nokia lumia 520

Right i joined giffgaff on the pretence its the cheapier more affordable network atm. Ive ordered my sim, registered it, put the settings into the Nokia lumia 520 as said here in the community. My issues are the loss of services, internet is none existing during the day, my phone signal goes all the time.. And you say you use the o2 network?? I was on o2 before joining and never lost internet during the day, and my signal was really gd. So i can not understand the issues. Is the service not as gd as the four best sellers o2/vodafone/EE/orange ??
or it is my area? My phone?? I don't understand but when i use internet for my photography work i might as well stayed with o2 and paid the higher rate for calls and internet.

Re: nokia lumia 520

I put aim into my galaxy s3mini on the o2 network inputted settings from here for apn and its worked. Lack of signal during the day is annoying thou... ive checked with o2 status says im in a gd signal area. So I dont get the issue. My nokia lumia now has my o2 sim in and is working perfectly fine. .. so no idea. Might just bite the bullet and say I'll keep it in my Android phone with this sim..

Re: nokia lumia 520

Hi there,firstly,if you could please turn your device OFF and wait 5 minutes,then turn your device ON again,as this can help in most cases.If your issue has not been resolved,check the signal in your area,by visiting or clicking onto the link below.

Ok
( still not fixed )

You will now need to perform,a manual roam.

1) Go to your phones "settings".

2)Select mobile network options.

3) Change the Network Selection Mode from Automatic to Manual

A list of available networks will be displayed after a few moments.

4) Select any other network that is not your home provider network. After a few moments you will see "No Service" on the display.

5)Now select your home provider(which is o2) network and change the selection back to Automatic.

I use giff gaff on a lumia 800 & 920 without any issues. It possibly is a phone fault so try a hard reset if all else fails.
