Re: error messages

1. Is there a SIM card in the phone? Is the SIM card from the same carrier/provider you got the phone from? Was the phone purchased as part of a plan or separately?

2. I see the not charging message a lot with my v551 that I had. I usually adjusted the inserted connector (after insertion) and 85% of the time, the phone recognized the power coming through.

If this fails, then try another power adapter. If after trying a new power adapter does not work, then the pins on the phone has sustained some damage.

Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

Keep asking sim card

Does your phone shows "insert sim card " error even though the sim is in? As far as I know there are two possibilities to get this error message.One is poor signal of that respective network for which you just need to switch OFF and ON your mobile and the mobile will be able to receive the signal from near by tower.You may also get this error message when you are trying to insert a sim other than which the mobile is locked to.To solve this problem you need to unlock the phone from that particular network or use the same sim to which the mobile is locked to.You can unlock HTC phones using unlock code from any vendors online like

Need unlock code for sony ericsson z550a for a tmobile SIM

Hi, If you get error message as PIN blocked. Unlock?" You have entered the wrong PIN code too many times. You need to unlock your phone using the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) code. Your PUK code is provided by your network operator. If you get error message as Insert correct SIM" You have inserted a SIM card that is not supported. Insert correct SIM card, or contact your Service Provider for a SIM unlock code. If you get error message as Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone is locked and you need to unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it. I Hope it helped you. Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Says insert sim card when there is one in it

"Insert SIM" message is normally displayed on phones when a SIM card is not inserted on power-on or it does not detect the SIM card inserted.

Likely Causes:
  1. No SIM card inserted or inserted SIM card is damaged
  2. Inserted SIM card not positioned well in such a way as to make contact with the corresponding contact bridges on phone.
  3. Phone locked to a specific network and can only work on other networks when the firmware version is "flashed", that is completely changed to an unlocked version.
  4. The phone might be faulty (try with another good SIM, if you still get thesame message and its not one of the above reasons... it might be a transciever problem or the phone's SIM card slot's pins might be defective).

Insert SIM Card message in nokia 6080 though SIM is inserted

May be its detecting your sim card properly. Check your sim card in another handset. Verify if its the propbelm with sim card not your handset.

I can't insert other sim cards from this certain network

Sounds like the phone hasn't been unlocked properly. I had a similar problem and eventually just changed my sim to the original phones network. This solved all problems but i don't know wether this is the full solution to your issue. I tried to help best as though dude.

Insert SIM Card

make sure the sim card can make good contact with the phone.
Also check if it doesn't have space to slide, causing it to loose contact with the phone.

Locked SIM card

Brother 3 time inserting of wrong security code gives "Enter PUK" message, 10 times entering wrong PUK code gives "Sim blocked" message. If there is "Enter PUK" message u can get it from service provider but if there is "Sim blocked" no one can do anything to your sim. You have to change your SIM in that case. Your service provider can replace your blocked SIM with another new SIM in normal charge. If this answer satisfied u do vote.
