Sim card activation on a previous phone


Sim card activation on a previous phone

A Samsung G570M was bought through an AT&T agent, then the screen broke so another phone was ordered, it came with a SIM card that was discarded, until now that the screen of the samsung phone was replaced.


How can the SIM be activated? It's on the device but phone number is unknown and calls don't come out.

Hi, @dronit,


We're here for you. Take a look at the steps on how to activate your SIM card. If you need some help or if you find you need a new SIM card, an AT&T Store should be able to take care of you quickly.

Move the active sim card back to the other phone.
