SIM not provisioned for voice


I recently switched over from Three to Plusnet. Yesterday was my switching over day to port my number and my old sim stopped working, so I put the Plusnet one in. It was showing bars of signal but saying sim not provisioned for voice. I called Plusnet they said wait till midnight. So I called this morning again to say it's the same thing.

They said something weird about three potentially locking my phone but this is untrue. I have tried the Plusnet SIM in three different phones now all unlocked with the same result. I am very annoyed I thought this was a company that was meant to have good and accurate customer service.

They are sending out a replacement SIM to see if that is the issue. Is there anything from a technical pov you guys can help with? The lady on the phone didn't know what else to try...

I've been resetting the phone every few hours but still issue not solved. When people call me it goes to voice mail usually.
