A SIM card in a cell phone or smart phone is a small plastic card with circuits on it. This card holds the user's account information, which allows the cell phone service network to find and connect to the phone. It also contains the user's directory and such other stored data as photos, files and text messages. A rejected SIM card will cause the phone to malfunction. This can occur if the card is damaged, wet, dirty or dislodged.
1.Locate the SIM card on the phone. Generally the card is stored under the battery. You'll probably have to remove the back cover before you can slide out the battery. Be sure the phone is turned off before doing this. 2.Remove the battery and look for the SIM card. It is usually white or yellow with circuitry printed on it. Sometimes it has text on it as well. The card may be as small as a thumbnail. 3.Remove the SIM card, which is usually held in place by a metal clip. To unlock the clip, lift it up or slide it up or down. Gently lift or slide the SIM card up and out of the clip. You may need a pair of tweezers. 4.Blow around the area where the SIM card had been lodged to disperse any dirt or dust. 5.Look for any water, dirt or grime that may have gotten into the phone or on the SIM card. Use a soft cloth to gently wipe the SIM card, the battery and the area around the SIM card compartment. Make sure to use a fine cloth that will not tear or catch on circuitry and other metal parts. 6.Inspect the SIM card for damage such as cracks. If the SIM card appears undamaged, firmly return it to its home in the clip. The SIM card circuitry should be face down so that it is touching the metal connectors on the phone. Slide the clip back into place to secure the SIM card. 7.Replace the battery and any casing. Turn the phone on. If the SIM card has been cleaned and properly placed back into the phone, it should function properly. 8.Contact your cell phone service provider if the SIM card is still rejected. You may need to replace it.
is this happens to other sim you inserted on your phone...if still occurs it seems you have a loose simcard socket..or the copper contact itself miss a connection... try to clean your sim esp. the copper surface also do the same in the simcard slot.. put your sim and gently apply force or put a ply of paper on top of the sim and close the phone cover. turn ON your phone and check if the sim already register....nice day
Try power cycling for the phone. Please follow the steps below:
1. Remove the battery from the phone while it's turned ON. 2. Remove the SIM card. 3. Leave the battery and the SIM card out for five (5) minutes. 4. Put the battery and the SIM back and turn the phone ON.
If same problem occurs, try using another SIM to isolate the problem. If same thing happen after trying another SIM, then the phone needs repair. You may need to contact the manufacturer.
This error is not caused by any phone's internal error of failure. It is commonly a message given by the phone that the Sim is not connected correctly. In this case, first make sure the Sim is inserted correctly and fixed firmly into the slot. Also make sure that the Sim is fixed with the Metal Slot on the top to ensure total connection of the Sim with the phone. Try the above steps and reply me.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
I have had a new orange sim card for my SonyE W850i, however the new sim card isnt connecting to the phone (i think). I have noticed that the new sim card has a smaller 'chip?' on it. Could this be the problem. I have tested both the phone and the sim card on phones/ sims and they seem to work fine, just not when they are together. It seems as though they are incompatible (the phone is an orange make so there should be no problems there). The phone sometimes reads 'insert sim'. athough other times it works ok but then for no reason it breaks down to 'insert sim' again.
Hi this is a almost normal anomaly with sony ericssons - they get the "white screen of death" on a regular basis - on my w550 back in the day - exactly the same thing happened - after reflashing a few times it was back to normal - we are sony ericsson experts if you need it done
