Change MSID

Changing your MSID, otherwise called Mobile Station ID, can also fix the error if you were using the wrong one.

Contact service provider

If nothing else works, it’s time to call your carrier and describe the problem to them. After all, they’re in charge of the network and, in turn, your SIM. It’s pretty likely that your carrier will have some solution ready and will be able to diagnose your issue correctly.
