Not sure if this is what you are after.

Your SIM card allows your phone to connect to GSM networks. When you insert your SIM card into a different unlocked phone, you'll be able to use your service on it. Similarly, if your phone is unlocked, you can insert SIM cards from different carriers into it, which can be useful when traveling.

When I switch On my phone it says "Sim card not valid". And its not taking the Sim Card. But without the sim card its perfect. My IMEI is 359849016183862. Please help me...

Hi, what might be the possible cause of the problem is either the Sim card your using on the phone or the Sim tray where the Sim card is inserted in the phone.

You can use the Sim card in another phone to be sure the Sim card is working properly.

After that, if the Sim card works,That means that Sim tray is damaged and will need to be replaced.

Have a nice day.

The message "insert sims card" keeps appearing and the sim card is in the phone.

Hi the first thing you need to check is if that sim card was working in the phone before if it was then ill discuss further at the end of this, if how ever it is not the original sim card then if this sim card has not been used for 180 days then the sim card gets cancelled and your phone wont pick it up, also you need to make sure the sim card you are using is for the network the phone is locked to.

Ok if the sim card is good and is working and its the correct one for your phone then this could mean one of a couple of things. try the following.
1. try the sim card in another phone to ensure it is still working and not been damged.
2. try another sim card in the phone this way you will know if its the phone with the problem or the sim card3
3. if its the phone with the problem then remove the sim card and check all the connection the sim card touch on the phone are clean and free from corrosion, press all the connections down with your finger to ensure they are all springy still.
4. if your sure the sim card works then you can try putting a small piece of paper on the back of the sim card so that when you put the sim card in the phone the extra piece of paper pushes the sim card down onto the contacts further as this does ware and you lose the connection.
if you can you can build up some tape on the back of the sim just to build it up slightly so it pushes is donw harder onto the contacts.
if after doing that it still dont work then the problem you have is going to be with the sim card reader on the phone. if this is the case then this part will need replacing and then this will solve your problem.

The cheapest place to get this done is one of those small phone shops that are not part of a big chain these need your custom and will offer you the cheapest prices for the repair.

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

Nokia 1110i says sim card not deteted even after sim card is inserted. Gives same message even after other simcards are inserted

It when your sim tray is been damaged thats when you experience problems like that.

Your sim card tray where you put your sim card is faulty,thats why your sim cards can not be accessed.

So you need to take it to a repairer to change the sim tray.

It needs to be changed

Need my puk code

puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.

The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.

The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.

if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new sim card.

also entering the puk code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.

There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. Theres no other solution.

You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the sim card.

Can't help you even if you paid.
