Re: No service in Myanmar

Burma  (as it was) is one of those countries where mobile usage can be very limited. I had problems there even though I was on contract. I ended up with a local sim card but had to present my passport...quaint.

Yes, roaming switched on. Pay monthly user. iPhone 5s. Works as expected in Bangkok during transfer to Myanmar. Do O2 have a roaming agreement with MPT, Telenor, or Ooredoo - the three networks in Myanmar?

Have you had the phone unlocked by O2, so it will work with another network, otherwise a local sim won't work?

Re: No service in Myanmar

Contract Customers should be able to use MPT network.

Re: No service in Myanmar

No, I haven't tried that. Is there a particular team I need to approach in O2 to get that done? And are there any side effects/implications?
