Hi, I hope someone can help me with this.

I travel between countries a lot and my Galaxy Nexus doesn't automatically register with mobile networks when I arrive in a new country. My old iPhone used to do this and it makes a huge difference to the way I feel about my phone.

I've tried and tried to work out how to get this to work but I've failed. What am I doing wrong? I don't mind paying for an app if that's the solution but the ones I've tried so far haven't helped.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

Which version of the galaxy nexus do you have? Technically speaking it is not a "world phone" but the international gsm version should work almost everywhere. Unless I'm confused on what you're asking you'd still need a sim to connect to XYZ's network in different countries.
