Re: PAYG SIM not valid in NOKIA 130

Good evening @Readicus

 

Welcome to the forums and thank you for taking the time to post. 

 

I am sorry to hear that you have had some issues with your sim.

 

Did you buy the handset though us or was this via a 3rd party? 

 

Kind regards,

Zak_M

Hi Readicus,

 

Thanks for coming back to us, as the Sim works in your previous phone it may be a issue with the new Nokia you purchased from eBay, are you able to try the Sim in any other handsets or any other Sim in the new Nokia?

 

Regards

 

Paul.

Must say it is sounds suspiciously like the phone is not unlocked to all networks as stated on Ebay

Hi @Readicus

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

Did you try restrating the phone  before checking with the O2 SIM card? As sometimes it takes a restart for the SIM card to be picked up by the device itself.

 

Please do let me know.

 

Kind regards,

Serena
