Exclamation Swedish SIM-card constantly roaming locally on Lenovo A789

I'll try to explain as simple as possible:

- Bought my Lenovo A789 dual SIM in august last year.
- I first used it in Greece with a Greek SIM-card, where it worked perfectly fine.
- I travelled to Sweden, so I set a Swedish SIM in slot 1 and moved the Greek to slot 2. While changing flights I checked my phone and both SIM-cards were roaming = normal.
- I arrived in Sweden and my Greek SIM was roaming, but my Swedish was not = normal.
- After one week in Sweden, the Swedish SIM-card suddently started roaming for every call and SMS I'd try to make/send = not normal.
- Since then, it has roamed.
- I contacted the shop through which I bought it from, and they told me to change my IMEI. I did like they told me, but nothing changed.
- Inbetween I travelled to Greece again, and my Greek SIM worked well as usual, even with the new IMEI.
- Back in Sweden I contacted my Swedish provider and told them about my issue and they asked me to try my SIM-card in a phone bought in Sweden. And so I did. And it worked!
- I then contacted the same shop again and told them the news. They asked me to empty my APN and add new ones. And so I did. But nothing changed. Still roaming.
- I contacted my provider again and made sure all the APN-settings were correct, and they pretty much are, but it doesn't work.
- I've restarted the phone many times, but it hasn't helped.

What it says when I have the Swedish SIM-in and try to make a call or send a message:
"The SIM-card you are trying to use is now roaming. No local SIM is available now. Would you like to continue?"

What it says when both cards are in:
"The SIM-card you are trying to use is now roaming. Would you like to continue through the local SIM?"

When I click Yes, I recieve this message:
"No local SIM is available now."

Any thoughts on what might be going on? Help?

Have you tried reseting the phone to Factory defaults or tried a different Swedish SIM?

No I have not. My main issue being that the phone was rooted when I bought it, and I'm afraid it might become unrooted if I reset it. I have yet not tried a different SIM-card, other than the provider I have but with different numbers. It is a good idea to do so though.
