If it takes a sim card that may be all it needs, check with your local provider to try a new sim card. Good luck hope that works for you!!

Fell in water now cdma not available


you may just need to go into your provider and get a new SIM Card if it takes one. Hopefully that is all it needs, they are usually free and will usually connect your phone right there in the store. Hope this was helpful!

``my nokia x6 drop in water after heating the phone all thing is working fine except both camera when i open the camera its come black for 2 second and nothing happen so its hardware problem or software...


If you ever drop an electronic device in water, you should turn it off and leave it in a well-ventilated place for at least a week, this is to avoid any short circuiting that may occur. It seems you have already switched your phone on, it may be possible that you have permanently damaged the circuitry. Try following the above steps, and if that doesn't solve your problem, the you should take your phone to a Nokia service center.

Sim card not accepted


it depends on the kind of sim card you a re inserting, First, the sim card may be damaged, or probably the sim port on the phone may be damaged or bad. Then secondly, not all sim work with all phones, like the CDMA sim only work with cdma phone and it won't work on any other phone except cdma phones and normal mobile sim will not work on a cdma phones as well. verify all this to know where the problem comes from...if probably you try another sim on the and it works, it means that the sim card is the problem but if it doesn't work then the problem is directly from the phone, i.e. the sim port on the phone, you can then take your phone to an engineer for repair or the customer service center for repair. Thanks

Dropped phone in toilet and the same thig is happening...no cdma


None. If the phone is exposed to any form of liquid or moisture it will damage the phone's mother board, it causes malfunction on the phone. You can try to have a technician evaluate it for you, if the phone can still be repaired.

My phone won't send/receive calls or text messages. Keeps stating the cdma network is not available. I went to the verizon store and they said there was a problem with their network and all samsung phones....


I had the same problem today - phone was working fine and then started with the cdma network not available. I turned the phone off, removed the battery, put it back in and turned the phone back on. It seems to be working OK now. This battery has had some issues anyway so I'm thinking it needs to be replaced.
