This message usually indicates that your SIM card is no longer valid. It may have expired from lack of use or if pay as you go, not adding money to it.

Limited service


Hi,

"Limited Service" does come up at times on mobile phones and this is due to a limited signal. Sometimes switching off and taking out your SIM card carefully and a soft wipe can resolve other glitches.

But, if the problem continues, try using another sim of different network. if the phone still says limited service, then, it means this is a software problem. You will have to flash the phone for it to come back to normal.

Flashing means you want to reinstall the software on the phone and this will erase all the contact, messages, audio and video file you have on the phone. This done using cables software and computer.

You can take it back to samsung mobile office if it is on warranty.

Thanks.

My phone is saying "


Hi, the message you are getting is telling you 1 of 2 things, now its either telling you that the sim card in the phone has either not been registered or it has not been topped up within a set time so its now been cancelled but if how ever the sim card is one that has been used on a regular basis then the chances are the sim card reader in the phone is now faulty.

you could try the following
1 take the sim card out of the phone, switch the phone on then switch it off again, then put the sim card back in the phone making sure its in far enough and the right way round then switch it back on and see if anything has changed.
2, try your sim card in some one else phone and if it works in their phone then you no you have got a problem with your phone
3 try another sim card in your phone making sure the sim card is from the same network as the phone is locked to,
if you try using a sim card from the wrong network it will give you the message your getting now so make sure you have got a sim from the same provider the phone is locked to.

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

please can you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My gl cell phone says unreg. sims


Hi, inside your phone, usually under the battery, will be a small card with a chip on it. This is the Sim card. The SIM card is what identifies you on the network. It has a special code that is unique to your line.

So basically, the phone is telling you that the card is unregistered: not tied to any account.

First, try taking off the back cover of your phone and removing the battery. Find the SIM card and take it out carefully. Wipe off the gold connectors and the gold part of the SIM card. Put it back in and make sure it's setting on there correctly. The gold part should touch the gold connectors, and it should sit firmly in place as to not slide around. Put the battery back in, the cover back on, and power your phone back on. See if this fixes it.

If you have another phone available that is on the same carrier as you, try your SIM card out inside that phone (just switch out temporarily). This way, you can tell whether it is the card or the phone that has a problem.

If these things don't work, call your carrier's customer service or take the phone into the store.

Phone keeps saying invalid sim


Messages When You Turn on the Phone
  • When turning on your phone you may find a message requiring you to take a certain action before you can use the phone. If the message says "INSERT SIM," make sure the SIM card is installed in the phone or that it hasn't become loose. The SIM card is located in the battery compartment. Remove the battery cover and the battery. The SIM card should be located near the bottom of the phone under the metal hinge. Insert or secure the SIM card with the contacts facing down, reinsert the battery and batter cover, and turn your phone on again.

    If the message reads "PHONE LOCK," the SGH U600's automatic locking function is enabled. Enter the phone's password to unlock the phone.

    When using the phone for the first time, you will be prompted to enter a PIN. The PIN is given with the SIM card for your phone. Enter the PIN number exactly as given. You may also have the "PIN Check" feature enabled on your phone, which will require you to enter the PIN every time the phone is powered on. You can turn off "PIN Check" in the "Settings" menu.

    A message asking you to enter a PUK means you attempted to enter the PIN number three times and failed. You must contact your service provider to get a PUK.

    Invalid sim


    Invalid SIM and Unregistered SIM are two different problems. Invalid SIM means the phone is locked to a certain company and you are trying to use a SIM card for another company. Unregistered SIM means the SIM card you are using is not active and you need to contact your service provider to get it activated. In order to unlock the phone so you can use anyone's SIM, you must contact the provider that the phone is locked to.
