Sim stop working overseas

Hi team,


I am in the UK and I have been here since June. When I first came here, my sim still worked and can search and use a local mobile network. 


However, it just stopped working now (I can't remember since when). The phone only shows "Emergency calls only" and there are cross marks on the network icon.

I really need my sim to work since it still links to my Australian bank account and need to receive sms for verification codes.


What should I do now?

Re: Sim stop working overseas

A few things to check :


Do you have any recharge active on the sim? Otherwise your service would be disconnected after 6 months without any valid recharge.


Are you connected via WiFi? Telstra/Boost has stopped their prepaid roaming arrangements for the medium term. But some people mention they can still connect via wifi for calls/sms (if your phone supports the Telstra VoLTE setting etc).
