I purchased an Orange Holiday World SIM card for my Samsung S5 SM G900V phone. When I installed the SIM card I received a 2 text messages. One message told me my mobile number and the other message is in French, which unfortunately I don't understand. When I try to use the phone it tells me that I have no Internet connection. can you please help me?
Opgelost! Ga naar de oplossing.
Thank you, Patrick.
The message in French does not give me any details on how to configure my Samsung S5 SM G900V phone to use the SIM card. I'm wondering if the SIM card is compatible with my phone. The message in French said:

It provides some phone numbers to call for support, but without a working SIM card I cannot make a phone call.
Are you wright now in Tsjechië ?
Before you can use the card you have to actived it in the country where you buy the card. When you don't then you're card is int working.
Thank you, Patrick. Yes, I am in the Czech Republic now. I bought the card before I left on holiday. I didn't need it for the first week of travel, and since it only is active for 14 days I did not activate it until the day before I needed it. Now it won't work. I'm thinking that it doesn't support my Galaxy S5 version (SM G900V). I see other S5 versions supported, but I don't see mine. Maybe there is a system setting that I need to use for my phone, but I haven't seen a setting that works.
Normaly when you get a extra card or simcard you need to activate on the Orange network. When you take the card en go on holliday and you are not on the Orange network then it wil not activate. That is a little security for Orange and make sure that you are the right customer.
You have a extra surf card so that is no problem to use and i think that you're galaxy will support it. So in my opinion it's only the problem that you not activated on the Orange network and that is a importent thing to make you card working.
