Question about Sony Ericsson Black Silver Cedar J108i Unlocked Gsm Phone

1 Answer

Phone not recognising sim card. Window pops up which says 'insert sim card or to view a demo of this phone first press Demo"

I dropped the phone and the battery fell out. I removed the sim card and replaced again with battery only to find that I cannot open the phone again as the message pops up about inserting a sim card, even though the sim card is correctly inserted. Can you please help

Sim contacts may be dirty, either on the card or phone.
remove sim card and GENTLY rub a pencil eraser on the contacts to clean, then test. If you can access the contacts on the phone, do likewise. If not, then you'll have to use an Ether based cleaner, Like electrical parts spray ( available from your local auto parts store) .
be careful not to spray too much into the phone, as once the spray gets inside it takes longer to evaporate. You can counter the time by using compressed air to speed drying of the phone interior without taking it apart.
Hope this helps!!

It says insrert sim card, or to view a demo of this phone first, press Demo. whilst there is a sim in it


Make sure the sim card is inserted in there correctly and if its still not reading the sim card it might have a Bad sim card reader

"Insert SIM card" Prompt message


Hello

To avoid this kind of problem from recurring;

Make sure your Sim card is properly inserted

Make sure you avoid hitting the phone on objects and also avoid dropping the phone because this can make the Sim card shift out of place

Goodluck

On my screen it says insert sim,or view demo of the phone this phone first,press demo.my 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.
