I've just arrived in Belgium and can't get any service except emergency on my Samsung S2. I haven't been picked up by any network. I have a monthly goodybag with plenty on it and a separate balance of £8+ on my account, which I bought to send texts from Portugal earlier this year (successfully!).

 

Any ideas, please? Thanks.

Switch the phone off, and leave it for a minute then switch back on, or put into airline mode and then back into normal mode. Can you get wifi signal?

hi peter

others have posted about this in the past,

it may be because it is so close to the uk. (signalwise)

Switching off and then on again started a process of searching for available networks. Three appeared and I was able to choose one and register successfully on it.

 

Thanks everyone!
