This issue occurs in any phone I put the SIM in

Yes but I live in a area that the status checker says should be good and fast Internet any way that I could reach the 60mps 4g?

Thanks for providing those details @NI420KS. I've checked around your area and as previously advised, you should be getting good speeds and there doesn't seem to be anything that might be causing a disruption at the moment.

If you've tried your SIM in various phones and the issue is still the same, that rules out a problem with the handset; but could still point to an issue with the SIM. 

If you pop into your local Vodafone store, they'll be happy to do a little testing and give you a replacement SIM right there and then. Give that a go and let us know how you get on!
