I've been advised in the past to switch the phone off AND take the battery out for a couple of minutes. Might be worth a try.

I had a Flex 25 SIM on a recent visit. It's definitely not a data only contract but it took around 90 minutes to become active for anything - data/calls/texts.

Ooops, sorry, the sound is so abysmal on the phone I'm using that I could barley make out anything.

Only when I put the phone down did I think it could have been you!

Quite ironic now as even if it did have voice I wouldn't be able to hear anything anyway.

I have a cheapo non smartphone with me that I can use, so have decided to just get another voice /text only sim for that instead on Tuesday.

Cant be asked to go and argue the toss over a 60 LE problem, life & my holiday is too short.
