USA Roaming not working

In USA. No roaming.
Can detect networks but not connect.
Roaming is enabled on my account.
Tried off & on (obviously!), reverting to 3G and 2G and tried manually selecting carriers.
Any ideas?

Iam sorry to hear that your roaming does not work properly in USA. Would you be able to check your APN settings on your phone? It should like like the list below

Name: iD
APN: id
Username: *
Password: *

MMS Proxy:
MMS APN Username: *
MMS APN Password: *
MMS Port: 8799

* anything with * should be left blank

Make sure that your APN look like this and once done, ensure that the APN is enabled after saving the settings.

Let us know if that was of any help to you.

Kind Regards.

Hi @AL41,

Hopefully we can get this resolved for you so you can continue using your services whilst in the USA. Firstly in regards to the APN settings could you please try to delete these completely and enter the settings again and restart the handset.

Secondly as you advised that you are unable to connect to the network I would advise to check which networks are available. I can see that the best network in the USA would be T-Mobile or AT&T so please try to manually connect to one of these.

If you continue to have any problems let us know and we will do what we can to help.


Thank you Kash. Unfortunately that didn't work. For info, the phone is a Vernee Thor and, on the advice of iD, I have set to 3G only.

Hi @AL41,

Thanks for getting back to us.

Were you able to manually locate the networks? Could you please try the SIM in a different phone to see if you are able to connect to the network? The handset may not be supported in the USA.

However if you could answer the questions above it should assist us to get closer to resolving this.
