Once you have activated your SIM, you should put the SIM Card into an unlocked and compatible phone, and restart the phone. In most cases, your phone should start working immediately. If it does not here are some troubleshooting tips for the most common errors.
“SIM Card not inserted” or “No SIM Card” errors
The SIM card was not properly inserted into the phone.
Wrong SIM Card inserted
The wrong SIM card was inserted into the phone. Sometimes the black Super LTE SIM Card is inserted into the phone when the white GSM LTE SIM card was activated; and vice versa.
“SIM not supported” / “Invalid SIM card” / "Network locked-emergency calls only" errors
This most likely means that the device is locked and cannot be used with our network.
“iPhone not activated” error
You are trying to use a newly activated SIM on an iPhone.
If the issue persists, please contact customer service.
“SIM card is not from Verizon” error
- It means that the device is locked and needs to be unlocked.
- The phone has been unlocked from Verizon, but the correct APN settings haven't been set, so the device can't connect to the network properly.
