Hi All,

I got a new LG G3 today and decided to pop in my 8ta sim card..
When i switch it on, it asks for the pin code, and then "emergency calls only" and next to the signal strength icon i a little circle.


I got the phone from cell c, but i do doubt that its network locked, since it does at least ask for the sim pin, and does not tell me that the sim card is not allowed.

The sim card works perfectly in my s4(i9500)

Has any1 else had this problem before?
Do I maybe have to get a new sim card from telkom/8ta?

Any advice would be great.

This is normal. No phones are network locked bought in SA.

If you don't remeber the SIM PIN, enter it a few times incorrectly and it will ask for the PUK. Then call Telkom Mobile for the PUK.

Your S4 has saved the PIN and/or set to not ask for the PIN. No need for a new SIM.

Just some feedback..

Turns out that my 8ta sim card was old, and I just needed a sim swap.. working fine now..

Now just to convince telkom to get better reception in Brooklyn mall..im constantly roaming on the mtn network..
