    my sim card wont work either but it works in other phones. tmobile said i would have to buy a new phone. my plan expires in a couple months so i can buy a new phone and sign a new 2 year contract which there is no F#@*ing way i am doing that, or i can get another phone which they said the cheapest is $89 and the only "special" feature it has is speaker phone. i know they rig it that way so we have to buy new phones and sign new contracts. bastards.

    my sidekick will also not read my sim card but it works in other phones. they said that the problem is unfixable and i will have to buy a new phone and sign a new contract which is bulls$&@ because i am not rough with my phone or have spilled anything on it. if this was a problem with alot of phones, which i have read has happened quite alot, then they should just fix it because i know it is fixable. Is there anything I can do before I start raising hell?

Sim card cant be read

The first step I would recommend is to re-seat your SIM card. To do this locate the SIM card slot, and remove the SIM. Make sure there is no dust or dirt making your phone not recognize the SIM.
After doing that reinsert the card and then try restart your phone. After a few seconds you the warning should disappear and your phone should be working normally again.
If this does not fix it my only other suggestion would be to contact Apple or your phone provider and discuss getting a new SIM card.

Good Luck!

It says unregistered sim card

usually in this case, the phone is stolen or picked up and the original owner of the phone canceled their account so whoever has the phone now cannot use it.

or the sim card and phone are incompatible with each other. (ex. at&t phone with t-mobile sim card, or vice versa) they just wont work with eachother.

How do you fix a memory card into motorola v3 i have tried slipping it behind my sim card then the phone cant read sim can anyone help?

There should be an alternate slot for the memory card to slip into besides the sim slot. just look it should be behind the battery cover but not behind the battery.
