    Hi there,
    I am heading overseas, so I purchased a Woolworths global roaming sim card thinking that it should work fine on my phone.
    Now I cannot to a network, calling or data network.

    Can anyone help me out ? I would have thought if they work with android and iphone it should work with windows 8.1 ?

    Is the phone unlocked?
    All bets are off if the phone is still locked. (like if it hasnt been explicitly unlocked and under ATT or T-Mo's wing.)

    Huh.
    Normally when something goes wrong you simply wont have data and mms.

    I sure hope its something as simple as being out of a coverage area.

    Can you confirm the supported bands match up?

    All the phones I've bought were purchased outright new without any plan. But they were all locked to a carrier until I had them unlocked. In my case the carrier they were locked to was my first choice so I got the unlock codes from the carrier for free after using the phones for a few months.

    So can you confirm your phone is not locked?

    Just remembered this thread :) The simcards ended up being faulty. I tried in a couple of other phones, Android etc and they didn't work and the tech support said to send them back.

    cheers
