Re: phone says insert sim when turned on, dosent charge...

Remove sim from phone and gently rub the copper side with a pencil eraser then wipe off the excess rubber and replace the sim.
if this doesn't work then your sim reader may have died and a tech will have to repair this

Sony ericsson w995 won't charge. On attempting to charge phone says "Battery can not be charged insert a Sony Battery" (the battery is the original battery) once that screen goes it says insert SIM even...

Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

N95 on offline mode, not coming in general or other mode, when any sim card inserted ' sim card not valid'

hi malik, you're still having the same problem though, now you know that your phone has the error..
try these steps on your N95 phone.
1. on your keypad, press *#7370# for soft reset
2. then, insert your sim back, check if your sim has been recognized, if it doesn't do step 3,
3. on your keypad, press *#7780# for hard reset once finished, insert your sim back and switch on. if the phone still doesn't recognized the sim, then do step 4.
4. on your keypad press *, 3, call key and power switch at the same time, to make a hard formatting on your phone and setting it back to its factory setting.
>> under above steps, you need to make sure that, battery is fully charge, if not, fully charge battery before doing all the steps above. don't forget to remove your sim every time you do the steps (so as the sd card if your phone has it).
>>>please make a note that, if all of the above steps has failed,or nothing happened and still you have the same issue, then go now to a phone repair shop and have them check your phone, it can be a hardware problem. if your phone is still under warranty, try not to do the steps above, instead, go back to that phone store and return your phone and show them your problem, so they can immediately replace it.
>>>also, make sure that your phone is network unlock and can be use with other network sim.

good luck.

I can't turn off my Samsung SGH - D880

Yesterday I also got the same problem on Samsung DUOS SGH-D780!
I found temporary solution how to drop this error message and run the phone normally, but after next reboot it often become again. I will ask Samsung tech. support about this, but now here is the emergency solution:

1. Turn OFF the phone (by removing the battery)
2. Move out all the SIM cards from the phone
3. Insert the battery again (BUT DON'T TURN ON THE PHONE, just insert the battery)
4. Insert a charging cable into the phone and insert the adapter in wall outlet

(then I see the loading screen for the short time and after that CHARGING icon appears)

5. After that turn ON the phone. It will start in no-sim mode.
6. Turn OFF the phone
7. Remove battery, insert SIM-cards, insert the battery.
8. Turn ON the phone

After that it gonna be work good until next reloading...

Insert sim

Try rigorously cleaning the sim card and phone connections (also battery connections - after reading forums the batteries on V3's are often to blame for their problems) with a cotton bud then leave the phone off without the sim card in it and charge it overnight. Then put in the sim card and turn the phone on. This might help. My V3 often says Insert SIM and it is very annoying so i'm getting rid of it but those methods have worked for me.

Hope this helps
