No service-will not connect to provider, shows phone icon with a slash

I bought a replacement phone due to loss of my other one, it is used, but every function works, i have walked thru the steps with cricket to set it up and paid the fee to activate the service. the phone shows a icon at top of a phone with a line thru it. and says no service and will not complete a call. it shows my phone number in the memory of the phone since it was programed. i have tried changing everything in it i can think of digital to analog, automatic, no roaming, and mixtures of any combination i could think of and yet no service. i am still using my old number i had with cricket and wonder why it will not work, it is an identical phone as to what i had and lost.

Hi i cant get an internet connection and cant download apps either.

Since you just bought the phone, please take back to your cell phone service providers store and have them show you how to use your new phone to connect to the internet. This is what you're already paying for each month.

How do i connect to the internet on a samsung slider e2550 model. i nee a step by s

Connecting to Internet requires an active connection. That is depending on the active connection that you will be using for your mobile phone.
There are two options for getting active connection:*GRPS*Wi-fi connection
GPRS needs configuration setting from your telephone service provider.It can be provided to you and you will enter it on your phone settings manually. It can also be just sent to you via SMS and you just need to save it. If you are going to ask for these settings from your telephone service provider, tell them to send it to you via OTA (over the air) so you will just save the settings after receiving it.Once you have the settings for you GPRS, you will be able to use the internet but possible data rates will apply.
To connect to internet via GPRS:1. Select the web icon from you mobile phones icon.2. You will be asked about what active connection you want to use, select GPRS.3. Once connected, go to the address bar and enter the url/web address that you want to browse. then you're good to go but your mobile account credits will be the one deducted, there will be charges for browsing. This is depending on the terms and agreement that you have with your Telephone service provider.
For wifi connection:
1. Make sure that you have a working modem router in your premise.2. Turn the modem/router on.3. Select settings icon from your mobile phone.4. Select Wireless Connection or WI-FI connection.5. Select options, then select connect.6. You will be asked for the WEP or WPA key. This is depending on what is the security option that you selected in the modem settings. (for modem settings you can contact your internet service provider or OEM for the modem)7. If you are aware of your pre shared key, just type it in the password option from the mobile screen.8. Once connected, you can use the wifi as your active connection access.9. Select the web icon from you mobile phones icon.10. Go to the address bar and enter the url/web address that you want to browse. Charges for this kind of connection will be coming from your ISP (internet service provider).

Does your phone show signal sign ,service or logo?
can your phone check it account balance ? if any of these question is yes this means that your is in good condition

this means that your phone have loss it contact from the cell sensor that provider service from the service provider

then the way out to solve your phone problem is that you need to contact your service provider with a friend phone

I have a problem with my Nokia E72 which shows requesting divert status message every time I restart the phone and show a blue colored phone icon just above service providers name(Vodafone in)

This icon appears due to the app adv comm manager app that came in free with the device. go to that app and ensure that you keep no filter / off as your chosen setting. The icon will disappear.
read the entire guide on how to use the adv comm manager.

My screen reads "SIM not allowed MM#3", and in the upper right, next to the icon showing how many bars of reception I have, there is an icon of a phone handset with a red slash bar across it. I cannot...

This means you have no service in the place the phone is at.

You need to go somewhere where you get full service and try it.
power down,remove battery,replace battery, then see what it says when you are in a place that you would get good service.

Still have problem, go to your phone carrier and have them check the sim card and your service, it could be your shut down.

My iphone keeps buzzing and shows an icon of the ringer with a slash thru it it wont actually ring, just vibrates altho the ringer is on

"An icon of the ringer with a slash through it"?....Usually that means that the ringer is OFF.If you're sure that the ringer is in fact ON , then check your profile.If it's in the Silent or Meeting profile, the ringer is switched off by default and it goes to vibrate.

I have a symbol of a phone with a red slash through it HELP !!

HI. This is a no service signal. There are two reasons for this type of symbol. The first reason will be that your service provider has canceled your service for some reason. I would contact this provider for further discussion if this is the case. Secondly, this may be a severed internal antenna connection, due to a cold solder break between the board and antenna connection points. if this is the case, you will need to have this unit service asap, if possible.

**((A highly uncommon issue could also be that the NAM or PUK codes have been changed inadvertently. Although uncommon, this can happen by accident))
