My phone says In Airplane mode, but replacing SIM card did not help?

I have a refurbished tracfone-ZTE Model# Z716BL. We tried master reset on many occasions and new SIM card. The phone still comes back with a "turn off airplane mode when trying to make a call.

SOURCE: airplane mode

I have found that if you press and hold the power key when turning on the phone, it can activate the airplane mode. Try to press and release it when turning it on to stop this problem.

SOURCE: I have droid phone. Says

1. Press and Hold the Power button for 2 Seconds. A menu pops up. On that list, you will see "Airplane Mode" (under which should state "Airplane mode is ON").
2. Now tap "Airplane Mode" to switch it Off. If you press the power button again after a few seconds, it should now say "Airplane Mode is OFF". This is how you want to leave it. Done.

Need to know how I order a sim card for my cell phone

Hi there!

The ZTE Z717VL Citrine LTE is specifically manufactured for Tracfone services. You'll need yo contact your service provider to get the SIM card even if you contact ZTE they'll redirect you to the service provider.

A lot of tracfone handsets have no sim card at all. Call Tracfone or go online with them to get a resolution to your problem.

I got the phone from a friend, did a factory reset. then turned it off and plugged in my T-Mobile sim card then restarted it. it picked up my sim card and contacts but will not let me call, no signal.

It may not be compatible with you sim. If you have t mobile as your carrier then it won't work with tracfones. the IMEI is set to tracfones network and not on t-mobile's networks. You could have your friend call tracfone and see it they will unlock the phone. As long as your friend had complied with there terms of service they might unlock it for him. Then you should be able to use it on t-mobile's network. Also check your apn settings.

Zte instructions

Hello John/Felicia Hamilton,
There are a multitude of scenarios that can cause your phone to "lose service". I have found that the most productive way to restore cellphone service to you device is to simply go into your setting, set your device into "airplane mode", count to 20, and turn airplane mode off.
If this does not work, attempt to remove your sin card (Only if it is easily accessible, if it isn't then please do not disturb your Sim and cause any further damage.) Once the Sim is removed, count to 10, and reinsert it.
If neither of these work, then your SIM card reader could be malfunctioning, and is no longer able to render your sim. Or, your SIM card is worn and no longer able to render your service.

How to remove message saying "emergency calls

If "Airplane Mode" is activated, this could happen, otherwise there's no other settings to deactivate or activate the offline mode with this Model. The "Airplane Mode" is under Settings, make sure it's Off.

You can also check the Network Setup under "Settings" and make sure "Automatic" is selected.
I would also recommend you to try with another sim card. If the same problem persists with another sim card, try resetting the phone "Master Reset". There are two options to reset your phone, 1. Master Reset and 2. Master Clear. Master Reset will reset every the phone settings to factory default while Master Clear will reset the phone as well as clear all the data from the phone and will restore everything as it was when you bought (as a new handset).
To do Master Reset, open "Settings" then "Initial Setup" and "Master Reset", you'll be asked to enter the security code, type in 1234 and proceed, if 1234 doesn't work, then use 000000 (6 zeros).
Note: if you have changed the code, you should use that.

Even resetting doesn't help, then there must be Network Problem with your phone, perhaps, the Network IC. In rare cases, Antenna causes this issue. Or sometimes it's related Software. All these are to be checked/done at Motorola Service Center or at local Mobile Repair Shops.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
