there is no bar.  I did have the sim in the 2nd sim space, but I have moved it into the first.  Do you think that could have been the problem?
