  5. SIM cards and SD cards are not the same thing and...

    SIM cards and SD cards are not the same thing and each one has a separate function. SIM cards don't have sufficient memory/storage to retain phone contacts and that's it. No need to debate it or...

    SIM cards no longer store phone contacts. It is a method for the cellular carriers to identify the phone and store roaming lists/profiles as well as a security method to protect users from having...

    What most people don't realize is that the SIM card measures memory by the Kilobyte and not a Megabyte or Gigabyte. The SIM doesn't have enough memory to store phone numbers anymore. Phone numbers...

    I am fairly certain that model supports LTE/VOLTE. I suspect that there is a broken antenna connection somewhere inside the phone from the OP's description.

    Metro might have to reset your VM box feature and re-send the speed dial # to your "1" key on your phone. I used to be a CS rep for At&t postpaid for several years and occasionally had to do this...

    I suspect that Convairbob's VM may not be setup correctly in the carrier's system or the stored speed dial # assigned to that key is incorrect.

    In the more than 2 decades that I have had a cell...

    According to that link, I stand corrected. I thought it was 12 months.

    You should contact Cricket Wireless next.

    If I knew the process on an iPhone and the correct APN, I would have offered the OP more help. I was hoping the community could help the OP. I confess that I am...

    I believe the issue is that the phone must be active for at least 12 months before it can be unlocked.

    Just curious, have you turned the phone off and back on to see if it still happens? Funny as it may seem, that is the first step in troubleshooting such issues.

    I agree with this. As I understand it, 5G and 4G work hand in hand and 4G is not going to be discontinued anytime soon. A "5G SIM" will still work on a 4G network. A SIM doesn't merely make 5G...
