Rather than the phone , the sim card is more likely to have gone bad. Check with an alternative SIM card, and check if you have inserted it in the correct way.
if the alternative SIM is also not working , the phone would have to be checked for problems

Thanks for using Fixya

My nokia 6300 can not read my installed sim card, though i have attached the simcard, it is reflecting in cp monitor no simcard inserted. What would be the possible problem?

The Simcard might gone bad due to some reason, try this sim to other phone, if it not works then issue another sim to your service provider.
otherwise the contact at phone may gone bad, needs repair.
Good Luck

My new t mobile nokia 1661-2b write sim invalid please help me

If you had bought the mobile in some other network and if you want to insert T-mobile, the phone will show "SIM Invalid" . To use this mobile you need to unlock it to the network you bought from. You can ask the network provider from where you bought the mobile to unlock it. You can also unlock it online by submitting your IMEI number. I know this site provides good unlocking service.

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


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
