I have activated metro pcs sim. Unlocked blu studio g2 6.0 will not detect sim wtf?

I got the same case, when I turned off the "airplane"mode, it did not want to read the sim cards. I reset it, with hope of having it repair, without success.

The phone was in perfect conditions until then.

The saddest part is that BLU customer service, if anyone can call it this way, is zero. Nobody replied the emails with a name or answer them in a consecutive order. The question you the answers that were already previously given.

Nobody anywhere, including BLU's site shows how to insert a nano SIM so that the thing is detected. This sucks. M-F support... a bunch of useless unboxing videos. Zero help. And I'm a software guy. I get around devices all day. Dangit.
