What does network selection mean?

As a default, automatic network selection is used in mobile devices. In this mode in roaming mobile device can perform registration in any mobile network, whose signal strength is most powerful. Also, in this mode mobile phone may change registration and move from one network to another without any actions from user.


After selecting a network manually, the phone will only use a selected network. If at any time the network is unavailable, the screen will read "No service”, and you won’t be able to make calls, send SMS or use an Internet access in this carrier’s network. This may mean that you are in a place where there is no carrier’s signal or the signal is weak. In this case, we recommend restarting your phone (turn it off and back on again) and repeat the operator search manually. If the signal is unavailable in this place, repeat the network selection, having moved to the areas where the carrier’s signal is stable.


"lifecell" is not responsible for the operation of foreign carriers in the networks where you get registered in a foreign country.

How is call diversion charged in roaming?

Only unconditional call diversion, i.e. diversion of all calls, needs no additional charge roaming. When a call diversion is enabled on condition of "No Answer", "Not Available" or "Busy", such a diverted call will be charged as two calls, i.e. an inbound roaming call and an outbound roaming call.


NB!Diversion on condition of "Busy" means that if you talk to someone on the phone and don’t have an activated call hold service, instead of "busy" beeps, the inbound call will be automatically diverted to the predefined phone number, i.e. a conditional call diversion will take place. Also, when an inbound call is rejected by pressing the end call, the call will be automatically diverted to the answering machine, i.e. a conditional call diversion will take place. Such a call will be charged as an inbound roaming call and an outbound roaming call.


To cancel all types of call diversion, dial ##002#1.png and press the call button

While abroad, except China and some other countries1

«+» - is an international prefix (rules of dialing "+" can be found in your telephone manual),

380 – country code of Ukraine,

63 – code of lifecell mobile network (63, 73 or 93),
