Contact support and they said can send new sim card to me. Because I try my sim card in 2 different phones and not working. Support agree sim problem, but this is not a help for me. I bought local operator sim card and working perfect. First thing I do when back to Ireland. Get new network provider. Because I can not trust anymore 48months. Good luck everyone with 48months.

So we're in the same boat- dodgy SIM card (while using a Samsung Galaxy S7). And I found out the same way, by putting in another phone (my wife's, also a 48 customer) and finding it didn't work there either. But her phone works perfectly for calls and or texts here in France.


If I didn't have continuous WiFi allowing me to use WhatsApp for text, calls and sending photos, I'd have bought a local SIM card too as my only other option (other than using my wife's phone).


But in fairness, if it's only a faulty SIM card, I have to say 48's support service has been excellent. Kevin (thank you again) in 48 chat over 2 days spent as much time as necessary to help get to the bottom of this and isolate the problem as a bum SIM card. So I'll wait until I get the new SIM card before I think of changing providers.


But I have to say I'm bemused- everything (in Dublin) worked perfectly after I signed up last month. SIM delivery and install, moving #, texts, calls, internet. I was even texting without problems as I sat on the runway in a delayed flight from Dublin. Then landing in France and it just doesn't work. We'll see, I'll post next week here when I get the new SIM.


@minmocas thanks for your posts- very helpful to me, and best of luck. Maybe see how new SIM card works for you too?

Well, SIM card arrived, popped in, started up, new settings arrived via SMS, installed them and everything works as it should. Thanks support, great job!
