Nokia n70 not recognizing sim card

I have bought a nokia n70 open line while I was on vacation in the Phils. it is an open line. It worked fine with my tmobile sim card, then suddenly it began asking to reinsert my sim card. I tried trying other sim cards from other providers, same problem, I tried my old sim on another phone, no problem there. I've tried to hard reset it, same thing, even put everything back to its factory settings, same thing. would appreciate any kind of suggestions. thanks. i've tried to google it, and the only thing it suggested was resetting my phone, or update it.

Re: nokia n70 not recognizing sim card

Are you a pinoy???

anyway, probably the sim loss its contact to its sim terminal... try inserting together to your sim a folded paper same size of your sim( just to compress your sim to its rterminals)... be sure not to cover the sim terminals...

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.

Saying no sim card inserted in my nokia 6111, but my sim card works in other fones

hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you? As a mobile phone techinician, Friend i will say that the problem centers on your phone and not on the sim card.
You phone is locked to the network of that SIM or commonly mentioned "not open line" thats why the software or the phone doesn't recognizes the SIM you are using because it is locked. To solve this problem you may go to your network provider and ask for assistance of opening the line of your phone so that you can use any sim cards you wanted. and your phone will now be unlock or "openline".Thats all friend hope i helped you good luck

Nokia offline

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.
