    Hello All,

    Arrived at Camping Jeugstadion in Ypres, and have tried to use my mobile internet, but even though I have paid £5 for 25mb of data it says 'could not activate mobile data network' as I have not subscribed to a mobile data service. I have an Iphone 3 - any suggestions anyone?

    Did you ask Virgin to turn on roaming before leaving the UK ?

    It's off by default.. if so try calling them .. 789

    I have turned the data roaming on on my phone, but didn't realise I had to tell Virgin to turn it on as well - they should have done it though, as I bought two travel passes for each phone, both 25mb of data for use in EU, so you would think they should know to turn it on.... but then again.....
