I was using roaming in japan which worked fine for emergency calls but when I arrived in korea, my phone can't seem to pick up the roaming for calls/ data. This happened after I set my phone on airplane mode before boarding and off the airplane mode after landing in korea. I have a blue studio phone. Do I need to call koodo to reset my phone?

Goto settings . . wireless and networking... more . . . mobile networks... network selection...manual

Your phone will scan for available networks... it takes about two minutes...

Your phone will show available /compatible networks

Choose one

If you don't see any then services may not be available for your device.

There are 2 models of your phone with different frequencies, D630U and D630L. If you have the D630U, it would work in Japan, but not Korea. If you have the D630L, it should work in both countries.
