International Roaming not working

I have a US prepaid sim and it's not working in the Philippines. It's not able to connect to the local network and I have no service at all.

Troubleshooting steps I did:

1. Reset network settings

2. turn on and off airplane mode

3. rebooted phone

4. Removed sim and inserted it back

5. Reached out to chat support but they said they are postpaid team and I need to reach out to Prepaid team via phone - My sim has no service so I am not able to call Prepaid team.

6. Purchased International Roaming as an Add on but still not working

My phone: Samsung Galaxy s10+


1. Why is international roaming not working on my phone

2. is there an email address for Prepaid team that I can reach out to?

Roaming is not working because prepaid does not roam in the Philippines. Prepaid international roaming is limited to Canada, Mexico and select European and Caribbean countries. Prepaid does not roam anywhere in Asia. The international travel add-on you purchased only works in those select European and Caribbean countries. You, unfortunately, wasted your money. No, there is no email support but contacting support won’t help. At best they might credit your account for the add-on.
