UK Vodafone Sim in the South

I have been to the South on 2 occasions recently and both times my UK Sim did not work. It works perfectly well in the North. The Sim is in a phone that is registered with Turkcell and I wonder if it is barred for that reason. Can anyone advise?

My phone is a TRNC registered one with a UK Vodafone sim card in it. Works both sides but yes get sick of the texts telling us that we may be expecting a message about costs.

If I am over the South the provider comes up as Cyta. Here it just shows Vodafone. Make sure in settings that Network Operators is set to Select Automatically.

Try turning the phone off and back on again. This has worked for me on the occasions my UK Vodafone sim phone has not network connected once crossed over from north to south, or vice versa.

You may need to set the phone to automatically connect to networks if it is set to manual connection then it won't pick up the Vodafone network when you move off one network's area of coverage unless you tell it to.

Check the phone's settings....

I had this problem at one point. I contacted Vodafone and they told me / directed me to change some settings and then it started working again.

I could call / text, it was just the data that was an issue. I had to change the name of a server in my data settings iirc.

Just contact customer services using the app
