The sim connector may be dirty and you can service it with methelated spirit by unscrewing it and allow it to dry before screwing it back, usualy with a soft mouth brush.

How to fix my mottorola v3 its sayin no service???

Well it depends...First take a sim card beside yours, one you know works, power phone off, insert sim, power phone up, wait 1 minute, if it still says no service, power down and take the sim card back out, reinstall the battery and power phone back on without sim installed. when the phone powers back on does it say "no sim" or "no service"? this is to see if the phone can decipher a sim being in the phone and it not having service. If it say no sim then the sim reader is working, if it says no service then the phone may not in-fact be able to tell the difference of having a sim card and having service. Regardless at this point it is not working and more than likely an internal electrical component has failed and more than likely it may be the radio communication circuit of the device, if you insist on keeping this device- find one with a cracked screen but working internal and dissemble it, and replace the main board in the unit- this will in turn change the esn' imie, the overall serial of the phone, so take note of the new phone serial number- only replace the main bored under the keypad,be careful because it is VERY easy to mistakenly damage the device and its components. I do not see an easier way than this to fix you issue besides taking it in for repair- the new phone does not have to be broken but must be operational for making and taking calls. save all of your information as it will be lost after transfer-more or less still on the old phone, if this is an unlocked device please return original carrier sim for testing, and if the unit does not accept sim card skip those steps, and be sure that the new phone does not have an esn lock--Good Luck

It comes up with Insert SIM Emergency? What is SIM?

A SIM card or Subscriber Identity Module is a portable memory chip used in some models of cellular telephones. The SIM card makes it easy to switch to a new phone by simply sliding the SIM out of the old phone and into the new one. The SIM holds personal identity information, cell phone number, phone book, text messages and other data. It can be thought of as a mini hard disk that automatically activates the phone into which it is inserted.

A SIM card can come in very handy. For example, let's say your phone runs out of battery power at a friend's house. Assuming you both have SIM-based phones, you can remove the SIM card from your phone and slide it into your friend's phone to make your call. Your carrier processes the call as if it were made from your phone, so it won't count against your friend's minutes.

If you upgrade your phone there's no hassle involved. The SIM card is all you need. Just slide it into the new phone and you're good to go. You can even keep multiple phones for different purposes. An inexpensive phone in the glove compartment, for example, for emergency use, one phone for work and another for home. Just slide your SIM card into whatever phone you wish to use.

High-end cell phones can be very attractive and somewhat pricey. If you invest in an expensive phone you might want to keep it awhile. Using a SIM card, it is even possible to switch carriers and continue to use the same phone. The new carrier will simply issue you their own SIM card. The phone must be unlocked, however, and operate on the new carrier's frequency or band.

When it's not inserted properly, it displays insert .You will need to insert the sim card properly so that the message won't come up again..

My phone will not come on

sometimes the sim tray would function incorrectly, again it depends on which phone you used your sim previously. it must have been blunt inside. tear a piece of paper, fold it exactly to .05mm and keep it on the simcard and place the battery, due to pressure, sim will get into contact.

before this, try to wipe off all the dirt on simcard and get the sim contact tray rectified or cleaned from dirt from your nearest mobile repair shop

It is sayin enter puk code

Hi if your phone is asking for the PUK code then what the phone is asking for is the security code for the sim card all you need to do is contact your service provider and give them your phone number they will then give you the 15digit code over the phone, they wont charge for this, but the code they give you will only work with the sim card thats asking for the code as every single sim made has its own unique unlocking code so write it down when they give it to you in case you ever need it in the futuere ok.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
