May be you lost the validity of the SIM.
If it is there restore it to factory settings and try again.

You have to call the provider and just have them activate the IMEI number of your blackberry. Some times, it's automatically activated when you put in the SIM so you have to activate by customer service. When you put in the SIM are you getting any signal bars?

HELP!! my nokia 6500s wont allow me to get on the menu screen,, whenever it starts up,, it shows Push to talk,, and it wont go away,, ive restarted it several times,, it still shows push to talk,, push to...


Try doing this. Turn off the unit, remove the battery, press and hold the power button (while battery is out), then put the battery back and turn it back on. If that doesn't work, just repeat the steps including removing the Sim Card. Or turn on the unit without a Sim Card.

You can also try using reset codes but that would reset EveryThing back to default settings which might include losing the settings of your provider which is not recommended. But the initial step is safe to use.

Hope this helps.

Ive just put a new sim in my e71 now its saying connection error so i cant ring or text


You most likely need to contact your service provider and have them send an activation signal. if you are a verizon user just press *228# then send and it will do it for you.

Is the simcard you are using working ok in a different handset? Have you tried any other simcard in it ?

If so and it still doesn't work contact the ebay seller re a faulty item

Inactive Sim and Signal


this is happening to mine aswell. i have had it for nearly 8 months it had a good period of no problems bout 6 months after puchasing. However just today it has been saying inactive sim and re-setting itself for the last 45minutes. i blamed it on a loose sim card holder but i tightened that and it is still not working. the only way to fix this is to complain like a ***** and get your money back.

No Signal On my Samsung d600


You did not specify which provider .. be sure that the phone is registered with your provider as well as the SIM card if it has one. The company has the ability to check your signal by sending a test signal from one of their towers.
