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

Always show the message 'insert sim card', When I refitted the SIM and turned back on, I had no network coverage. it always again n again n again..


Hi,when a phone does that, it means that the memmory of the phone is malfunction and it needs to be restored..
To be able to restore back the phone memory, you will need to flash the phone memory.

The links below will give you a guide line on how to flash the phone memory .

The v3 keep askin for my sim card but the card is in what can i do


Turn off the phone
Remove the SIM card
Wipe the metallic portion on the back of the SIM with a cloth
Put the SIM card back in
Turn the phone back ON.

If this did not resolve the problem, try using another SIM card so that you could verify if the problem is the SIM card or the SIM slot.

Have a great day!

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.
