Once you activated your SIM and create a new account. You need to reboot your phone by powering it off then back on.

If you just purchased the phone privately then the phone is locked by Ian other carrier. You need to contact that carrier to have it unlocked.

Classic "Invalid SIM" and "SIM not supported" messages almost always mean the phone is locked. By whatever carrier originally sold the phone brand new out of the box.

 

Such a phone will only work with SIM cards issued by that carrier. Unless they unlock it or you buy an unlock for it.

 

If the phone was locked by Telus or Koodo then Public Mobile can unlock it, I think.

HI @Paiton_g19   you just activating a new account with PM?

 

Which provider you were with before?  was that phone used on your old provider without problem?

Did you try to put your PM sim card in another phone just to test?

@Paiton_g19 - did you complete the SIM card activation process? It can be found online here: https://publicmobile.ca/en/on/portal/activation

Once this is completed and you paid for a new plan, insert the SIM card and restart your phone.

 

If you have any issues, can you try your SIM card into another compatible device to see if services work?

 

If services still do not work, submit a ticket to CSA for assistance.
