You may have gotten a faulty sim card. Take it back to the store or call your provider for a new one.

Phone Cannot Send or Receive Calls and Text Messages: A Simple Electronic Glitch


It is frustrating when only your phone cannot send text messages no matter how strong the network signal is. Sometimes you feel nobody cares about or remembers you because nobody calls or texts you but actually there are. Your phone just can't be reached or can't receive text messages. When these happen, turn off the phone; remove the battery and then the SIM card. Insert the SIM card to another phone and try sending text messages; if you still cannot send text messages, remove the SIM card and let it sit off the phone for at least fifteen minutes then insert it gain. You should be able to send text messages after that, but make sure you have credits.

The next thing you should look into is the phone. Make sure network signal is present then insert a known good SIM card in your phone and try sending text messages. Reset the phone if you still cannot send text messages, but back up important files and data, such as contacts, videos, images, and messages, before doing so.

One simple way to "reset" the phone is by removing the battery and letting it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Another way is by restoring the phone settings to factory settings. Simply navigate to settings then phone settings and select "restore to full factory settings" depending on the brand and model of the phone.

This tip is not intended to solve virus or firmware problems but rather to avoid unnecessary visit to the service center and save few bucks from a problem only caused by a simple electronic glitch. Check the network signal strength and your credits before jumping into any conclusion.

Phones unlocked but i still cant get it to work signals there but wont let me call or text im on 02 network


It could be a SIM card issue but you can try as my daughter did, take the battery and sim card out of your phone and let it sit for about fifteen minutes and the put your sim card and battery back into your phone and reboot it. When you reboot see if it will let you call or text, if it does not work after that take the phone back to the service providers store and they either need to give you a new SIM card or it is a technical issue with the phone and it may need to be replaced/repaired, if it is still under warranty I would go ahead and replace the phone and the sim card.

How do you set it up for at&t


You shouldnt have to do anything to have it call. Do you have you sim card insered correctly? do you have dual sim card option and if so make sure your card is not in slot tw and you are using sim 1 option. On the dual sim card phones SIM 2 is placed upside down against the circuit board, and SIM 1 slot is facing correctly chip is on down side, and slightly elevated off the circuit. on your front display you should see AT&T and the SIM card location it is in. You do however have to set it up to receive picture text and internet acess. I can hep you with that also
