hi what i found was that wen i put the other SIM card in (Vodacom, Mtn) and then went to menu, settings, network, network setup and then said available networks it would come up with three choices Cell C Vodacom MTN. Depending on the SIM card you put in choose the correct network (Vodacom SIM card would choose Vodacom) That fixed my problem hope it fixes yours bye!
