Samsung model SGH-t159v says no sim card but the sim card is in an inserted correctly


Try sim card someplace else - if it also does not work then the card is bogus. If works, then something is wrong with your initial device.

Or maybe your phone is only designed to work with certain carrier sim cards and phone has to be unlocked to work with other carrier.

My phone stop working until it appears on the screen insert sim card..how can i get off on this? tnx


1) try to use another SIM card, maybe the SIM card itself have the problem. 2) or use other network SIM to make sure that you're phone is really working. 3) if still not working maybe you're phone is dead set.

Phone is saying insert sim but it is already inser?ed


That means that your sim card is either not capable with this phone or that the sim card is broken.

One question: when did you get the phone?

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 ^^

I have a motorola razer cell phone that has been working fine. today i had just talked with some one on it and it diplayed INSERT SIM i have tried taking battery out and sim card and re-inserted it...


I had this same problem with my razr adn I hated that phone because of it. Make sure the sim card is pushed in all the way. Clean the contacts on the sim card itself (you know the gold parts) and make sure the contacts where it meets the phone are clean also. Make sure the metal part that holds the sim card in is securing the card close to the phone and it's actually making contact.

It always just took some fiddling like you are doing to get it working again, but the problem never went away. Do you have insurance on your phone? Maybe you can replace it or upgrade it based on which plan you have and which provider you use. I would never buy another razr because my husband and I had about three of them total and they always had glitches.

Even if this doesn't solve the problem, I hope it makes you feel better to know that you are not the only one feeling the pain!
