Can anyone explain why I cannot get an account  Call Plus SIM to work with a iTegno 3800 GPRS device? This issue to me appears related to account SIM cards as it will work on a Voda Prepaid SIM OK.

 

I also tried my Spark account SIM card also with no success. I have yet to try a Spark Prepaid, but I'm thinking there is some setting in the system present in account SIM cards that blocks no phone devices while prepaid are open.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Cheers

 

John

Looks like a 2G device, so you're out of luck on the 3/4G providers and will have to stick to vodafone or 2degrees.

As already mentioned - trying to use a UMTS/WCDMA providers SIM in a 2G/GSM device. Call Plus mobile service is provided by Spark, hence neither will work. Voda & 2deg would be your go to options.
