We've got two users with the 8830 presently in Aberdeen Scotland. They have the SOS error on the device and can't get a connection.
They've played with the network settings and I've confirmed with Telus that they do have International Roaming on their accounts. However, the lady I spoke to wasn't sure if Scotland was included in the coverage because it wasn't listed. BUT, I told her that the UK IS listed which probably includes Scotland. Am I right?
Anyway, still can't get it to work. Other than having the International Roaming applied, was there something else that was supposed to be done for activation? Maybe they really don't have coverage in Scotland?
Verify that the phone serial #"s are in the system (not just the sim #)...when My gf changed here phone, she couldnt get her's to work in the gsm coverage.
That was the problem, she also had the sos issue it took them 2 weeks to figure it out!
I sent an email to the local sales rep explaining the situation. Somehow she must have pulled some strings and the guys in Scotland are now working!
I also had them give me a list of phone numbers and matching SIM card IDS. Every one of them was wrong and I'm expecting some sort of compensation.
Although they screwed up majorly and caused some inconvenience for me, the travellers, and even the sales rep, Telus has been very good and once the right people got involved after confirming the issue, the matter seemed to have been resolved overnight.
