The device should turn on even without the SIM card. I assume that you have done a "wipe handheld" action from the security options menu.

First try to take the battery out, leave it outside for 15 seconds and then put it back. In case this does not resolve the problem, you will have to relad the software using the desktop manager and application loader

T mobile touch pro 2 doesn't power on.


Take the battery completely out of it and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then install the battery and see if it will turn on normally.

SIM CARD NOT DETECTED


Please wipe the SIM slot clean... As well as the SIM.. This might sound odd, you may also try charging the phone for a while.. It works on me anyway

Blackberry Pearl will not turn on but light keeps blinking red


Do not turn on the phone again before taking out all trapped moisture. Take out the battery, sim card, etc. You will need to wrap each piece in newspaper, the phone and battery and then put in a rice container and wait at least 24 hrs. The newspaper and rice will eventually absorb the moisture. I hope this helps!

Screen turned white


Remove the back cover, Remove the battery, if the phone is GSM take the little card out of the back of phone by sliding the metal cover in proper direction. Should be arrows. Put the Sim card back in battery back in then turn phone on. If this doesn't work let me know. Main thing is reseating the sim card. (this assuming you a service provider that requires a sim card. )

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger


Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.
