Cell Phone Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

Ruth, I asked please, what is the phone number of the cell phone with the problem?

Ask Your Own Cell Phones Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have a new cellphone which doesn't work, either making or receiving telephone calls. Yesterday I communicated by telephone with customer service and an instore visit about a cellphone with that number which was lost on Friday, Feb 19th. There was an ancillary issue about a Smartphone which had been mailed to me by ATT on Jan. 29th. The old Smartphone has not been found. When I call that number, the call seems to go through and I can collect messages from it. I was instructed by ATT yesterday to purchase a basic phone and call ATT back to transfer the number. I did so today and spoke with someone whose name, I believe, was David. He said that he had activated my new phone and transferred the number. He also said that the new ATT monthly rate would be lower than I had been paying previously.
Cell Phone Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

Thanks

So the cell phone with this issue has phone number(###) ###-####correct? I just need to be sure so I can call it and see what happens Ruth

The cell phone I have in my hand has no response. Somewhere, there is a cellphone with(###) ###-####which has an answering machine that works. I have no clue as to where that phone is.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I could call ATT back to confirm my understanding of our call this morning. Would that be the easiest way to solve the problem? Or at least, part one of the problem?
Cell Phone Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

ok, I just called your number and it does go to voicemail, I just needed to confirm.

To be sure, have you put the SI card from AT&T in your phone?

Ask Your Own Cell Phones Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The SIM was in the phone when I received it from the merchant.
Cell Phone Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

ok, needed to ensure, then the issue is nothing to do with the phone, it is with the account on the servers.

It appears they are directing it to the wrong sim card.

You will have to call on 1(###) ###-####as it is not a phone issue.

Explain the phone is functioning and that any issues have been ruled out, it is on and ready but the calls go straight to voicemail and it cannot make calls indicating they are blocking it from the network. Either they will then refresh the account or replace the sim card if they see on the system as this at fault. But this is what you will need to do sorry Ruth.

I will though mark this question to never close, so any issues at all, let me know here this is no problem.

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
