    Let me try by removing the battery for about 15 minutes - Get back on you later.

    Removing the Battery didn't work for me. Give another solution....

  • Isaac Kalua Jan 07, 2009

    Yes i did remove the Sim and reinstall but it didn't work out. I feel the problem should be technical ...

  • Isaac Kalua Jan 07, 2009

    The phone/card was/is already in 'unlock status'. Took it to some technicians and have failed. Some have advised me to find another board !!

    For me, this looks simple than actually finding another Nokia 1600 phone !

Remove the simcard and reinstall it... might have come unseated... also removing the battery for about 15 minutes may solve that as well.

My flip phone displays message "insert SIM" and


Hello.

You need to have a simcard. If you already have one inserted, then remove the simcard from your mobile phone, then reinsert it back. It is usually found behind the battery. If you are still having the same error, then you might need to change your simcard.

My Samsung star ii phone shows 'insert simcard error' message even when simcard is inserted.


Try to look for a rubber eraser and rub it on the simcard interface. Also, I want to ask if you have dropped your phone which may cause the error. I would also suggest you to change simcard if you get the same error message so we can identify if the problem is on your phone.

Samsung GT-S5233 ..my simcard is locked. i have the puk number but where to insert it.


Hello

Since your simcard is locked,insert your sim card into the phone and turn on the phone,allow it to boot up.

A message will appear on your screen saying "Sim card blocked please enter PUK (Pin Unblocking Key)..type in the PUK number this number will reset your pin code and you will be asked to create a new 4 digit pin for you simcard.

Good luck

Insert simcard nokia 7200


hi the only one thing you can try without replacing the sim card reader is do you know when you put the simcard in if you push on the simcard with your finger so your pushing it down onto the contacts is fold up some paper so that it put pressure onto the simcard when you put the battery on as alot of times the contacts dont touch the sim card properly so putting some folded paper on top of sim card pushes it down onto the contacts properly.
This solves the problem in most cases but it can be difficult to get right as if the paper isnt thick enough then it might not push it down hard enough to make contact.
If after doing this it still dont work then this either means the sim cards no good but you could try it in another phone or it could be that the sim card reader is not connecting with the board properly and would need replacing.
Make sure you check the contacts are clean on the sim card and the sim card reader to make sure this isnt problem.
If you have not tried the sim card in a different phone then it could be the sim card is no good.
Did this sim work in the phone before just in case the phone dont accept that network as you can get this message if this is the case.

Let me know how you get on and if you need further assistance ok
