    I did the reset settings, with no luck. i don't have access to another AT&T sim card to check the new phone. Does it matter that i have a pay as you go plan? I did research online line, and was told numerous times that that did not matter?

Hello,kindly contact your service provider it could be a network problem or probably your sim have been sim locked to the old phone.so for it to work perfectly with the new phone it has to be unlocked.so i solely advice you to contact your service provider and also the store you got the new phone from to confirm if it's not sim locked.there is no settings that an external body could offer you than you calling them for enquiries.

thanks for using fixya,

take care.

Ok, this is most likely due to the fact that your "Old" card, isn't 100% compatible, with that model phone, I would assume that some "Settings" may be slightly different form phone to phone. You need to put the SIM back into the "old" phone, and then reset that SIM, and ensure that any "Settings" that are phone dependent are NOT active. You see you "old" SIM card is remembering all the OLD settings, and is getting stuck, at some point. I have also had it where for whatever reason the cards SIM's just do NOT work, with some other brands of phone even within same manufacturer? If possible, also see if another SIM will work? As we really do need to "Prove" the "New" phone, ensure that it actually works, the ONLY way to do that is by using another SIM card, you have to get a "Know Good" until you have that you cannot determine what part, the SIM, Settings, or the Phone, itself, is the faulty "Bit". Please have a read of the manual, and reset the unit, and re-setup again.

Got a new 3g iphone..How can i transfer pictures & videos from pantech duo to new phone?


You will need to purchase a 2 gig or smaller micro SD card. The Pantech Duo will not read anything larger than 2 gig. When you insert your card you can go into your pictures, music, etc and click on the menu to save to "storage."

Bought unlocked duo c810. phone has call and text


Even though it is unlocked, you need to be with a carrier that provides 3g and have it added to your plan.

Pantech Freezes Up


I had this problem, and ended up having to do a Master Reset. If possible, back up any data on the phone prior to doing this because you will lose all contacts, etc.

You can perform the master reset by removing and and the Sim Card then re-installing the battery. Open up the slider and hold the S and L keys on the QWERTY keyboard. While holding these keys, turn the phone on. Continue to hold the S & L keys until you receive an 'error missing sim card' screen. (It still took a while to progress beyond the AT&T screen...don't give up...it gets through it eventually.) After you get the missing sim card error message, turn the phone off, remove the battery, re-insert the sim card, re-install the battery, and then turn the phone on normally.

It will now behave like a brand new phone, without any of the data saved.

PUK code


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.

Pantech Duo won't let me send Text Messages!


i have had this problem previously. sometimes it would work if i sent a message to myself. other times, i would have to just wait a few minutes, and then try again. also, i have made a call, and only then would my messages be sent. personally, i think this phone is horrible.

Unlock code


the unlock code should only be 8 digits long. before powering up the duo, you must have your t-mob SIM in, then power up and you will be prompted to enter the code. I unlocked one today, and it works, but I am having problems getting the t-mob SIM conatcs loaded to the duo's contact list.
