Re: Happy roam not working g

Hi Ivan Lim,

Maybe you would like to try the steps mentioned below and hopefully it'll be able to troubleshoot your problem.

Step 1: Make sure you have enabled the Roaming service by pressing *123*333#

Step 2: Purchase a Prepaid Data Plan ( Which i assume you have already done so. ) if not please dial *123*300#

Step 3: Ensure phone's setting data roaming is turned on.

For Android: Settings -> Mobile Networks

For IOS: Settings -> Cellular

Step 4: Ensure APN is set to "shppd"

How do you set the Access Point Name (APN).

For Android:

Go to (Settings -> Mobile networks -> Access Point Names). APN: shppd Username & Password: <blank>

For iOS:

Access from the browser in your device and select Install Profile. Select Install to install the APN Profile*.

Step 5: Ensure phone connects to the proffered network in respective countries

These steps and information could also be found here.

Hope this helps you with your issue Smiley Happy

It takes quite a while to connect to the data. Mine took about 15 mins to activate after signing up for data usage in Thailand. Try switching on and off data roaming in your phone settings and manuallly choose network. 


At least it works for me.

Re: Happy roam not working g

Hi there,

I bought the $32 Pre-paid card and will be travelling to US and UK.  I noticed that there were problems mentioned above getting data roaming connecting to T-Mobile, are there any tips or tricks to look out for on top of the setting up of APN and services using the happy pre-paid app before the trip, so as to ensure that the data roaming will be working when I reach US?  Do I have to manually select the T-mobile network or by default the auto roaming will select T-mobile?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Hi @ Johnix,

Thanks for asking.

The strength of the signal for T-Mobile will also affect how easily you connect to their network.

If you find it difficult to log on despite a strong signal, PM me your NRIC/FIN number and Prepaid number and I'll see how I can help.
