    Htc/at&t straight talk sim

    I have an htc that has worked fine with my sim before I got new phone.....now when I put sim in it it has an X over the service bars.....I've done factory reset and now you can't call text or anything..... I can take sim out and put it in my Samsung and it works just fine. Can someone please tell me what I need to do?

    What is the brand and model of your new telephone? You might have bought a CDMA/LTE telephone or a CDMA world telephone which is not unlocked to accept domestic GSM SIM cards.

    this has worked for others clean the sim.gently with a pencil erraser make sure the erraser is clean.them contacts can build up a layer of film that can hinder contact between phone and sim.

    Is this the new telephone or the one that worked before? From your original message, it appears that there are three telephones involved if the HTC Aria is not the telephone you mentioned in your original message.

    You did a factory reset. Did you reenter the apn for Straight Talk? you get the "x" when it is trying to connect to the default AT&T.
