MotoG4 Play Activation

I am replacing my old DEFY with a Motog4 Play. I set up the new phone; everything transferred, however I am unable to make or receive calls. A scroll message at top states No Sim Card - Emergency Calls Only. What steps did I miss.

Where did you buy the new phone? Did you insert the SIM card during activation?

Republic Wireless. I installed the SIM card. I believe it was done per instructions.

Try turning the phone off, and then taking out and re-inserting the SIM card, and then turning the phone back on.

See here for useful info about SIM card insertion

I did power down but was unable to get the SIM card out. However on re-exam it’s in correctly. I’ll take it to a local cell store & let them take a look. Thanks for your assistance.

Found site. It confirmed SIM in correctly. I’ll take it in. Thanks

Took phone to store & my mistake. SIM card was not installed correctly. My apologies to the community. Thanks for your time to help me.

No need to apologize @rashad! All of us Community members have had our fair share of “oops” moments!
