I received an error message on my phone. What should I do?

You may be unable to send a picture or video message, or you may receive error messages if your phone is connected to the wrong network or if data is disabled on your phone. But don’t worry! It’s easy to fix. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Go to Settings › Wireless & Networks › Mobile Networks or Data
  2. Once there, make sure data is enabled.
  3. Go to Settings > System Update > Update Profile or PRL
  4. Select “Update Profile” or “Update PRL” (if you see both, please update both).
  5. Once selected, just wait a moment while the phone finishes updating. Some phones may restart at this point.

 


 

Why can’t I make outbound calls on my Q Link phone?

If every outbound call you make goes to customer support, your account may be blocked for one of the following reasons:

  1. You are out of minutes
  2. Or, your Q Link cell phone was reported lost or stolen

While your account is blocked, you will still be able to dial *611 or 911 at any time. Until you add minutes to your Q Link phone, or until your minutes are refilled on the 1st of the following month, you will not be able to make any other outbound calls or receive any inbound calls. You will also be unable to send and receive text messages.

To continue making calls and text messages with your Q Link phone, you can add more minutes now.
