Re: SIM Card Register

As it has a SIM Card already it is most likely a GSM phone. Only T-Mobile and AT &T run GSM systems in USA. If it's a Post paid account then you would need to get your friend to transfer the account to you.
Normally GSM phones purchased direct from AT&T or T-Mobile will be locked to their system, ie: so you can only use a AT&T SIM in an AT&T phone and a T-Mobile SIM in a T-Mobile phone. But a way around that is that you can go on line and get the Phone "unlocked" for about $25, then you can put in a SIM from any GSM system US and Worldwide and it will work 99.99% of the time.

Probably easier to open a POST PAID account and they will give you a new number & SIM. Advantage is lots of minutes included every month, but need to sign up for a year and need a credit check.

Or if you want to use pay as you go/ PREPAID account instead just go along to any AT&T store and just buy a SIM, you will get a new number.. Advantage is its simple, no contract or credit check its "pay as you go" so you cannot run up a expensive bill. Downside is you pay per minute and if you talk a lot that can end up costing a lot more than certain monthly plans. if you don't ad money to the account after a certian amount of time the minute can be lost, and eventually the SIM will become disabled. New SIM then its a new telephone number.

Sph-d710 purchased used. How can i register it and set up an account so I can use Virgin Mobile for my carrier?

To register it for yourself you will call virgin and let them know your phone number. If you are using an old sim card already registered to you then you will already be registered. It is the sim that has to be registered not the phone
iF YOU HAVE NOT REGISTERED JUST CONTACT THEM BY DIALING 789 IN THE UK and you will be connected to an agent who can help you set up a contract.
It is very straightforward to do

SIM card registration failed

There are several reasons that can cause this problem.
Sim card registration failed means it has been locked out by the service provider. Did you buy the phone NEW? If so take it back they will exchange it.If you bought it used, it has been reported lost or stolen before they sold it to you.
It is also possible that the "registration failed" message could be caused by a faulty SIM card not being correctly read by the phone.

Check if that SIM works in another phone (either an unlocked phone, or one that is on the same network), and also try another SIM in your phone - this would tell you whether the SIM or the phone is at fault in your case. A faulty SIM is an issue for your operator, a faulty phone would have to be repaired at a service point.

In countries like India, you need to register your SIM card. The cell phone company blocks the SIM if they don't receive the application within few weeks of activating the phone. Please check if this is case.
Take out the SIM and test it with a different phone, if the phone fails to read the SIM, get the SIM replaced. Few days ago this worked for a friend with a brand new Nokia handset here in Lagos, Nigeria.

Inative sim when i turn my phone its a w995

you can try the SIM card in another phone this will help to establish if its a phone fault causing a problem this may be a network delay rather than a fault. When we register a SIM card on the network they normally come on within minutes but sometimes there's a slight delay and at the moment we are experiencing some network delays. It could take up to 24 hours to register your new SIM but I'd recommend running a hard reset now and then:

  • With the phone switched on take the battery cover, battery and SIM card out of the phone
  • Replace the battery cover and battery without the SIM and switch on
  • Once the phone has fully loaded switch off the conventional way
  • Reinsert the SIM card.hope this helps

My daughter has a motorola phone and when i try to put credit on it it says the phones not registered and to call them but cant as theres no credit!How do we register the phone please ?

you will need to register your sim card on line or in the phone shop that your sim card is from (if it is from vodafone then take it to a vodafone shop, ect) you will have to do this otherwise you will just keep wasting your money, keep all the credit slips that you have bought and take them with you and explain to them what you have paid for.
