Go to Settings. Select Mobile and Networks. Then search for the available networks and select your home network manually and then check.

And also tell me if you are receiving any signals or not?

signals seem fine
network mode is LTE/3G/2G/ ( AUTO CONNECT)

Not network modes. Select Network operators. Then you will get a list of networks available. Then select your home network and check

Turn off the phone and remove the sim card. Then again put it back and then check.

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 4 months ago.

Do you have any other phone with you right now? If yes, then connect the sim into that phone and then check if the problem is same in that phone also?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
just the same
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 4 months ago.

Have you used this sim before?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No it was fitted in to the phone when I got it yesterday but I haven't tried to send mail or phone any one until today
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 4 months ago.

Which network are you using?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
o2
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 4 months ago.

You should contact O2 as they have not yet activated your sim card. This is not a fault of your phone. Just your sim hasn't been activated yet.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
OK will do, is that all I need to do, if so why didn't I know that. For goodness sake what a hassle free day I might have had Thank you so much
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 4 months ago.

Yes you need to do that only. Just tell them that you have bought a new connection with this number and it has not been activated yet. They will activate it and you will then get the signals on your phone. Your issue will be resolved then

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I have done that and it should be up and sorted by tomorrow
Lets hope so I would like to thank you for your patience and help I am not very quick on these things
Thank you
Annette
