Hi there,

This can happen if the SIM card is not detected by the phone.

Try removing the SIM card and cleaning it, or test the SIM card in a different phone.

If the SIM card does not work in any other unlocked phone then it is not active, and will need to be activated by the provider.

Ok, then the SIM card is not active, and will need to be activated by the provider.
