My Alclatel Idol 3 broke and I'm doing the mail-in repair thing. In the meantime I'm phoneless so bought a cheap feature phone to fill the gap - a BLU Diva Flex 2.4. Problem is, the Diva isn't recognizing my SIM card. The phone was bought unlocked from Amazon and Koodo's IMEI checker says that the phone should work.
The Diva does take full size SIMs and I'm trying to use a micro SIM with adapter. With the adapter, the phone seems to recognize that a SIM is installed but will only allow for emergency calls. When I switch from automatic to manual network searching the only network that pops up is Rogers. I've also factory reset the phone, turned airplane mode on and off, cycled the battery and SIM.
So. What am I missing here? Should I just go get a new SIM from Koodo for this phone? Time is precious at the moment. Are there other troubleshooting steps I can take?
Thanks in advance.
