Question about Cell Phones
Hi Munchjen. The problem is due to an issue between certain 3G SIM cards and different modelsSamsung phones.
Your Dad's Telstra SIM is probably a 2G, but the funny thing is that this phone is supposed to work with 3G. It is some of the 3G features in 3 cards that make them not supported by several Samsung phones, this happens because an IC used in he phone does not support 3 cards or because the firmware version does not support the feature.
You need to replace the phone with one that fully supports 3 network. Other repairs like replacing the IC or re flashing the phone may solve the problem, but I think that the first solution is the best one.
If you think that this solution is helpful, then please do not forget to accept the solution. All the best.
