I bought a BLACKBERRY 6230 off ebay and put my sims card in but it dont read it or maybe im doing something wrong, HELP


It could be that the phone is locked to a particular network and needs unlocked to use it on your own network.

If the phone is unlocked or is on the right network it could be that the phone has been blacklisted for some reason.

First I would try a few different SIM cards to see if it is your SIM card or the handset.

If it is the handset then contact the eBay seller for replacement or refund.

Isert sim card


Hi nay,

there's simple solution, first, take out the sim card and battery, then put it back again, switch the phone on, the phone will ask you "do you want to stay in offline mode?", click no. then you'll have your network again, if the message don't came out, then there's some probabilities.

1. sim card connector.. see those yellow (look like gold coloured mostly) pins that usually beneath your sim card if you insert it? probably when it's fall, it's bent, so your sim card mght not be well attached to your sim card connector. raise the feet (pins) of the sim card connector, so it became higher. so that you make sure your sim card is touched by all the pins. replace the battery and sim card, switch on again. mostly will help. but if not, try below steps

2. probably There's something cracked or broken from the body of your phone (inside), so your phone become loosened up - mainly at the screws(your sim card become not well-attached), so what you have to do, is take a screwdriver for nokia, and strengthened the screws. If it can't, try borrow 6630 of your friend, try your board (machine board) to your friend's 6630 body. If it doesn't work, then it means something on your machine board (component) is broken, not because it's just loose.

If you doesn't have friend that use 6630 too, or you feel it's hard to open your phone, look closely if there's any major crack on the body of your phone, if it does. go to any mobile phone sparepart or accesories shop, buy a new body and ask them to cahnge it (actually piece of cake, try it..) well if it doesnt work, there's nothing to lose, because anyway if you want your phone fixed, you're not gonna use it with a cracked body. (differ body and casing)

3. If you're sure none of above helpful, then it means , some component is broken. Usually it comes to SIM card connector feet (that is attached to your machine board) or the sim card IC, some small possibility is you UEM IC is broken, but in this case, i suppose not.

your sim card connector feet (attached to machine board) might be not well attached (lifted up) caused by the crash when you fell your phone down. so it just need to be reattached by solder. you need a technician for these. if it doesn't help, your sim card IC need to be replaced by a new one (this IC SIM CARD is make of glass, so it's so fragile), leave it to the technician, this shouldn't cost more than 10-20 usd i promise ^^

Good luck with raising the pin (the one that touch your sim card-don't be confused) of your sim card connector. Mostly will help ^^

if the sim is definately ok, Phone is faulty, blacklisted or not designed to be used in your region (eg gsm phone in cdma only area)
ask your service provider if your IMEI (type *#06#) is blacklisted, if so the previous owner has registered it lost or stolen or not paid there bill

have you taken this to your local phone store?

maybe you should go to one or any phone store near you which repairs phones, it shouldnt cost alot but maybe when it fell something in the sim reader has fallen.
does the little silver clip still hold the sim in?

Most users will think you got a phone virus but actually they aren't that harmfull. You need to check the card however. Try to connect it to a card reader at your computer or in another phone to see if your files are still there. If the files are intact, or if the card works properly (try to copy something to it, then copy same file back to the device) maybe the problem is with your phone. Try to reset the phone to factory defaults. Before that please save all important documents or contacts because this will erase them and put the phone in the same status as it was when you bought it. After you have reseted the phone try again to connect the memory card and see what happens. This way you will know for shure if the problem is related with the card or the phone. If something still doesn't feel right please feel free to post back. Also, please remember to rate solutions received throught this site ;) Good luck.
