It could be that the contacts between the phone and the sim card are dirty and therefore you will get the error code. take the battery out and remove the sim card take a q-tip with some rubbing alchohol and clean the contact on sim card and the phone itself make sure not to use alot of alchohol. let them air dry then re-insert the sim and battery this should do the trick. the error warning should go away and the phone will be abale to receive the contact info from gthe sim card.. please rate this

Hello Sir, My phone automatically gets restarted


The power offs may be from a defective battery, or dirty contacts at the battery and SIM card. The last cause would be from physical or liquid damage.

Says insert sim card when there is one in it


"Insert SIM" message is normally displayed on phones when a SIM card is not inserted on power-on or it does not detect the SIM card inserted.

Likely Causes:
  1. No SIM card inserted or inserted SIM card is damaged
  2. Inserted SIM card not positioned well in such a way as to make contact with the corresponding contact bridges on phone.
  3. Phone locked to a specific network and can only work on other networks when the firmware version is "flashed", that is completely changed to an unlocked version.
  4. The phone might be faulty (try with another good SIM, if you still get thesame message and its not one of the above reasons... it might be a transciever problem or the phone's SIM card slot's pins might be defective).
cheers.

Insert SIM Card


make sure the sim card can make good contact with the phone.
Also check if it doesn't have space to slide, causing it to loose contact with the phone.

SE K750i displaying 'insert sim' even though sim is inside.


This problem is due to your phone's sim card IC malfunctioning. It may get damaged due to phone dropping gently into rough surface and its crystal structure may break due to it. for any queries mail to mahesh_vr@yahoo.com

Use a blow dryer and dont put it to close and you more than likely need a new sim card for your phone.
