Talk to your cell phone provider ( Verizon/ Sprint etc.) to see
what exactly is going on. They may be able to fix it for free or at least point you in the right direction.

SOURCE: keep saying insert SIM card

You are trying to use a SIM from another Network or Handset but your phone is LOCKED to your old network and/or to a specific SIM card and number: this is why it is asking you for the unlock code to remove the restriction. It you are no longer under contract or obligations (such as minimum total recharge amounts for apre-paid handsets), then you could try to request the unlock code from the original service provider of your handset.
As for asking to insert SIM card, make sure that the SIM is correctly and securely inserted in your handset SIM holder. Also check that the SIM is still functional by inserting it in another handset: SIM card can be permanently and physically disabled if you attempt to enter too many consecutive invalid codes (usually around 10).
Hope it helps and good luck!

I woke up one morning to my phone saying invalid card. I haven't ever taken the sim card out and nobody else has either. Could my sim card just stop working and why? What can I do to fix it?

Yes, the sim card can just go bad. Simple fix. If you take it to your provider they will replace it for free of charge and you will be up and running again.

I just bought this CU515 about a week ago. Last night I charged it, and it was fine. When I woke this morning I accidentally turned it off, so I pushed the button and it looked as though it came on. ...

hello there....
1)....try to remove the battery and the sim which should be place proper in the phone....just take it out and insert is again and do the same with the battery...make sure that the sim card is registered with your network provider .....SIM needs to be activated

to register you should
moz-screenshot-2.jpgmoz-screenshot-3.jpg2) need to call the customer care of your network provider and ask them to register and activate your sim card is free...just keep the model number of your phone number handy (you will find that on the box in which you got the phone)...or the IMEI number (15 digits mostly) by dialing *#06# on your phone or beneath the battery or on the box near bar code....and your sim card number (19 digits mostly)on the back of your sim card the little chip that you put in your phone

that should solve the problem.....

you can also ask the for some freebies text message ,photo and videos messages ...many companies promote them....always good to try something for free before you start using it

now try Step 1 first..........

hope this help

Phone is about 4 months from new, recently been experiencing no sound. Vibration works ok but no sound. Took out sim card, cleaned it, put it back, nothing. Turnrd phone off before bed, turned on again...

some sound devices on mobiles are really bad on mine you somtimes have to give it a good shaking to make it start working again and try getting a wipe and take off cover where your speaker(s) are and clean without getting them wet
its probabily will work
