Roaming not working

[ Edited ]

My roaming isn’t working in France. I have mobile data switched on and roaming on. The 3 G sign is on at the top of the screen. Still not working. Any thoughts?

Re: Roaming not working

Make sure you have disabled 4g in your phone settings and try a manual network search and choose a different network.
If using an iPhone, change your data apn to "mobile.o2.co.uk"

Re: Roaming not working

It does sound like an iPhone problem. If so you need to change the apn back when you return.
