Question about Sprint PPC 6700 Bluetooth Headset Headset

Phone locking up

I got a 2gb SD card and inserted it to the ppc-6700 phone after buying the phone brand new from sprint. It worked at first, then about 10 minutes later it locked up the phone. It does not allow for any buttom to be active or even receive calls. Nothing works. The only thing I can do is remove the SD card and then it works. What can cause this? Is the phone a defect or the SD card? What would you advise or what can be a solution. Have you heard of this problem with the phone.

Re: phone locking up

This is a common problem with the PPC6700. It is not your SD card. It is the phone trying to read from the SD slot and the card may be temporarily missing. This is due to the fact that the card does not "lock" in the cardslot properly. What i've done to fix my ppc from locking up (forever ago and I've not had the problem since) is put a piece of tape over the slot to secure the card.

I haven't had a problem since I've applied the tape and can't even tell I put the tape there anyway.

Insert sim

As far as I know.there are two possibilities to get this error..

1)Sim card not inserted properly:

Try to insert the sim properly..insert it at the desired position

2)Phone may be locked with a particular network:

If the phone is locked with a particular network then you need to unlock it.You can get the unlock service for your Blackberry 9360 Curve from either your network provider or third party unlocking service provider like, and remove the network lock. Once unlocked it will work with other networks.

3)Sim Problem:

Mostly this won't be in your case because the sim had been working fine with your previous Nokia mobile and also the phone gives the same error message when you insert other sim cards.

4)Hardware Problem:

There might be some loose connection give it to a hardware service shop and check.

My phone is locked to o2 i need a nck code

When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.

Puk code needed

the puk code has noting to do with the phone, its the protection of the sim card, that comes on when you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times. to get the puk code for your sim card your only option is to call your phone service provider they will give you the code.

if you have entered the wrong puk code wrong too many times you may need to buy / get a new sim card from your provider, and you will lose all the contents in the locked sim card.

the phone will work fine with another sim card.

W490 wont read memory card

Hi, sykko_one, I have the exact same phone and was experiencing the same problems. After about a year of using my phone and storing music, pictures, videos, etc. on my phone it would suddenly stop working. Sometimes it would work, and sometimes I wouldn't be able to save or read any data on the memory card. What I did to fix it was completely remove the memory card from the phone and used a micro sd Tinpec card reader, picture here. You want the one that supports micro sd. You can find them on ebay or amazon. Then connect your micro sd card to your pc with the adapter and right-click the removable drive (might be drive e: or f:) and choose format. Leave the default options and format the disk. Make sure you've selected the right disk. To verify this you can open the drive and look at the contents, it should have a folder called "moble." Go ahead and format the drive. Then use chkdsk.exe from the command line to check the disk for errors. Syntax will look like "chkdsk f: /f" or "chkdsk e: /f" (depending on the drive letter assigned to your sd card reader.)

If the format and chkdsk do not work. try just deleting all the information from the card and copying some pictures and music files to it. If these copy successfully then I would assume the problem is with the firmware on your phone. Take the phone to a t-Mobile store and see if they can't re-load the firmware. And don't worry about deleting any data from your sd card, it will not affect the phone in any way, it will just delete whatever pictures music files you have stored on the card. So be sure to back those up first before you do anything. Hope this helps. -Rogueelite

My nextel does not read my memory card

This same thing happened to me recently. My reader seemed to stopped working after I accidentally dropped my phone at work. I tried everything from formatting it to trying different memory cards and nothing worked.

I manually added the music files on my 1gb SD card at first and figured I should do it again and it didn't work. I then synced my music through Windows Media Player but that still didn't do the trick.

The solution in the end was to take the SD card out of the phone, turn the phone off, put the SD card back in while the phone is off, turn the phone back on, and then update your library. If that doesn't work you may have a faulty reader that came with some of the phone when they first came out.

Hopefully that helped...
