I have a Panasonic KX-TW501 (GSM Fixed Wireless Phone):




I bought a new prepay SIM card to use. It receives calls and text messages no problem.


When I try and make a call, I get a busy tone or no response at all. If I try and send a text message it tries and fails without an error.


Any ideas?




Hope was to give it to my granddaughter to use as a home phone until she is old enough to have a mobile phone.

Hey Andrew,




Unfortunately this device won't work with a mobile prepay SIM card. It's designed to work with SIM cards that carry a home phone number and not a mobile number, and so would work as a home phone/landline (with a landline number and an area code and all).




An example for the plans that would work with this device can be found here:
