I joined 2degrees recently and I have discovered a strange problem that seems to be related to the 2degrees SIM card.
I have a Galaxy S phone. When I initially open the contacts application on the phone, it takes 11 seconds to open! Normally it is about half a second maximum. I was puzzled as to what could have changed that has caused this. After a process of elimination I have discovered that this only happens when the 2degrees SIM is in the phone. I have a couple of other SIMs I use overseas and when these are in the phone the contacts application opens normally (about half a second). It also loads the contacts app very quickly if there is no SIM in the phone.
I tried removing the contact saved on the SIM but this doesnt make any difference. I also tried configuring the contacts app to ignore contacts save on the SIM but this didnt make any difference either.
Is it possible that I could have a faulty 2degrees SIM card? I thought a SIM card would either work or not work if it was faulty. I can reproduce the problem at will. Maybe I will take the phone to a 2degrees shop and try another SIM to see if the problem occurs or not.
