sim and activation

2011-12-15, 19:44 PM

hi, i know this may be silly, but i cant seem to activate my motorola A854.

i know where the sim is supposed to be. ( ie, on the side of the memory card) however, it seems like there is a silver block to the back, preventing the card from sliding in. is this supposed to be there? am i supposed to slide it ontop of that? or is it not supposed to be there?

Also,  when i power on it tells me that a special call is needed to activate the phone service, and then listen to the instructions. no instructions come up, and the line just goes 'busy' then to try again. and the same thing happens over and over. 

i bought this phone for my husband for christmas. so please help!!
