I’m having problems making/receiving calls.

Is your phone set to ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode?

Android: To turn this setting off on an Android device swipe down from the top of the screen and tap your current option: Alarms only, Priority only, or Total silence. Press the volume down button and tap Turn off now.

iPhone: To turn this setting off on an iOS device swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap the crescent moon shaped icon.

Your surroundings can really affect the quality of reception, especially if you’re a long way from a mobile mast. Buildings close by, cars or electrical equipment can block a signal – we’d suggest moving from where you are if it’s possible. If you’re near lots of trees, inside a large building or in a valley the signal may not be as reliable – we’d suggest finding an open space.

If you’re still having issues making or receiving calls please answer these questions, submit this Form and our team will get in touch with you to fix the issue.

I'm having problems connecting to the network

There are some changes and steps that you can take to try and fix this issue before contacting our team.

1. Have you reset the device? Turn your device off, leave for 30 seconds and turn it on again. Or refer to your user guide to find out how to do a 'soft reset'.

2. Have you manually searched for the JT network? Please go to Settings > Carrier > Deselect Automatic if it’s already set > Select JT > Try loading a page or making a phone call.

3. Have you tried your SIM card in another device?

If you’ve tried all of these steps and you still can’t connect to the JT network, please fill out this Form to help one of the team fix this as quickly as possible.

Our team may get in touch with you because the nature of the issue needs you to be in the property to carry out some tests on the device which will help the team get to the root of the issue.

How do I activate my JT SIM?

There are a couple of things to check before you get in touch with us to activate your new SIM card.

  • Make sure the SIM fits your handset before we activate it
  • Check your handset isn’t locked to another network provider. The good news is that any handset that you buy from JT won’t be locked so you can use any SIM card in it.

If you get your SIM card from our JT shop one of the team will activate it in store for you unless you ask for it to be kept inactivated.
If you do receive a blank SIM (in the post or as part of a gift for example) you can visit the store where one of the team will be happy to activate it for you, or you can contact us so we can activate it remotely.

Remember, if you’d like a blank SIM activating you’ll need to have this information to hand:

  • The JT Account number that the SIM card is associated with.
  • Valid photo ID if you’re visiting the store.
How do I test my mobile data speed?

Download the Ookla speed test App from the iOS App Store or the App by Ookla for Android handsets.
To help make sure the speed test displays accurate results, please read each of the below points:

  • Ensure your phone is on the JT network and you have 4G/LTE enabled in your settings.
  • Open the Speedtest app and check that the server is set to JT / Jersey Telecom Limited.
  • Press the GO button, then wait for the speedtest to complete.
My phone has been stolen/lost.

Don’t worry, we’ll do all we can to have you back up and running as quickly as possible.

Please contact us to inform us that your phone has been stolen. We’ll suspend your SIM card to make sure that no one can use it to make calls, send texts or access data.

You can then decide whether you’d like a replacement SIM card (your number will stay the same) or would like to wait until your phone is found/returned to you.

We recommend letting the police know that your mobile has been lost/stolen. This will give you a reference number for any insurance claim.

How can I find my PUK number?

Your PUK number is shown on the SIM card holder so we’d advise keeping it in a safe place in case you need it. If you can’t find your SIM card holder, you can use our automated phone system 24/7. Call 01534 882882 and follow the options.
