Phone won t turn

Well first it said sim card access error then i put in a little piece of paper between the sim card and the battery-this worked for like 2 months, but then it started playing up again and eventually went off. I then waited for a few seconds and then tried turning it on again and it came on. But after a little while it turned off and never came back on! HELP PLEASE!!!

Make sure that all contacts are clean. Even though they might look clean to the naked eye - they might be dirty - it\'s worth a shot.

A Tip for your Blackberry 8220 !!


Today I ran into a Problem with my Blackberry 8220. I turned it on and it said to "INSERT SIM CARD". To my surprise I realized I never removed the sim card. At this point i realized because of this error , I was unable to make calls or sent texts or anything else...I was freaking out! After taking the battery and sim card out and restarting the phone several times, I still had no luck!"INSERT SIM CARD "was still there!!! I arrived at school turned on my laptop and searched google and found the great CRACKBERRY web site. After searching a bit I ralized this was a common issue with my phone. Someone suggested i try a piece of paper behind the sim card. This would allow the thin simcard to press against the spring inside for a better connection. First i tried a piece of copy paper I ripped and slid on carefully...Tried restarting and ther it was again"INSERT SIM CARD"..At this point I couldnt give up so i tried something thicker...a piece of cardboard from the back of my Managing and Maintaiining Microsoft Server 2003 Book. Its the card board that is at the back of the book where you find the supplemental CD/DVD. What made this even better was the fact that when i ripped a piece it had some adhesive on it so it stuck right on the sim card!! I tried it and ...it worked!!!!!!...So there you go...my Blackberry 8220 insert sim card TIP!!!!!

All telephony functions, including emergeny call are disable due toa communicatio eror


Basically the solution is to claim the warranty and Nokia replaces a new one for you, what if you are out of warranty, just someone like me? Nokia has no answer for that, thank you Nokia ;)
I was thinking "Sim card icon and communication error", maybe it is sim card slot issue? I don't know, but here's what I try -
0. Switch off N9001. Open up N900 case at the back(battery part)2. Take out battery3. Take out sim card from the slot, clean it4. Put the sim card back to the slot5. Tighten the slot6. Take the toilet paper, yes I say toilet paper because it was on my desk when I was trying to fix this7. Try to tear the toilet paper and make it thicker by layering them8. Make the toilet paper slightly same size(square) as the sim card slot9. Put the toilet paper on top of the sim card slot and push in a bit10. Put back your battery and press it little hard, the toilet paper will be underneath11. Close the case12. Switch on your phone
The phone works automagically, don't ask me why, it's really high tech fix if you ever encounter this issue.

Lg vu won't read sim card


I've dealt with this issue ever since I bought this phone - and would rather throw it across the room and watch it burst into 1,000 pieces than have to see the error pop up again. All I did was cut out about 1-inch by1/4" inch strip from a postcard - or any heavy weight paper. In other words, not cardboard, but not copy paper. More like the weight of a vhs cover box, cereal box, etc. I inserted one end of the strip above the sim card and below the phone shell (over the part of the sim card that's not showing); and folded the rest of the paper strip (might have to tear some off) to be double ply above the part of the sim card that is showing. Put on the cover; you should have to press firmly to get it to fit on and smash the double-ply strip down. Make sure the double ply is only over the sim card, not any over the battery. This worked for me!

SIM card is not being read.


Try to clean the SIM-card with a washcloth. Not too much water in it, just a little.

Cect P168 not dectecting My sim Card


The "insert sim" error is a common error. Usually it is caused from putting the sim in incorrectly.

Try this. If this is the one with the sim card ports that are on top of eachother than put the sim card in the port closest to the phone with the gold side pointing up.

Insert battery, turn on phone.

On the phone, go to the main menu. Tap phone settings. Tap dual sim settings. Tap to open sim 2. Go back to the main screen.

If that does not resolve go back to phone settings, tap dual sim settings, tap to open sim 1, go back to the main screen.

If this is the type of phone with the sim card ports seperate, insert sim with gold side down in either port. Go to phone settings, tap dual sim settings, tap open dual sims. Go back to main screen.

If this problem persists than either the phone or the sim is defective. Test the sim by putting it in a phone that belongs to the carrier the sim came from. If it works in that phone it is not the sim.

Razor phone not reading sim card


Have you tried a different SIM to make sure that isn't the problem? I'd say 3 out of 4 times when the phone gets wet the other stuff works after it dries, but people constantly have problems with reading the SIM afterwards. Hopefully swapping the SIM card out will help, otherwise your only option is to have a repair shop fix it up for you.
