This issue can be caused due to 2 probabilities.
1)Bad sim-contacts: The sim consists of about 8 pins that need to make contact with those in the phone. If these contacts are dirty/damaged you would get that message. Please insert another sim and check if it works. If it does then you have a bad sim and you can request a duplicate sim from orange for a small price.
2)Bad phone contacts: Try what I have told above. If it doesn't work then the contact pins in the phone are damaged. This can be due to loose solders and a variety of other reasons including oxidization(very rare though). I would suggest you get the phone to authorized service personal if this is the case. Any attempt to do it yourself there by tampering with the phone may render your warranty void. Infact I have taken to mobile repair after motorola had refused to repair and old phone coz a friend of mine tampered it trying to fix it. Please let me know if you need to know anything else.

Hope that helps,

Have on screen message inative sim pic of phone with bar across it on top line sim works ok other phone

Your SIM maybe of the older variety that does not work in many of the newer handsets.
Contact your network provider and ask if this could be the problem and if so could they send you a new SIM card.
They will usually do this FREE of charge. :)

Inative sim when i turn my phone its a w995

you can try the SIM card in another phone this will help to establish if its a phone fault causing a problem this may be a network delay rather than a fault. When we register a SIM card on the network they normally come on within minutes but sometimes there's a slight delay and at the moment we are experiencing some network delays. It could take up to 24 hours to register your new SIM but I'd recommend running a hard reset now and then:

  • With the phone switched on take the battery cover, battery and SIM card out of the phone
  • Replace the battery cover and battery without the SIM and switch on
  • Once the phone has fully loaded switch off the conventional way
  • Reinsert the SIM card.hope this helps
