SOURCE: INSERT SIM

It might be that there is some corrosion on the leads that connect to the SIM card. You can try using a soft pencil eraser on the leads to see if you can clean them up, being careful not to get any debris from it in the phone to avoid any future strange complications.

SOURCE: y blackberry keeps saying insert sim card when its

check that the sim card is clean and not damage din anyway. Also check the connections on the blackberry where the SIM goes.

If the problem persists then go back to your network provider and see what they suggest. If they cant help maybe contact blackberry.

I update my w880i software.now asking for "insert correct sim card"please Help me ,how con i solve it?


Hello Sir,
  • Error messageInsert SIM

Your phone has no contact with your SIM card. We recommend that you:
· Clean the connectors on the SIM card with a soft brush, cloth or q-tip moistened with any type of unflavoured, colourless alcohol.
· Check whether the card is damaged or worn in any way.
If your SIM card is damaged or does not work properly after cleaning, please contact your operator to obtain a new SIM card.
  • Error message Insert Correct SIM

Your phone is probably SIM-locked to a specific operator's SIM card. This is usually the case when you buy the phone from an operator. SIM- locked phones may be unlocked – contact your operator for more information.
I think that your W880i was unlocked by a patch before updating, and now, it's relocked because of the patch will disappear when you install new firmware.

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.
