    I also facing the same problem. I am using 3G sim card. Last month eveytime 3G coverage detected, my N70 went offline. Then I install new sim card from the Telco company. Yesterday my N70 went offline again, after a few minutes talk. Everytime I tried to change the profile, the massage "insert the sim card" appeared. I've tried few methods that been suggested, but to no avail.

    of course i have the same problem when i can put my sim card the phone say is offline and when i tried to change the profile.the phone say insert the sim card

  • kennedy657 Feb 02, 2009

    Each time i insert the sim card it says insert sim and always on offline mode.

  • abcis Feb 16, 2009

    To those who look at this & say "Oh just change the profile" keep your mouth firmly shut, switch off the computer, & throw it out of a window...

    To those who might be able to help.

    It's pretty much the same thing as everyone else, I was using the phone, it switched off & then turned back on in offline.

    Now you cannot change it from offline. I have even gotten the Nokia PC suite to try & fix it, & because of the sim card issue, you can't get the software updates.

    I struggle to believe this isn't possible to solve!

    Help is appreciated.

Where did you bought your phone? if you bought it from a telecom's promo it means that your phone is locked to a single network provided only. you can ask a technician to have your phone OPENLINE for you to be able to use any kinds of sims.
if it's not the case, check the slot for sim and make sure that the sim is properly placed. restart it without the sim and then restart again but now with the sim.

Your n70 is no longer connection at the telecommunication company! they cut off all the lines! you are blocked! if you want to use it again! reformat your N70! or they can change the CPU IC!

Make sure, that your mobile phone is not country code locked.. Moreover, The SIM jacket is intact and there is no physical damage at the jacket's location.. Also make sure that the SIM card, you are using is valid, and is not physically damaged (You can double check it by putting it to some other working cellphone).

Every time i insert my sim card into my phone and switch it on it tells me to insert a sim card and the phone stays in offline mode and cannot be put back into general or silent(n70)

remove the sim, battery, and memory card then clean your sim with eraser then try it on. if problem continues try a new sim and if not work again no other solution but to consult a technician.

This problem is called the 'insert sim' problem, there are several possibilities but first of all clean the sim card and the sim card interface on your phone. Next try it with another sim card. If this doesn't solve the problem, you need to go to the mobile repairing shop to get it serviced, or if you have idea in repairing mobile you can refer to this site on how to do jumper tips and tricks for this problem.. Good luck.. and please...-:)
