It looks like the SIM is not compatible with the J3. The SIM from the s5 should be CZ4112LWR. The J3 uses CZ4114LWQ. You'll need a different SIM.
I have a similar problem. I have been told that my number is being unlocked. But when try to use it another SIM it says invalid SIM. Now we are back in India and i like to use the phone with local carrier here. Please help me out.
Hi @RedCruzr_Sprint ,
Are you mentioning about the size of the SIM cards (SIM vs micro SIM)? I know that the SIM cards in both phones have different sizes, but I have the adapter to use in the phone with the bigger SIM card.
Or are you mentioning about CDMA vs GSM SIM cards?
In summary, what I want to know is: if my phone (J3) was unlocked by Sprint, can I use it with other carriers SIM cards (any GSM or CDMA technology), considering that I use a SIM card size adapter?
Hey there. I completely understand how important it is to have your phone. Since you're in India, our unlock signal wouldn't be able to reach you. Whenever you get back to the U.S., I would be more than happy to submit a ticket and get your phone unlocked. Here's a link with some info regarding our unlock policy https://www.sprint.com/en/legal/unlocking-your-sprint-device?ECID=vanity:legal_unlocking
Im having some sort of issue i have the sprint samsung j3 6 it let me put my tracfone simcard in there it worked for like 2 or 3 days and now its saying invalid simcard but when i put my tracfone sim back into another phone its still working is there any way this could be an unlock issue i didnt know if sprint blocked it or something
I need to check the IMEI, to see if the phone is showing that it's locked. If so, I would have to submit a ticket to fix it. I'm sending you a PM now.
I have samsung J3 Emerge bought from Sprint and used it for at lease 5-6 months. After that I moved to other network and Called customer care to unlock the phone(sometimes in Dec-2017). They took the request and said that the phone will be unlocked withing a week. After that when I called they say that phone is unlocked But Still phone is looks unloacked. It shows "Invalid Sim" when I use other sim card. I read unloack requirement policies and which all I met. Please help me to unlock the phone
I have a similar problem. I have been told that my number is being unlocked. But when try to use it another SIM it says invalid SIM. Now we are back in Venezuela and i like to use the phone with local carrier here.
When I select UICC Unlock i got message: Internal error (407). Profile update cannot be completed.
I would like to check on a couple of things with you. Were you a Sprint customer and this was the phone on your account? Do you still have a Sprint SIM?
