Dear ,
first you have to unlock this phone,If you have successfully unlocked your iPhone, you may have discovered already that the voicemail button doesn't do anything at all. It won't give you visual voicemail, but you can easily get the voicemail button to work using any carrier following these steps: 1. First, take note of what your voicemail number is with your current provider (for example, in Spain the Vodafone voicemail number is 177).
2. Click on the phone button in your iPhone.
3. Click on the keypad tab.
4. Tap the following code:
*5005*86*xxx# The xxx is the voicemail number, in our example it will read: *5005*86*177#
5. Tap call.
6. After a second, the code will have been set.
7. Tap now on the voicemail button and it will automatically call your usual voicemail service.


Cheerup and be Happy Always

My forst impulse would to be to take it to the place in whic you purchased it from. See what they know. If your phone isnt recognizing your sim card, then there is obviously a big problem. That is pretty much the whole phone. In many cases, the sim card is just faulty and can be simply exchanged for a new one.

How do I activate my sim number on my free phone


By inserting an active sim card, there should be no other activations required, unless of course the device is locked to a different carrier

I cannot get the internet to work on my LG Neon for straight talk


Can you still make/receive phone calls and send/receive text messaging without pictures? Do you have enough signal strength (3G or 4G bars at top) to get a good signal without roaming?
When I was in Greenville a while back, I had problems doing anything other than making/receiving phone calls (no internet, no pix). Ends up, AT&T simply had a very weak signal where I was at. I ended up switching to another phone and carrier that had better support in more areas.


I'd recommend calling AT&T cell phone support to also make sure your data (internet) and messaging (text&pix) plans are still active.
Of course, if you can't even make/receive phone calls, you likely have a more basic problem; your phone may have not been validated with AT&T yet.

In either case I'd recommend calling AT&T wireless tech support at 800-331-0500 (type 0 to get a live person) to help troubleshoot the issue with your phone. If you haven't received your phone number yet, you may need to remove the battery to provide them will more detailed info regarding your phone and sim.

I just bought a lg vu cu920 havent activated it yet question is does it need a sim card and activation to get to menu it didnt come with manual


From what I know, this phone is used through ATT, so Im assuming this is your carrier? If so, you will need to contact ATT for a sim card for this phone. If there is already a SIM card in the phone, you can contact att to activate you on that SIM card.

When sim is inserted it shows phone restricted.


This message comes up when your SIM card is not activated through your carrier, or you are using a SIM card from another carrier and your phone is not unlocked.
Try calling your cell provider to activate the phone with that SIM.

I bought the samsng sync A707 on ebay and everything works except can't make or receive calls. says Emergency calls only


 If the phone is saying emergency calls only it is because you need a registered sim card from a cell provider. So you just have to go and have the phone activated at AT&T or whom ever you are going to use as your carrier.

SIM


Knows the network that your phone is using (exa. T-Mobile, AT&T (cingular) etc..) before getting a new service from the carrier/network srvice. You need a working SIM card before you can make/receive phone calls.
