Making an international call ?
If making an international call, please ensure you are dialling the international code, followed by the country code and finally by the mobile/landline number (without the 0 in the beginning).

Did you insert your SIM card correctly ?
It might be the wrong way around! Double check this online, different phone models have different ways of doing this

Is your phone unlocked ?
If you bought your mobile phone from another company, they are normally locked to that company. If it is locked, you will usually need to contact the phone company that it's locked to, and ask them to unlock it for you.

If having performed the above steps your new SIM card is still not working, please request a new SIM card.
