My 6300nokia mobile phone was not recognizing sim card

Hi, have you tried using different Sim Card to check if the issue is related to Sim Card.? These issues happen due to Sim Card chip has damaged inside. If the same error displayed even after using working Sim Card, try to insert properly or the Phone's Sim Card Slot pins have not conducting properly to the Sim Card, in this case Service might be required to the Cellphone.

It comes up with Insert SIM Emergency? What is SIM?

A SIM card or Subscriber Identity Module is a portable memory chip used in some models of cellular telephones. The SIM card makes it easy to switch to a new phone by simply sliding the SIM out of the old phone and into the new one. The SIM holds personal identity information, cell phone number, phone book, text messages and other data. It can be thought of as a mini hard disk that automatically activates the phone into which it is inserted.

A SIM card can come in very handy. For example, let's say your phone runs out of battery power at a friend's house. Assuming you both have SIM-based phones, you can remove the SIM card from your phone and slide it into your friend's phone to make your call. Your carrier processes the call as if it were made from your phone, so it won't count against your friend's minutes.

If you upgrade your phone there's no hassle involved. The SIM card is all you need. Just slide it into the new phone and you're good to go. You can even keep multiple phones for different purposes. An inexpensive phone in the glove compartment, for example, for emergency use, one phone for work and another for home. Just slide your SIM card into whatever phone you wish to use.

High-end cell phones can be very attractive and somewhat pricey. If you invest in an expensive phone you might want to keep it awhile. Using a SIM card, it is even possible to switch carriers and continue to use the same phone. The new carrier will simply issue you their own SIM card. The phone must be unlocked, however, and operate on the new carrier's frequency or band.

When it's not inserted properly, it displays insert .You will need to insert the sim card properly so that the message won't come up again..

Remove your sim card, wipe it with a smooth dry cloth and insert it again.

SIM Card not recognized.

the nokia 3110 is not a powerful device it will surely not recognise the sim because it contained the data which might be copied to the phone memory as well as the sim card so during the sim after being wet & dry was certainly not going to be recognized by the cell as its data was corrupted

when phones get wet they start to rust from the inside, unfourtunaly this is a long prosses and can take a few months but usually if the phone has got very wet they will not work propley again. they may work temperally but eventually it will probably be completly usless. in future if u wet a phone try drying it immediatly with a hairdryer, inside the battery bit too, this may help the water inside the phone not to cause rusting. sorry about your phone.

Insert SIM Card

make sure the sim card can make good contact with the phone.
Also check if it doesn't have space to slide, causing it to loose contact with the phone.

Phone doesn't recognize the SIM card

The sim card holder has a tiny slide mechanism. After inserting the sim card and pressing it against the body of the phone, place your finger over the card and slide it gently forward. The tiny plastic part that holds the card will snap it into place. Hard to explain, but it will work.
