Put the tick in the allow data roaming box but still no data happened. This was going down the otrahonga road on the way to teawamutu. At some stages it showed some bars but no data happened
Getting into hamilton area, tried forcing it back onto 2degrees and was just getting messages about the sim not registering on the network. Airplane mode and back didnt help, and I got the message about not registering on the network after a power cycle. After a few mins it did register on the network and get data again.
Then later on when just out of hamilton on cambridge road, it did the thing again with bars but no data. This was on bollard road which is showing as being in the 2degrees mobile broadband area.
So anyway, is this a problem that has a solution. If I am not there to fiddle with menus to try and change network etc to get data working again, its pretty hopeless.
The plan its on is the prepay one with the 300 megs of national data for $19 so it should have just worked even when roaming (if that box was ticked which it is now)
