I bought myself a Samsung Galaxy s3 yesterday and decided to get an 8ta prepaid SIM to test the 3g network.
When I put the SIM card in and powered up the phone I did not get the SMSs for settings and phone number etc.
Eventually I phoned 8ta customer care and after 30 minutes the support person sent me the settings for the phone.
The problem is though...whenever i try phone or SMS it shows a msg saying "Not registered on network"
I can't browse the internet either.
I have only managed to send 1 sms and make 1 call...but nothing since.
I apparently have full bars signal.
The icon showing my 3g connection has disapeared entirely after showing "E" for a few hours.
When I go to the settings menu to select a network operator I can only see MTN, Vadacom, Cell C and 65502...
I have tried taking out the SIM and utting it back in but that didnt help.
