After updating my k800i and restarting its showing insert correct sim card.Help?

Hi,try and insert the Sim correctly i think that will do. if nly the update was successful.

If after doing that, and nothing happens,that means the Sim tray where the Sim card in inserted in the phone is damaged andwill need to be replaced.

Have a nice day.

I bought my sony ericcson c510a about 8 month ago..after use 5 month my phone got some problem.the problem list is: 1)cant charge-already ok after i send to phoneshop where i buy this phone 2)always show...

If you have said that you have the phone repaired by shops and the problem still keep coming back, I can suggest that maybe it is time for replacement of the phone.
If you say that after repair it can be used then after 5 months the problem comes back, the phone may be having some other problems, and it would be practical to just replace the phone than to have it repaired everytime, the costs of the continous repair i guess can add up to a price of a new one.
Alternaely if the phone have warranties, should have it brought from where you bought it, and explained the situation, they can replace it, providing it isnt repaired by any other shop.
These are because your phone model have some components that need PROFESSIONAL repair methods, and only AUTHORIZED tech can perform the repair.

hi, have you tried inserting another sim card? try inserting another one and if you still get the same message it means the the memory space of the phone might be faulty...if after inserting another sim and it worked properly, it means that the sim card signal is means you have to contact your service provider.

My nokia 3200 restart when simcard inserted.but when simcard no inserted the phone no restart.just showing insert simcard


This is happening because when the Sim card is not inserted you cannot access the menu of the phone some nokia phones(including yours) are built that way.

Some nokia phones do not need a sim card for you to access the phone menu (e.g 5130,5230), while you can only view the demo of some nokia phones (e.g 1208, 1600) without a sim card

I have k850i last night i make call from it after

Hi! This is a hardware problem, the SIM socket inside the phone may be broken, so you need to get it to a service to be checked/repaired.

On my screen it says insert sim,or view demo of the phone this phone first,press sim card is working but nothing happening on phone.

Is this a new phone? If so check that you've inserted the SIM correctly and it's not SIMlocked to another network

If it's worked before remove the SIM and GENTLY clean the contacts on the phone and the SIM with a pencil eraser.
