LG Xenon- no service?!

Hi,

 

I upgraded to the LG Xenon GR500FD from a Razor. The sim card was transferred by the customer-service person and the LG phone was functional and fully charged. Yet, I keep getting the message that there's no service/connection. Why is that?! Is it because the sim card is not compatible? What is wrong?! Please help!

Just went to the Fido shop. The salesperson said that my sim card is actually quite new and should be compatible with my new phone. She found it strange that there's no service. The problem was fixed when she reset/restart the phone. Thanks for all the help though =]

most likely your sim is too old.....but to be sure

 

test 1 : know anyone who just recently activated a new sim with fido....have them place their sim into your handset...if connection to network..then you know the answer

 

test 2 : go to a fido pos and have them place one of their demo line sim cards into your phone and perform same test

 

IF in the end it is your sim card and you have to swap sim, be sure to back up your contacts on your old sim ! 

 

Note : I've heard to SIM CARD reader / write that can transfer contacts from one sim card to another ( not sure if applicable to microSIM )

yes sim card devices can copy contacts, but any gsm telephone can copy them too, i use my old nokia to copy contacts from sim to phone then back to new sim.
