My new htc phone does not recognise the sim card in it

There may be various reasons for your problem.
i) The SIM card which you have inserted might be damaged. Try inserting the same SIM card into any other network free cell phone and check if it works fine with it.
ii) The SIM card might have not been yet activated if it is a new one. Wait for some time to get it activated or call your network provider to ensure its activation status.
iii) The SIM port might have been damaged in your cell phone. Insert any other active GSM SIM card to the cell phone and check whether it works fine with it.
iv) The cell phone might have been restricted to some specific network. You need to unlock your device. You can unlock your HTC phone safer and easier using unique unlock code. You can get the unique unlock code for a HTC phone from at affordable cost with an easy unlocking guide. Good luck.

My sim card

sounds like the phone is either still wet or the water shorted out the motherboard and you have damaged the phone. you could try a hard reset back to factory defaults or you might need a new motherboard. Insurance might cover this but manufacturer warranties rarely do, in which case try ebay for spares or a new phone might be cheaper.

Want to change my sim card in my phone , but when i insert the sim card the phone does not recognise it and says to insert sim card

Hello there,
If your phone is not accepting any other sim card, then it means the phone is sim card secured lock or protected, there are some phones that do not accept any other kind of sim card apart from that which they are made for.
For instance a phone made for vodafone purposes cannot accept etisalat sim cards, it will only accept vodafone sim card. Therefore that is what you are facing with the phone.
Take not, if you insert similar kind of sim you were iniially using, it will accept it.
That is why you cannot use another kind of sim on the phone.
Thank you for using fixya Caseytech

Phone Not recognizing sim

It will only get worse, they are not designed to survive any liquid exposure whatsoever, transfer/backup your data ASAP, and if you purchased the phone insurance this is covered. If it works after being somewhat submerged they usually get between 1 week to 2 months. I used to wrok for the insurance company, I have seen the data on this. Terribly sorry to bear this news but moving forward have a nice day.

Iphone 3g 8gb Officially unlocked sim error problem

the new sim card is connected with having an iphone account. when you say it is officially unlocked.
does this mean that AT&T unlocked your phone?
what i think your saying is that if you have 2 sim cards, one that is in use and the other is a spare you cannot use both. at the same time.
the sims are standalone, to use a spare sim it has to be activated by the carrier, thus disabling your original sim.
when you change sims you will need to reboot the phone that will not change.

My Nokia 3250 in "offline" mode.

The problem is with the sim card. try to remove the sim, clean it with a dry cloth and put it back in. if the problem is not solved, take back the sim to your network provider and get a replacement, asuming the sim is damaged

W850i memory stick

I had the same problem, I realised I must have got it wet from the above comments.
I basically took the card out and blew very hard into the socket in an attempt to dry it. I put the card in and it worked fine!
I hope this has helped, sorry if it doesn't.
