Question about Pantech Matrix Cell Phone

1 Answer

Pantech matrix phone doesnt read sim card.

My boyfriend and i purchased a new Pantech Matrix cell phone from ATT. For the first day, the phone worked fine and there were no problems at all what so ever. However, the second day (today) the phone is saying that there is no sim card in it and one needs to be put in. I took the phone to ATT and they said that the sim card reading thing was loose, wiggled it somehow, and the phone worked fine. Now, roughly 6 hours later, the phone is doing the same thing. Is there anyway to fix it for the time being until we can get back to ATT and do something about it?

    I puchased a Pantech Matrix for my daughter 2 months ago. After about a week her phone started saying it could not find the sims card. I reported it to AT&T and was sent a replacement phone. Now the new Matrix is having the same problem. Calling AT&T again for help.

    I got a new phone in January.  I had the same problem.  I went to an AT&T store in less than a week.  They replaced the phone.  I later realized they gave me the same SIM card.  The problem continued.  I went back again and this time got a new SIM card.  They told me I only had 30 days from the time of purchase to resolve this.  I had to go out of town and the problem continued.  I don't know how to resolve it.  It's still going on months later.  I'm not happy but AT&T doesn't seem to feel it is an issue.

SOURCE: Pantech Matrix water damage T-T

honestly within the past two days I have gotten my matrix soaked...once in the shower and then my boyfriend threw it in the toilet when we were playing around. the first time I used aerosoft keyboard cleaner and sat in on the vents on top of my tv. The second time I wasn't at home so I filled a bag up with rice and silica bags and then turned it on the next day and it's working fine...I just get this random beep every now and then. And I can see moisture in the corner of the screen. My phone has been through hell. Just do what you think is best and go for it. Not in the freezer though...BIG NO NO

My pantech matrix cell phone says insert sim card

This problem arises sometimes because the mobile is unable to read the SIM. May be you should fold a small piece of paper in the same size of the SIM and keep it on top of the SIM and then insert the Battery. I think this will solve your problem.

Putting existing tmobile sim in atat pantech c740 phone says sim locked

ATT phones are locked to only work with ATT sim cards. You can call ATT for the subsidy unlock code, but since it sounds like you don't have service with them, they might not give it to you.
The other option is to do an online search for the subsidy unlock code your that model phone; there are sites that will give you the code for a fee.

Invalid card on pantech matrix phone

Your SIM card is invalid and needs to be replaced.

1 Answer

Whenever i turn on my Pantech Matrix, it says Invalid card, and shows a picture of a SIM card or something with an arrow pointing down.

Check to see if you SIM card is inserted correctly or if its loose. If that doesn't work you will unfortunately have to get a new SIM card. They run, I think, about 20 bucks.

I have a Pantech Matrix. When I turn it on, I receive and error message. The message reads, "Smartchip not provisioned MM #2." And, when I attempt to make a call, I receive an "Emergency Call Only"...

I'm Currently using this phone. I had this problem also. Take to your and request for a new SIM Card, or you could try just removing the SIM card and re-inserting it.
