Can't make outgoing calls

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

3 weeks into a new simcard on an unlocked phone which previously worked with public mobile it will not make outgoing calls. Message 7B1 your phone is not activated on network.  Incoming work fine but with no caller ID.  Texting works fine.

I've restarted phone.  Put sim card into 2 other phones (same response)  Put another phones sim card in this phone, and it worked. 

It's a new public mobile phone number (no porting)

I've done airplane mode for a few minutes and left the sim card out for several minutes.    I've manually selected the network. 

I've had this problem with public mobile before and swapping the sim to a different phone and back fixed it last time (about 2 years ago) Samsung S10.  

I've tried to make a ticket but the login didn't work. 

I sent a PM but there's been no reply.

This phone is for my business please help I'm crippled currently. 



@Bobbijcpm  "This phone is for my business please help I'm crippled currently."


Hopefully sorted by now. Some potentially useful thoughts on this subject. 

After giving some thought to the issue of service disruptions, have concluded a residential phone service, cellular or landline, alone is not a good solution if you cannot tolerate several days without service. A business voip service seems to offer the best balance of dependability and price BUT I am not an expert just an interested bystander. 

Some reading:



STILL WANT PM for the price read through:

It sounds like there might be a provisional/backend issue with the SIM so you don't need to purchase a new SIM.

You have to be patient for a CS_Agent to reply back to you so keep your eyes on the envelope icon above in the morning.




Most customer service agent work:

Monday to Sunday: 6 AM to 10 PM EST
You might need to wait for tomorrow for response
Might want try a network reset of phone.  
Add 1 or +1 in front of area code
