Or...ur sim card could have just slipped out...try taking the battery out and the sim card and pushing the sim card back in...the phone will become inactive if the sim card is not being read or isnt present in the phone. so do that then try. should for my phone when it says insert sim.

Yes there is one way to fix this it would however involve taking it to a repair centre and will probably cost you about £40.00 as it sounds like the charger port has become disconnected and requires a new port and the sim holder has become loosened so therefore needs replacing.

When I connect the charger I either get "Unable to charge battery" or "Insert SIM" - the SIM is already inserted. Battery is new. what's the problem

It sounds like you may have 2 issues that need repairing:

Bad charging port
Bad SIM tray.

Since you can get V3's on ebay now for under $40, that might be your cheaper option.

Remove the battery and remove the sim wait for 10 min and then plug in and power on ,if you get the same error then you may need to service the phone...

Good luck...

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..

"unable to charge", "insert sim". is your phone been dropped or got wet? if unable to charge, when using a wall charger, try different outlets. if using onl one charger, tr different chargers. if it won't work, try other compatible batteries if you would get a charging message. if does not work, have your phone checked with a service center

V3 dead but keypad flashing

I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...

SIM not recognized

I had the same problem with charging, I found that my car charger and via USB charged the phone but not my home charger. Give that a try, if it works with either one of them you will have to send it to Motoservice center and they will fix the internal connection problem. (save your money on buying new batteries and chargers) Make sure that the phone is not locked to a network, or make sure that the SIM has not expired and has plenty of credit.

If you are handy - open the phone and clean the flex pad connectors with a cotton swab and a little bit of isopropyl alcohol.
