I need to activate a sim card but keep my existing number

Hello, Dianne -

You do not state the name of your cell phone services provider.

If you can, take your cell phone and new SIM card to the nearest bricks and mortar store for your cell phone services provider and ask one of the employees to help activate the SIM card, using your current cell phone number.

Otherwise, you can choose Comment and add the name of your cell phone provider and the country where you reside, so that I or someone else can provide you with better direction.

Note: receives questions from people worldwide. I am answering from the USA.

Best wishes.

I have bought this phone together with a sim card, the problem is I can't find my number to! Please help. Where do I find my number?

The cell phone's number is provided by the cell phone service provider together with the SIM card.
If the existing SIM card is a prepaid SIM card you will need to purchase a new pre-paid SIM card from a cell phone service provider and a cell phone number will be allocated to this SIM card.
Purchase a cell phone plan with a cell phone service provider and you will get a new SIM card with an allocated cell phone number.

When switch on with sim card the phone sayscontact service provde

Hi there,

This problem sounds like it is to do with your SIM (Service Identifier Module) card, within your mobile phone handset, either this is because you no longer have this card activated, or you have encountered a problem with your contract. In the event that this is a PAYG (prepaid SIM) then just replace the small SIM card and hopefully you are able to use your phone. If on the otherhand you are using a contract SIM card, then you will need to talk to your service provider directly and sort the problem out. However, you could always change your SIM card anyway, and be donee with the matter.

One word of warning on this, you will probably have to tell everyone you know that you have had to change your mobile phone number, as the unique mobile number is attached to the SIM card as apposed to the phone handset. You could always find a cellphone provider that will allow you to keep your existing number, but, as your SIM card sounds like it is no longer active, the chances of you retaining your existing number are slim to minimal at best.

Now I am also an engineeer that keeps all possibilites of error open for investigation, so in this event, it is best to go to and check out the support pages for your phone and see what is said about this; just in case it is a problem with your handset. Better still, any high-street or downtown mobile phone shop will be able to query the matter for you and advise you in person of your next best approach.

I hope this is the fixya for you, and if there is anything that you have to ask or comment on, feel free to do so and I will respond as soon as humanly possible.

Many thanks for using the Fixya service,

Yours sincerely

When sim card is inserted message is

If your mobile handset is unlock to use this SIM card, and it is the first time you are trying to use it, this usually means that you need to call your service/cell provider Help desk to get your number activated on their network. It is quite rare, but the SIM card, especially if an existing card, could be defective: again, please call your Service Provider Help Desk.
Hope it helps and let me know how you go! Good luck!

SIM Card Registration failed, means your SIM card serial number does not exist in your SIM provider's Server.

Generally when a SIM not used for a long period (About 6 months or any fix duration by SIM provider), the company remove that SIM card serial number from server.
In some cases if your SIM is new then it might not be activated by company, so you can ask regarding this the customer care of your SIM provoider.
