    I received my SANEI N10 today from an eBay supplier and inserted my Tescomobile SIM card in the SIM card slot on the side making sure it was installed correctly. I switched on the tablet and tried to make a phone call. It displayed a dialogue box saying 'Mobile network not available'. I tried a different SIM card and same result. When I go to Settings/Mobile Networks/Network Operators/Search Networks it finds the Tesco 3G network ok and registers on it.

    Any suggestions on why this is happening?

    Thanks.

    When I check the About Tablet/Status the following settings are shown:

    Network: O2 Ireland
    Signal Strength : -81dBm 16 asu
    Mobile Network Type: HSPA:11
    Service Status: Out of Service
    Roaming: Roaming
    Mobile Network State: Disconnected
    MDN: unknown

    etc

    Hope that helps identify the problem.

    You may have 2 problems. The first is that the tablets were not intended to make phone calls. The SIM was intended for data, though there are a few apps that will allow some calling. The second problem is that your SIM may not have been activated by O2. I would check with them but all you could expect would be data.

    Another possibility is that you aren't in the service area for that SIM/data plan.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have used the same SIM card in both my phone (Samsung Galaxy SII) and another 7" Chinese tablet both of which could make phone calls. When I put it in the 7" tablet and do the About Tablet/Status the following settings are shown:

    Network: O2 Irl
    Signal Strength : -97dBm 11 asu
    Mobile Network Type: UTMS:3
    Service Status: In Service
    Roaming: Roaming
    Mobile Network State: Disconnected
    MDN: unknown

    The main difference seems to be that the 7" sees the network type as UTMS:3 whereas the SANEI sees it as
    HSPA:11 but I don't know if this is significant. I also tried send a text and got more or less the same result - no service.

    Just an update to say that I tried a Vodaphone SIM card in the tablet and it worked - now able to make phone calls and send/receive texts. Can't figure out why as the network type shows as HSPA:11 same as O2. There is a slight different in the size of the metal contacts on the SIM card, the Vodafone ones are slightly larger than either Tesco or Meteor so maybe that has something to do with it.
