Global SIM doesn't work in the Netherlands

pennsterpennster Posts: 12FreedomPop Newbie
Hi - I have two Global SIMs which are working - I use them in the US, UK, France - but in the Netherlands they just don't work. Is there something wrong with the network / roaming partner in the NL? Could somebody check?

    I had a similar experience in the Netherlands, and wonder if anyone else has successfully used the SIMs there recently?

    I have used mine in:
    Portugal (10/2016)
    Germany (10/2016)
    France (2/2017)

    But 2/2017 during my layover in Amsterdam, I could not get my SIM to connect. I checked all of the settings, data enabled, roaming settings, APN, etc, but it never did connect. I tried both my global hotspot and my unlocked phone (both of which worked just fine in France later that same day).

    I found this thread that might be helpful: https://forums.freedompop.com/discussion/22501/is-there-any-success-storys-with-the-global-sim-abroad Basically it sounds like they have switched partners, and manually selecting the T-Mobile 3G network should work. Hope that helps. Please report back any successes - I will be traveling there soon and am hopeful it will work there.

    Hi alaska, it seems it's working again in the Netherlands, even without any manual selection of network. I think they fixed it.
