Hello! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for your question. I'm Benjie and I can help you today.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

What's the make/model of the involved device?

Expert:  Benjie replied 8 days ago.

Since I didn't hear from you please try these general instructions.

What I could suggest you do is,

If you originally received your device from one network provider and your new SIM card is from a different network, the original network provider may have locked the device to their network.

Samsung, apple, etc does not lock any of its devices to any particular network. You will need to contact the original service provider or retailer to request an unlock code.

Some service providers may allow you to unlock the device for a small charge or for free, whereas others may not allow the device to be unlocked at all.

If I have not fully addressed your questions or if you have any follow-up questions, or if I have misinterpreted your questions in any way, please feel free to reply here. I'm more than happy to help you!
