For protecting and finding back your lost phone, I would recommend an app called LEO Privacy. You can use your preserved number to send the commands to your lost phone and then find it. LEO Privacy Applock Hide Safe Android Apps on Google Play

I have a hacker on my phone right now-LEO Privacy. If my phone were stolen, it would lock all my apps and delete all my personal informations. I can also track my phone and even take photos to the thief if he tries to open apps with wrong password. And the Police will visit him very SOON!!!

CDMA phones work off of the serial # of the phone. Unfortunately, if the phone is not able to be activated, it is because either the previous owner has a past due balance on the account or the phone has been reported lost or stolen. This is tracked on a network level with the service provider. The only way that can be resolved is if the original owner to which the problem is assosiated contacts the service provider to resolve. Either say they found the phone, or pay the past due balance. Until then, the phone is useless to you. Sorry for the bad news.

Tip

Phone displays "SIM card rejected" or "SIM card unaccepted".


The SIM (subscriber identity module) card is a small card inside your phone that establishes a network connection. The SIM card is provided by your operator or service provider. In most cases, they are the best source of assistance with SIM card problems. Your phone may display a SIM card error message if:
  • The SIM card is out of alignment. If the phone has recently been dropped, bumped, or opened, the SIM card may need adjusting. Follow the SIM card installation instructions in your user guide.
  • The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code is entered incorrectly multiple times. This can inactivate the SIM card. If inactivation appears to be permanent, contact your operator or service provider for a new SIM card.
  • You have recently changed service providers. In this case, either your SIM card or your phone may be configured for your previous operator and may require reconfiguring. It may also be that your phone is configured so that it cannot be used with a SIM card from a different operator or service provider. Please contact your current operator or service provider for assistance.
If none of the situations above apply and you continue to receive this error message, your SIM card may be damaged. Please contact your operator or service provider to have the SIM card tested and/or replaced. Or alternately, bring your phone to the nearest Nokia Care point for inspection

I am trying to use the sim card and my current payment plans with boost on my old at&t phone that i got unlocked, but i need to know how to make that work..


the sim card is still tied to the previous service provider
get a new sim card from your new service provider
keep the plastic card that the sim card is attached to as there is the PUK code that you will need to open the phone stamped on that plastic card

My phone reads, "SIM CRASH" on the home screen, what should I do? I have tried unlocking the phone but that doesn't work.


OK

Sim crashes means the sim card that was put in is programmed to another phone. Basically you need a virgin sim card then activate service for the phone with that puk code. Unlocked simply does not cut it these days anymore, because of theft the manufactures of the sims are interducing a new method to simply lock people out.

The fix. A new birgine sim card.
