I recently got an Samsung Galaxy Note 10+5G, but I am unable to connect to my network provider, meaning I cant send/recieve SMS/Calls nor get any Mobile Data. I am on GiffGaff. I have checked the sim, and can even put the sim in my old phone and get full reception and 4G, but in the Note 10+5G, it wont connect at all. I've tried all the solutions I could find online, but none have worked.
Does anyone know of a solution to this that actually works?

Its an "Excellent" Condition refurb from Giffgaff, I can get a full refund if the problem persists, but I kinda dont want to have to do that if I can avoid it, I otherwise like the phone.
Small, interesting development. It randomly connected to the network provider for a minutes, and I was able to send and recieve some test SMS Messages. Seems to have dropped again now though. My area is not known for the best reception, but I have no issue on my other phone to send and receive message/calls, or stream videos via 4G, nor does anyone else in my family

It appears that I am able to recieve both reception and mobile data, but only in areas of 4/4 signal, any areas less than that, and it doesnt work. From what I've read. this is apparently an issue with this phone , and was wondering if anyone knew of a patch or fix for it. All other methods i've tired dont seem to have much effect.
And yes, Switching to a different provider might be an option, but one I would like to avoid, I otherwise like Giffgaff and have never had any issue in the past 10 (ish) years of being with them.
