  5. Billing Issues: There could be restrictions on your account due to unpaid bills or billing errors.
  6. SIM Card Activation: If you recently got a new SIM card, it might not be fully activated or registered for international use.
  7. Device Settings: Incorrect device settings can prevent your phone from connecting to local networks abroad.
  8. APN Settings: Incorrect Access Point Name (APN) settings can disrupt data usage abroad.
  9. Local Restrictions: Some countries have specific restrictions or regulations that might affect mobile services for foreign phones.
