    All features working properly except that sim cards are deactivated including network provider.

    Wasn't aware that there's, I'm still hoping that I can still use this phone properly because this was just 4 months old from the time I bought it and then it retired in blink of an eye while I was texting my wife. The phone which supposed to be used in case of emergency put me to an emergency itself. If this is not a marketing scheme, this must be a marketing scam.
