It works fine in the UK but in Spain it tried to connect but showed the cross as it failed. My 3 settings are fine for roaming but the symbols on the mifi are not! It is unlocked. I have used it in Hong Kong and Sri Lanka without problems. (was bought in Hong Kong)
It worked with Orange Spanish sim but I took it into the shop and the girl set it upy for me. It seemed to take her a long time but I have no idea what she did.

I don't seem to have got the multiquote sorted properly either

You can log in there - it may still be admin/admin and have a look at the settings. You may be able to tweak something there.
Your first 2 worked emjaiuk, I am testing multi-quote from my Kindle.

I've sent Orange. pl another email, maybe by the time we go away, other than into Poland, it will be working. It works at home because it thinks I'm in Poland.

yep done that but it has the "roaming" icon greyed out, Hover over it and it says OFF but I can't find any way of turning it to ON
