Hey there, Cocobby90! Can you please remove the SIM card and rub the metal plate on fabric then place the SIM card inside the device?

Really sorry to hear that, @Ledwards0103! Let’s check this thing out. Does your phone say Invalid SIM card? Have you tried removing the SIM card? Can you please let us know the make and model of the phone?

Oh, I see! We'd like to confirm, is the iPhone X a Boost Mobile phone or did you get it from a different carrier? If a Boost phone, is the SIM card the original one that came with it?

No it was an unlocked phone never had a carrier with it besides Boost.
