Samsung Galaxy note 8 (N5120)

  adebrad 16:23 29 Jul 2014

Bought one of these unlocked in States for my wife (tablet and phone in one). Put in three network sim card and can only use phone. Three say that as model not released in UK will not get a network (phone and data) SIM from anyone.........?

Has anyone got one in UK that they use for phone and data (without Wifi connection)? Hope this makes sense.

Thanks for any advice

when ever I put my sim in a new phone I don't get data until the network has recognied the new phone and a text message then arrives to tell me how to set it up to recieve data.

leave the sim in for an hour and see if you get a essage from your provider.

Bit of a pain, but you could always try another provider.

I bought an Italian Note 12.2 and a Polish Nexus 7 with no problems getting on to my network (O2),

Tried O2 who advised they could help no problems - tried vodafone who also were happy to provide sim only for this device. Seems it is just three who cannot do this..........Strange!

Thanks for advice. Network change on way.
