I have a pay as you go sim that I bought some time ago in England. I am resident outside England but I top the sim up every month.
In the last month or so, I get a notification that pops up on the phone telling me that if I want to keep using the +44 number (ie. The number on the sim) for messaging, I must remove the sim and put it back in.
I have done this several times but the notification keeps coming up. It is currently popping up about every hour!
What is going on? How do I stop this madness?
If you are in the EU you are limited to 63 days use outside the UK before you need to register on O2-UK.
UK sim cards are for use in UK and temporarily whilst abroad.
All networks are the same.
If you don't want the hassle, use a sim from your country.
I read the stuff about roaming limitations and the effect on tariffs etc.
I NEVER use the allowance I get from the sim. I only got the damn thing because my son gave me the phone and it was locked to O2. I use the phone for whatsapp.
Nothing in the notifications indicate any problem with roaming limits.
It's nothing to do with allowances.
It's 63 days use in any 4 month period and then it must register back on O2-UK to reset.
