My mom just had the same thing happen and tried several times to reinsert it, only to have the same thing happen. Since we don't live near each other there was only so much I could help here with over the phone, so I sent her to a T Mobile store. They told her she had the sim card in wrong. Apparently she had only gotten it under one of the clips, not both. I think it was the top clip that wasn;t engaging. Try to see if that helps you as well.

Take your Nokia into your cell service provider and ask them to help with the sim card problem. they may simply replace the sim card for you. (AT&T will do it for free, IF you are a customer.)

WHY DOES MY PHONE SAYS INSERT SIM


try taking SIM and battery out placing it back in an powering on.

If you try this and it still does not work you may need a new SIM card. Take it to a local dealer they should have a new SIM they will put your number on it and you will be back in business.

If the new SIM doesn't not work you will now know it is your Phone, which means time for a new one.

good luck

My nokia 3200 restart when simcard inserted.but when simcard no inserted the phone no restart.just showing insert simcard


Hi

This is happening because when the Sim card is not inserted you cannot access the menu of the phone some nokia phones(including yours) are built that way.

Some nokia phones do not need a sim card for you to access the phone menu (e.g 5130,5230), while you can only view the demo of some nokia phones (e.g 1208, 1600) without a sim card

Keep saying insert SIM card


You are trying to use a SIM from another Network or Handset but your phone is LOCKED to your old network and/or to a specific SIM card and number: this is why it is asking you for the unlock code to remove the restriction. It you are no longer under contract or obligations (such as minimum total recharge amounts for apre-paid handsets), then you could try to request the unlock code from the original service provider of your handset.
As for asking to insert SIM card, make sure that the SIM is correctly and securely inserted in your handset SIM holder. Also check that the SIM is still functional by inserting it in another handset: SIM card can be permanently and physically disabled if you attempt to enter too many consecutive invalid codes (usually around 10).
Hope it helps and good luck!

On my screen it says insert sim,or view demo of the phone this phone first,press demo.my sim card is working but nothing happening on phone.


Is this a new phone? If so check that you've inserted the SIM correctly and it's not SIMlocked to another network

If it's worked before remove the SIM and GENTLY clean the contacts on the phone and the SIM with a pencil eraser.

How do I Insert new sims card


Some 3360 and other models were manufactured for different markets and some of these markets didnt had the SIM card technology by the time this phone was released so:

Some 3360 dont use SIM and may not work on your cellhone provider.

Try asking your provider to see if you can activate the phone without SIM as some providers usually offered the service in the transition between technologies and standards.

Good Luck...
