My blackberry is saying sos when I put a sim card in it and dont know why


SOS means that the phone is only authorized for emergency type calls. Apparently the cellular carrier isn't accepting the SIM card you installed or it needs some sort of activation. Usually just swapping a SIM card from one phone to another is not enough to change phones within a carrier network. You usually have to contact the carrier as well and they do some magical mumbo-jumbo and then the new phone will operate.

Hi. If your SIM is under postpaid plan, telcos usually activate the SIM within 24hours. If your SIM is prepaid, you may have to call the vendor and ask for replacement. SIM with "registration unsuccessful or rejected" is either not yet activated or expired. If you get "Invalid SIM" that means either the phone is locked to other network or the SIM is not active. Since your phone and SIM are new, it is more likely that your SIM is not yet activated. Please call your vendor if SIM is still rejected after 24hr period. Thanks.

SIM CARD REGISTRATION failed, N70


Factory resetting the phone will do absolutely nothing with this problem

There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.

1, The sim card is turned off (is it Orange) if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.

2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.

3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.

I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message.

Phone locked


WARNING: ALL CONTACTS AND OTHER SETTINGS MAY BE LOST DURING THIS PROCESS!!!

Method:
Before you start, make sure the battery is charged and all security codes or PIN codes or watever are disabled so we dont have any code prompts interfering with this method.

1. Turn off the mobile phone.
2. Insert a "Non-accepted" SIM card (sim card that wont work) half way in so that when you turn on the phone, it still says "Insert SIM".
3. Turn on the phone.
4. Enter the following code and wait patiently for phone to reset:

*2767*2878#

5. Once reset has completed, the phone will still say "Insert SIM". This is where you need to push the sim card all the way in. You can use a paperclip or a tiny object to push it in if you have difficulty. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE PHONE REMAINS ON AT THIS STAGE (TRY NOT TO LET BATTERY FALL OUT) IF BATTERY FALLS OUT, DO NOT PANIC, JUST START FROM STEP 2 AGAIN.
6. Enter the following code and wait patiently for phone to reset:

*2767*3855#

7. After reset is completed, SIM should work and also the reception. Don't get excited, its not unlocked yet.
8. Now we want to make it permanent. First check what locks need to be deactivated with the following code:

*#7465625#

------------------------------------------------------------------------
a)
If Network Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "Network Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*638*00000000#
Message should be "Network Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
b)
If Subset Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*782*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "Subset Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*782*00000000#
Message should be "Subset Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
c)
If SP Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*77*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "SP Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*77*00000000#
Message should be "SP Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
d)
If CP Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*27*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "CP Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*27*00000000#
Message should be "CP Lock deactivated" or similar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
e)
If SIM Lock is "Active", put in the following code:

*7465625*746*00000000*00000000#
Message should be "SIM Lock has been personalised" or similar.
Then:

#7465625*746*00000000#
Message should be "SIM Lock deactivated" or similar.

SIM card not installed


Same thing happened to me. This happens when the phone does not get reception. When that happens the phone goes into no service and says "sim card not installed". The solution is to take out the sim card from your iphone put it in another phone and make a phone call. Then take the sim card out and put it back in the iphone and make a call. At first you will see it will still say no service, but when it says calling you will see that after a while (6 or 7 seconds) the bars come up and it will display your carrier name.

Samsung t219 connectivity issue


Codes are individual to IMEI. If you are able to pick up signal using the unlock code you found then you did it properly. I would suggest you contact the carrier for the SIM card that you bought. They may have activated a defective SIM that is not connecting preoperly.

No reception? HELP??


It sounds like your phone is not unlocked. Did you get the phone through a different provider and your sim card through some one else? For ex, here in US, a cingular SIM will not work in a Sprint phone.
