Hi pls how can fix htc tnty 11, if turn it on it will show sim card is missing pls help me i love my phone thank

Replacing the phone is not the solution to the problem with the phone, so do not be scared, you will still be having your phone but run through this information below to be able check and solve the problem with the phone.

First you need to check if it is the phone that is faulty or the sim card, to know if it is the phone, try out another sim card in it, if it reads the sim card then you know that the problem is from the sim you put in, then you either get a sim swap for replacement or you get a new sim card.

But if it does not read the sim card, then you need to understand that the phones sim card carrier is bad and the solution to that is for you to try pad the back of the sim card on the sim card carrier, or have the phone disassembled then solder a little lead on the sim carrier so it will make proper contact with the sim card and read it.

Take care and good luck
Hope this helps!

I can tell you that if you have pictures on them they have to be put into a specific folder to view on the phone. The easiest thing to do is format the card on your computer. After I did that the sidekick had no problems reading mine. If you ever add photos to the card from an outside source such as usb cable make sure you put the pictures in the exact same folder the sidekick camera puts them in.

Sidekick II won't read sim card

Yeah, I can help. On the sidekick 08 when placing the card make sure you place the card with the cut edge facing the battery. This phone work with the sim card facing the opposite way. Hope this help:)

Blackjack sim card

Well, no. Your sim card must have taken a big jolt to it in order for it not to work. Simple, you need a new one. Got a Sams club near you? They should be able to give you one for free, att corporate stores charge 25.00. But sorry to say you need a new sim.

T-Mobile wing problems

When I went to my local T-mobile dealer about the sudden absence of any sound from my Wing, he suggested I take the battery out, then put it back in. It worked.

Since then I have discovered that sometimes this fix works (why?) and sometimes it doesn't.

Not happy at all here, to have spent so much on the phone and then find out that when I answer a phone call, I've no idea whether I'm going to be able to hear anything or not, and I may or may not be able to "fix" it.

If anyone has more insight on this, I'd sure like to hear it.
