Re: phone function will not turn on

I had the same problem. It turns out to be a bad or malfunctioning sim card. Get the card changed by your provider (you can still keep your phone number.

My sidekick slide cant read my new sim..........i need help...when ever i try am stuck at the sim center.

Hi, First request the phone's IMEI code by contacting customer service for T-Mobile. If you've been a customer long enough, T-Mobile may send the IMEI code, or the code identifying the specific phone, in a few days.Turn off the Sidekick Slide. Remove T-Mobile's SIM card, which is located near the battery. Insert the new provider's SIM card.Turn the Sidekick Slide back on. The phone will detect the new code and ask for the IMEI code. Enter the code. Now the Sidekick will operate using the new network.
Thank you

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.

T-Mobile sidekick II keeps resetting

I had this problem with a new phone, and T-mobile gave me the following instructions.

Try this first:
1) Turn on phone with SIM chip in it.
2)hold down the "@" + "1" + "0" down simultaneously until phone turns off, then back on again. This should fix the problem. otherwise try this,

1) remove battery and SIM.

2) press and hold down the "w" key, and while holding it down insert the battery only.

3)A little face will appear on the screen, then a reboot button. Press the reboot button. Once the phone reboots, insert the SIM. One of those two should fix the problem.

SIM missing error

try inserting and removing of sim, do it 10-times for example and than try to turn it on, I had similar problem with my diamond and it helped, if it doesn't help, you can try it more times, if still problem continues, remove battery and try to clean your sim contacts with alcohol, keep them litttle bit wet and put it to device, then remove it, dry it and wait 15 minutes, put SIM and battery back and try tu turn device on. If it doesn't help, put it to service

Pantech Freezes Up

I had this problem, and ended up having to do a Master Reset. If possible, back up any data on the phone prior to doing this because you will lose all contacts, etc.

You can perform the master reset by removing and and the Sim Card then re-installing the battery. Open up the slider and hold the S and L keys on the QWERTY keyboard. While holding these keys, turn the phone on. Continue to hold the S & L keys until you receive an 'error missing sim card' screen. (It still took a while to progress beyond the AT&T screen...don't give gets through it eventually.) After you get the missing sim card error message, turn the phone off, remove the battery, re-insert the sim card, re-install the battery, and then turn the phone on normally.

It will now behave like a brand new phone, without any of the data saved.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger

Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

S710a problems

I am having the same problem - it won't hold a charge. Red light shows it is charging, but nothing. It may be the battery. I just called S.E. and they said it may be the battery. I ended up getting a new phone since batteries cost almost as much as a new phone.
