Why you might not have Service
Verizon and AT&T uses a IMEI whitelist of determine if the model of your phone is a model they support. Officially, all Blackview phones are not on the whitelist. Officially, only phones sold by each carrier are on the whitelist. This means that you might not have 4G service, HD Voice or VoLTE support or maybe even no 3G Service.
On your AT&T/Verizon Account, there is sometimes a specific IMEI number tagged to your account. Your SIM card would expect you to use the same phone. If you put your SIM card into another phone, it might also not work.
In this tutorial, we will give you a secret Blackview Code that allows you to change the IMEI of your Blackview phone so you can potentially get it working on your network.
Try changing the IMEI to your previous phone
- Insert your sim to your older phone. Ensure that there is 4G and HDVoice.
