I just found a pop-up message on my phone saying that it was 'unlocked for UICC support' or something. I looked up the message on Google and people are saying that it can indicate a scam.
What does this message mean? Am I being hacked?
You're not being scammed or hacked. The UICC is what we used to call a SIM card. It helps identify your phone to the network.
You received this message because you paid off the phone and fulfilled your agreement with Sprint. As a result, Sprint has 'unlocked' your phone (also known as Domestic SIM Unlock or DSU) and has sent you a message to confirm.
Sprint will automatically unlock active devices made after January, 2015 when the purchase agreement is fulfilled, contracts are complete, and all requirements for Unlocking have been met. Once a phone is unlocked, it may be used on some other carriers, even foreign carriers, if that network is compatible with the your phone's build.
If you have completed your agreement and have not received the UICC unlock message, you may need to contact Care for assistance. Please see our Domestic SIM Unlock FAQ at the bottom of this article to ensure you meet all of the requirements before contacting Care.
For more information, take a look at our Unlocking FAQ page.
When sending a text message (SMS) to one particular contact, a user may receive the message: "Can't send message with CARD 1, error 107". Typically, this only happens with one contact, users can text and receive texts from any other number.
The contact information on your device and/or Google account can become corrupted, causing an error when you attempt to send an SMS.
Delete the contact from your device/Google account, including address book, call and text history as well as any voicemails from that number on your device
Restart your phone
Add the Contact back in to your address book and test again
You can attempt to text the phone number before you add back the contact, as well
If the error continues, please let us know.

In our efforts to provide you with great service, we are continually updating and modifying the Sprint IT Network. As part of a network upgrade, this device will no longer have the ability to reach Sprint provisioning systems for activation or roaming updates starting July 20th, 2018.
Activation activities and roaming updates are no longer possible. Devices that are already active will continue to work, but eventually may see service degradation in areas where roaming updates are required.

On the new powerful Galaxy Note 9, the S-pen is now Bluetooth enabled which allows you to remotely control different applications on the device. You have the option to single press or double press the S Pen button to initialize different functions and you can also customize the functions by following the below steps:
Some XP5s users may experience a recurring error popup stating "SSWLauncher has stopped" or "SSWLauncher keeps stopping".
Upon initial startup, a red "Sonim Built for Life" screen will give the option to "Skip" or "Start Provisioning". If "Skip" is selected instead of "Start Provisioning" the "SSWLauncher has stopped" error will occur.
This will be corrected in an upcoming MR.
When setting up the XP5s for the first time select "Start Provisioning".
If a device is already presenting the error is encountered, perform a factory data reset via the recovery menu to resolve the issue.
Please note, performing a factory data reset will remove all user data from the device.
To perform a factory reset:
Power the device off, remove and reinsert the battery if necessary.
Press and hold both the power button and the volume up button until a screen stating "No Command" appears.
Hold the power button and quickly press and release the volume up key to access the Android Recovery screen.
Scroll down to "Wipe data/factory reset" using the arrow keys on the dial pad.
Press the power button to select "Wipe data/factory reset". The next screen will ask to confirm the factory data reset.
Using the volume buttons, scroll to "Yes" and press the power button to confirm. This will return the device to factory defaults.
After the factory data reset is complete, using the volume buttons, scroll to "Reboot system now" and press the power button to confirm the reboot.
After reboot select "Start Provisioning" on the red "Sonim Built for Life" page to begin device activation.
