No sim card error is not virtual error from service providers, its due to your phone hardware problem. if your sim was not working due to service provider it will show your card registration failed. but you are getting sim card not inserted means your sim card contacts are not touching the phone sim contacts. try to refix your sim card properly. then try to reboot your phone.

Contact a TracFone service representative. Dial 1-800-867-7183 to report your SafeLink lost or stolen. Inform the representative of the estimated last date of use. Give a detailed description of where you may have lost the phone or how it got stolen.
Provide the representative with your mobile device's serial number or ESN found on your activation card. If you cannot locate the activation card, provide the representative with the cell phone number.
Request to keep your old phone number or apply for a new one. After the representative reports your cell phone lost or stolen, request that a copy of the report be sent to your active email address. Check your email address to make sure that you have received the email and a cell phone replacement confirmation number.
Expect the replacement SafeLink TracFone mobile device to be mailed to you within three to five business days, without cost. Check the contents upon arrival to make sure that the replacement cell phone, battery, charger, SIM card and activation card are intact.
To activate, call the number provided on your activation card. Provide the serial number, found on the activation card, and the SIM card code, found on the back of the SIM, to complete the activation process.
If your mobile phone is lost or stolen you can inform your cell phone provider with your IMEI number. Your cell phone provider can then put the serial number on a shared database. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM card is changed.
Please check the SIM card if it is correctly inserted or if you put in the SIM card the wrong way. But if you put in the SIM card correctly, you need to check your mobile phone if it is open to the network of the SIM card. If your mobile phone is unlock for all networks available in your country there is a problem on the SIM card. Please contact the network provider.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!
Contact your network provider and ask them to block your IMEI number. This will prevent the thief from using another SIM card in your phone. The phone will no longer be able to make calls unless you authorize it to be unblocked.
While you are talking to your network provider, write down the IMEI number of your phone then make a report to the Police. Sometimes stolen phones are recovered and returned if the original owner has reported it stolen.
You're a bit late in taking the action. However, you can contact your network provider now, explain your situation and ask him to block the IMEI number. The network provider might want you to file a police report to ensure that the theft was authentic; so do that. Once listed, regardless of what network is being used on the stolen device, it won't work and the network provider will be able to trace the stolen cell phone. The process can vary from city to city, however it's best to report theft to police and contact your network provider.
Hi, the phone is telling you one of two things, its either the phone is not on the network your trying to put it on, the sim card might be from a different network than the phone is locked to, it usually tells you what network it is on when you switch the phone on, if it dont tell you what network its on then just take it to any small phone shop that sells second hand phones and ask them to check what network its on then they will be able to provide you with the correct sim card.
the other problem you could have is if the phone has been reported lost or stolen then it can give you that warning then.
the only other problem you could have is if the sim card is not sitting in the phone properly try taking the sim card out of the phone and give the sim card a good wipe where the contacts are and then put it back in the phone making sure its pushed in properly.
then try the phone again, if it still gives you that message then its either wrong sim card, or the phone has been reported lost or stolen, or if the phone has been working with the sim card that is in the phone then the problem could be with the firmware on the phone which would need updating at a phone shop or the sim card reader may have failed, without knowing more about the phone and the network its on it would be difficult to give you a correct answer
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance
please could you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
Factory resetting the phone will do absolutely nothing with this problem
There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.
1, The sim card is turned off (is it Orange) if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.
2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.
3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.
I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message.
