I cant get my new cect i 9 to turn on
It sounds like you dont have the sim card inserted properly. slot to the meatl chip is facing up and all the wy down touching the circuit board. sim 1 slot metal chip is facing down and elevated the width of a sim card off the circuit board. If that doesnt work...
1.) Shut down the phone, remove the SIMS, and replace them back in the slots in the
correct manner again. It may just be that the SIMS aren't in correctly, not pushed far enough
into the slot, or their metal grid isn't making good contact with the SIM's slot pins. Try to
wedge a tiny piece of paper, placed against the side of the SIM without the metal contacts,
between the phone and the SIM so it makes the SIM's metal contact points fit up against the
phone's SIM slot contacts a little more snugly.
2.) Try just switching the SIM(s) to a different slot in the i9 and test again.
3.) Try the SIM(s) in another phone if you can. Though not happening too often, SIMs can go
bad, sometimes working erratically, and can actually be the cause of many odd issues which can
be very hard to diagnose the SIM as the true cause.
4.) Take the SIM out and clean the metal contacts on the back using an ordinary pencil eraser.
5.) Try to get yet a second or third SIM to try in the phone. The more the merrier ... well not
really but you never know, the more SIMs you try the more reliable the testing.
