Why didn't my phone work abroad?

I'm back from Berlin and my phone (an unlocked iPhone 5 with a Three SIM) wouldn't pick up a signal at all while in Berlin. Any ideas anyone ???

Yeah, you need international capabilities activated on the network side.

I recently had it done via twitter: @ThreeUKSupport. They can take your details via DM and do the necessary. Or, y'know, just phone them.

The only thing that I can think of - If you are using Three UK SIM card you might have roaming disabled.

Yes... Although - on the phone you can only toggle data roaming.
So, I don't know... Call Three. Maybe they need to push some buttons on their end.
