No. It is not resolved. Looks like it's a common issue with all fido/Roger users in India.

Which phone do you use? My brother is using an iphone and he gets Airtel network. I use a Huawei P20 android phone and it does not show any network.

Its something to do with FIDO. They are blocking the SIM from registering on any network. I had the same phone and SIM when I was visiting India in May 2020 and It was working perfectly fine then.

Please let me know if this issue was resolved. My fido sim was working for a couple of days and was registered on the Indian Airtel Network but now its not working. When I try to connect manually to the airtel mobile network it  says forbidden. Please let me know how to resolve this.
