Sim card not working and no service

Yesterday my phoen suddenly decided not to let me into the sim card, then i suddenly had no service in an area i had full service just a mintue before then. it then proceded to turn itself off and on for a few minutes, then coming up with the wrong time, the clock size changed, and still no service and no contacts. i then manually turned it off and back on and it kept coming up with "insert correct sim card" in blue, once i got that to go away the writing was black, when it is normally white, and still nothing worked. i just tried a different sim card, exactly the same thing! Please help, im scared i have a virus or something!!

SOURCE: my phone says "INSERT CORRECT SIM CARD" when i turn on

This may sound simplistic ... insert the correct SIM card.

Did you receive same with the phone? are you trying to use one from another phone? is one required at all? who is your carrier? What did they recommend to resolve?

Try this, since it seems you have a sim probably from another phone, there is that possibility that the formatting is not compatable with your new phone. Get a SIM to USB adapter. Plug it in to your computer USB. Copy the data from your SIM to your computer. Clear (format) the SIM using your computer. Put the clean SIM back into your phone - see what happens.

Good luck, I hope something here works for you

Thanks for posting at

My phone says it has no service. How can I fix this?

Hi Cgsaiki,

Please check if you have a good cell coverage at the area from your provider. If the service was just working ok until now at the area.

Tried to remove the battery and un-seat and re-seat the sim card from the card bay on your cellphone. If its still not working, try to change the sim card itself with a confirm working one.

If the new card still work on your cell, you need to replace the sim. If the confirmed working sim card is also not working on your cell. you might want to have your cell check by the provider/manufacturer as as there is something wrong either with the contact of the card bay, the sim card reader itself, or the cellphone's transceivers is acting-up.

Hope this helps.

Hello my nokia 5230 has a problemes when i put in the sim card i get sim card not valid could you help me please

Hi I'm a mobile phone Tech.

If your mobile phone is on a contract with a service provider, most of the times it will be locked in with them for the duration of the contract,
So if you try to insert a sim card from a different service provider, it may say "sim card not valid'
Try to insert your original sim card and see if that works.

Otherwise if this IS your original sim card and all of a sudden this message "sim card not valid" has appeared, then the sim card has gone faulty and you need to get a new sim card from your service provider eg... Vodafone.

Hope this is helpful

Sim cards get rejected with one of two things: 1: You have the Sim put in the wrong way 2: Your operator has blocked your phone for whatever reason."

You have purchased a htc handset which will work only on a particular service provider like AIRTEL OR VODAFONE, 
check your default internal memory ringtone section , whether it has airtel ring tone ....

then by that service providers SIM CARD , your hand set will work.

some times dual band sim cards dont work on triband service providers.handset
