Some things to try:

  1. Manually search for another network
  2. Reboot the phone
  3. Try toggling Airplane mode on/off (it often helps kickstart things)
  4. If still not working then contact O2 to remove the Roaming bar on your account

 If you message O2 on Facebook ( https://o2uk.co/O2CFB) , Twitter ( https://o2uk.co/O2CTW) or Instagram ( https://o2uk.co/O2CIG) , they should be able to help you with this.

From memory, I don't think you can roam on O2 PAYG in Zimbabwe as there is no roaming agreement.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

@Joyous Follow @Cleoriff's advice and contact customer service.

If you want to make calls or send texts to friends, find a good WiFi connection and download WhatsApp. You can call, text, and video call for free with anyone who also has the app installed on their phone.
