So, a common problem. Last flip whitescreened, so I picked up an ZTE from a big box store. After placing the SIM card into the new phone, shows "Emergency Calls Only". I've double-checked the account balancevia the website, and there's over $65 available.
Here's what I've done:
- Remove battery, wait 2-3 minutes, replace battery, restart
- Remove battery & SIM, wipe battery & SIM with dry electronics cleaning cloth, then reinsert & restart
Anything else? Pulling out hairs here... thanks.
Hey @QuirkyJoe ,
Welcome to the Community!
Can you confirm whether the SIM card was activated or not?
Also, are you connected to the Fido network?
