HIĀ @billbod50Ā 

Ā 

Thank you for clarifying.

The P20 which you say you can not get any signal on, was this purchased from iD Mobile?Ā 

Ā 

With the Nokia, please can you check to make sure you have the late software update:

  • Settings

  • Scroll to and select phone update

  • Select check for updates

  • Wait for the search to finish

  • If your phone is not up to date, select download

Thanks

Thanks @billbod50,

I canā€™t see any issues around there. Does that handset get service when other networks SIM cards are used in it? Is there any error message that appears at all?

HI @billbod50Ā 

Ā 

The P20 may be locked to another network, this being the reason why your iD Mobile SIM card is not working.Ā 

Which network did you use on the P20 prior to moving to iD?

I bought the phone as being unlocked šŸ”“ I have not used another sim in the phone šŸ“± as the seller assured me the phone was unlocked and fully working my other sim a had was. From TalkTalk that worked in all other phones I have used i may have to look for another network into the signal doesn't get any better thanksĀ

HI @billbod50Ā 

So just to confirm, the TalkTalk sim worked fine in the Nokia phone, however, the iD sim is not? Are you unable to make/receive calls at all?

-Mohsin
