Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Inactive SIM message may arise due to more than one issues. First things first check the hardware of your phone, to do this Put out the SIM card and check what happens. If it shows insert SIM card, its normal. If it shows the same inactive message then hardware malfunctioning.
Ok if the hardware is ok, then its simple. Inactive SIM means that your SIM card is not being able to register your Network carrier. The Phone with a red-line means SIM card registration failed. Although the signal radar works. This may be due to 2 issue; either there is a issue at the Service provider End, to check this call the service providers from other cell or land-line and check the status of your connection against this SIM Card No. If they say everything is ok. Then Its confirmed that your Phone is Network locked (Can only be used for one specific network) In this case coordinate with the seller.
I hope you will have a clearer picture now.

If you have any Confusion, questions or issues regarding your problem do tell me.

Cant unblock my sony erricson phone it keeps saying sim inactive


Could be two reasons: Your phone is already blacklisted (if bought secondhand the owner reported lost/stolen) or the phone is locked to certain network. And might be your SIM was deactivated (try it in different device if works).

Inactive sim


Did you buy your phone from someone? secondhand? Your phone is network barred it has been reported lost or stolen and the network has blacklisted the imei (serial Number) from getting onto any UK network, All the sims act differntly when placed in a barred handset some get signal but wont make or recieve a call and just make an error tone and some say "sim card registration failed" either way you phone is as good as a chocolate tea pot as the networks will not reverse the barring and the only other way to get the phone to work in the uk is to un-barr it which is changing the phones imei number which is illegal so that leaves you with one option sell the phone on ebay to someone abroad as the barr is only UK based
