Issue With Sim Card In An Samsung A127 phone

This is a prepaid phone and the money ran out on it back in August and when I went to add more money to it I get the message that the account has been disconnected. Also when I turn the phone on I get the following message " Smartchip not provisioned MM#2 "

 

What do I need to do in order to get this thing working again?

Your phone number was already deactivated. You will need to get a new SIM card, so that you can get a new number.

ilikewireless is correct. Your account has expired and your phone number did, too. Your current SIM card cannot be re-activated, so you will have get a new one somehow.

I see ATT offers one for like $6 through their store.  Would one of those work ?

Not really sure because it doesn't specifically state "GoPhone", but I think it would work. Worst case scenario, if it doesn't, you're only out $6.

There are GoPhone SIMs for sale on eBay for a little under $3.00

I'm thinking that the same type of SIM card is used for prepaid and postpaid phones. The type of account would be written to the SIM card at activation time - so I guessed.

Well I checked under the Compatible List and the A127 is listed so I might try that.
