Again, if you were familiar with cell phone technologies you would know that CDMA phones do not use SIM cards. Only GSM phones do. CMDA carriers like Verizon, Sprint and Alltel will never have SIM cards in their phones. The contacts are stored directly to the phone and in the case of Verizon, you have Backup Assistant which sends your contacts to a safe place.


Carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile are the only carriers that use SIM cards since they are GSM companies.

    The only way to recover the information that is lost is if you had already registered with a Backup Assistant-type application like Verizon offers. This is essentially like a SIM card without actually having a card that somebody can remove.



I have this phone. There is NO sim card in this phone. What Michael Herc posted above is precisely correct. Ive had my phone completely disassembled and know for sure there is no sim.

Okay, Obviously you guys aren't tooo quick on picking up on things..... First off if you looked for it when you recieved the phone...and Its not there. Thats because its.... sold seperatly.(Also mentioned in the manual) So Yes, Verzion phones are sim card capable....u just gotta get one.

When i put a sim card an error report reading"illegal use will be powered off soon" is displayed but when i remove the sim card the phone is ok what could be the problem?

Your phone is sim-locked and needs to be unlocked. This can often be done cheaply in local phone shops, or online.

Where is the sim card and how to get it out

Depending on the model, and manufacturer the SIM is generally located under the battery.

To access the battery, open the back panel, take out the battery. You will see a silver metal shaped sim card cover, lift/slide it and place your sim card.

Be sure to read your phone manual as this always shows how to insert the sim.

How i will initialize my SIM card?Should i enter my SIM PIN number?


Remove the battery from your phone. Slide off the back cover of your phone to get to the battery. Gently lift the battery from its compartment to remove.

Insert the SIM card into your phone. Once your battery is removed, insert the SIM card into your phone. Look at the image on the phone to see how to insert the SIM card correctly. Make sure it is pushed all the way into place.

Replace the battery and turn on the phone. Replace the battery back into its compartment and replace the back cover. Turn on your Nokia 2610 phone, and it should boot up. The name of your wireless provider will appear when your phone is turned on.

Allow time for your phone to read the SIM card. Once your phone is booted up, it will say initializing. This means that it is reading your SIM card information. Once your SIM card is read, your phone will go to the home screen. Your SIM card is now activated, and you should be able to access all of your information.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Can't read sim card

Have you used this SIM card in another phone?

Some cell phones have trouble reading SIM cards that have been used in other phones. (Example: The Samsung Jack may not be able to read a SIM card that has been used in a previous Samsung BlackJack model.) I run in to this problem almost daily with my customers.

Your HTC phone probably has the same problem. To correct it, you'll need to purchase a new SIM card (you can get one on eBay for the least amount of money) and contact your cellular provider. Tell them you have a defective SIM - that you purchased a new SIM card and you need your account switched to the new SIM card.

After you give them your new SIM card number, it will take about 15 seconds and the new SIM will be ready to use in your HTC TyTN.

If you open it up, check the SIM card. Just below the word SIM CARD, are some letters like:
If the last two are not C4 - you probably have a T-Mobile SIM CARD.
I'm not an expert, but the blog stated if you (dread) call Customer support, have patience, ask them to send you an AT&T SIM card.
Look up Pbushx2's WebLog. He is a Tracfone tech and explains why some phones have this problem. Since I have this same phone, just got it today, and it does have the wrong SIM CARD in it. I'm going to do what he suggests. I found this info reading the responses to his blog, under TUCKER.
Hope this helps.

Unblocking My Sim Card

Either you need to put a code in the phone to accept any new sim card or the the phone sounds like it has been reported lost or stolen or the previous sim card had the wrong pin number inputted causing the phone to lock and then the right PUK number was not entered. If you want to run to the expense of buying a serial cable for your phone I can pinpoint where you can get software for samsung phones. Look at my profile at mail me. Hope this helps.

Location of SIM card in Motorola Razr

Are you guys serious....

Verizon & Alltel (which happened to recently finalize the merge) use CDMA. CDMA does not use SIM cards.

AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. use SIM cards - wheter they are 3G networks, TDMA, etc.
