    I also had this problem. I took it to Sprint/Nextel and they told me the SIM card was bad and needed to be replaced. It would cost $50 to do so. This also caused my pictures to be deleated too.

  • nysf Nov 10, 2007

    My phone displays "Insert SIM card" even with the SIM inserted. Other SIM cards cannot be read by the phone either, so the problem is perhaps with the SIM reader. My SIM card is readable on other phones.

    My phone worked okay, sometimes it froze up, but that didn't really make a huge difference. Today, I opened my phone and it was frozen so I turned it off and pulled the battery out. After putting my phone back together, I turned it on and it said "Insert SIM card" and has said so for approximately 4 hours now.

    SIM cards are universal in GSM phones around the world. Unfortunately, the cards are so small that it is often difficult to ensure they are inserted properly. It can be very frustrating when your SIM card is already in your phone, but your phone is still telling you to insert it.https://www.gamehackerapk.co/https://gamekillerx.com

There is no problem with the sim card. The problem is the design. The sim card is held in by the battery and it has too much play in it. I took a small paper clip and put it between the battery and the bottom of the phone. This made the connection nice and snug. Haven't had a problem since.

Assuming you've slid the SIM card under the metal band with the gold contacts facing down, DON'T do what I did and push the card down under the sticking-out silver clip so that the card sits in the shaped recess of the SIM holder. The card should stay up with its top part sticking through the metal band and its bottom edge in line with the end of the silver clip, not slid under it. The user manual is very misleading! Hope it works.

Clean both edges of the phone and the SIM card and switch on. If it does not work, then the problem might be with the IC chip and it costs between 150 and 200 rs. This is because of either the phone might have fallen down or from the short circuit due to moisture

Dodong's solution - the eraser - actually worked! I would recommend using a new, clean eraser and rubbing it on paper a little bit before you clean the sim. Do it gently but thoroughly, blow it off carefully, and put it back in.

My problem was with my sim card - it was about 5 years old. Apparently the gold contacts on new ones are visibly differently shaped and the card requires less voltage. After weeks of intermittent "insert sim cards" the O2 shop diagnosed the problem and fitted me out with a new sim card (with the same number) in 10 minutes - all for free.

Hi i have a samsung SCH-W339 mobile the problem is i have inserted many sim cards but it displays limited service instead of displaying the sim name and i cant make outgoing calls neither i recieve...


1. Your sim card is not in the right position. Take out your battery and your sim card. Make sure it is in the right position. Also make sure no dust or dirt where the sim card goes. Put the sim card back in your phone and battery. Turn it on. See if the insert sim card goes away.

2. If it goes not, then you will need a new sim card. Go to your local service provider store to get a new one.

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


H2o, on the phone. It may still be saved. the only thing is that you may not have the tools to open the phone. the tools needed are a T-5 and T-6 for most V3. my best idea is to try to softly scrape the Sim Card reader Prongs/contacts. but please if you have never open a v3 don't try it. just take to your local service provider or to one of those guys with a accessories stand selling the face plate replacement @ the mall. they may not charge you anything .and cross your fingers so the micro resistors inside the phone did not fried, this happens if the phone was ON when it got water in it.
Hope this helps
Thanks
