No reception in Australia

Hi, I’m traveling atm and didn’t have a problem with my fp2 at the last stop in Thailand. For the flight I put the phone in flight modus and now I’m in Australia and my phone can’t find any reception. The sim cards can’t be the problem. I have a Germany and a New Zealand one and have used both of them in Australia before. Do I need to change the settings? And has anyone had this problem before?

  • You can try to change the settings which SIM card is using 2G only or also 3G and 4G. Only one of the SIMs can use 3G or 4G.
  • Maybe have a look at which was mentioned elsewhere in the forum.
  • If you remember which roaming provider you used previously, you can choose it manually in the mobile networks settings.

I was in Australia from December till January and the FP2 worked fine with Telstra and Vodafone until it braked down. But that is another story.

I was in Australia last summer (our sumer :stuck_out_tongue:) and everything worked fine with my Austrian and my Australian SIM card. But of course if you are in a remote area (Outback), you can’t have reception since there are no signal towers/transmitters/whatever they are called.

Please note that Telstra turned 2G recently off, the other providers will follow soon. If you were connected via Telstra 2G, you will now be unable to do that.

I tried 3G and 4G but it didn’t work. Will try it again though. When I tried to connect manually it said that it can’t connect, I should try again later.
And I’m in Sydney and my bf is having full reception with his German sim-card so that can’t be the problem.
