You can switch to Djuice, which has the same price structure, but is fully owned by Telenor. I guarantee it will work.

I have the same problem on WP8.1 with the very last update (may 2014 update).

 

  1. Nokia Lumia 1320
  2. 8.10.12359.845
  3. 3.0.5243.11988 (did not work with 2.0 0.6.4.113gf895e1a1)
  4. Free Mobile, France
  5. Roaming sometimes on Orange

My operator has an agreement with Orange and roams when none of its antenna is available.
