    I got an iphone underneath my mom's name and it says she has an inactive smartship

    How do i reactive this smartchip and can I just stick mine in the iphone?

    Thanks so much for the help!

    Just put yours in the iPhone, and it should work since you are both on ATT...

    Otherwise, go into a ATT CORE store and get another sim to replace the current deactivated one

    Once the sim card is deactivated it can not be reactivated. Its a one time use thing.

    flip on a stick, i'm 100 miles away from my mom lol

    How would she go about doing this? walk in and get a new simcard and put her contacts on an old one and stick it in her phone?
