Question about Sony Ericsson W890i Cellular Phone

Problem with my W890i (sim showing inactive)

I have a sony ericsson W890i that i never really use except for when I'm abroad as it's too expensive to use my other phone.
However, I hadn't used it for a few months now and my friends phone broke so I gave him my W890i one but when he puts his sim card in it shows up as inactive. It's an orange phone and he is on orange yet all sim cards show up as in active.
I'm not sure what to do because the sim works in other phones and the phone is unlocked so I'm very confused.
I'd greatly appreciate any assistance given, thank you.

SOURCE: Sony Ericsson W890i ringtone and alarm doesnt make noise walkman works.

The front speaker needs replacing. Songs/MP3's are played through the back speakers, thats why you can hear them when you play them individually.

Ive been quoted around £50 from an online mobile phone repair centre to replace it.

Needless to say, Ive sent my phone back for a refund, and i wont be buying this phone again.

My w890i phones keeps freezing and then switches off sometimes it comes on again but has a message inactive sim, I replaced the sim but same problem very regular ocurrence. I have taken out sim leaft...


I had the same issue with my W890i, I sent it off to Sony for fixing - but the issue still remained... I fixed the problem by using the Sony Ericssion PC suite, plug in the phone and then run the "update" wizard. then ran the Repaire/Reset to factory settings.

This cleared the problem straight away - ALTHOUGH be aware that this will wipe your phone clean. Any numbers stored on the phone will be deleted.

Message 'inactive sim card' keeps appearing


Check if your SIM works in other phone. If it doesn't change the SIM. If it works then flash the phone.
