How i will initialize my SIM card?Should i enter my SIM PIN number?


Remove the battery from your phone. Slide off the back cover of your phone to get to the battery. Gently lift the battery from its compartment to remove.

Insert the SIM card into your phone. Once your battery is removed, insert the SIM card into your phone. Look at the image on the phone to see how to insert the SIM card correctly. Make sure it is pushed all the way into place.

Replace the battery and turn on the phone. Replace the battery back into its compartment and replace the back cover. Turn on your Nokia 2610 phone, and it should boot up. The name of your wireless provider will appear when your phone is turned on.

Allow time for your phone to read the SIM card. Once your phone is booted up, it will say initializing. This means that it is reading your SIM card information. Once your SIM card is read, your phone will go to the home screen. Your SIM card is now activated, and you should be able to access all of your information.

The phone is stuck in a loop cycling on and off. Did not drop or get wet just started shutting down and coming back on - looping

Try removing the SIM card and the memory card. Then try turning it on. In case it still does the same, there might be some problem with the Operating System of the phone.

My viewty keeps switching it self on and off

I have just had the same problem. i was so scared that i had lost all my personal data.
my sim card was years old and as the software on the lg is new it was causing it to shut down and reboot over and over and the only way to stop it was to take out the battery.

This MIGHT help! it helped me.
Take the battery out and put someone else's sim card in (someone who has a new sim card) - they have to be the same network. (if your own sim is really new this may not help) .

put the LG back together and switch on - the phone should start new set up. if it prompts you to copy contacts to phone press no.

if this works then it is a software problem. this may be the best time to back up all your data on your computer via the lg suit.

then put your own sim back in. if the problem still happens then you need to call your phone service provider and get them to refresh your sim card - do the same process as above and this should fix it.

i hope this helps.

T-mobile Dash Won't start

This will fix it:

Turn the phone off, remove the battery for a minute. Replace the battery.

Hold down the right and left soft menu keys simultaneously then press the power button for a couple seconds and release. Keep holding down the soft keys until the hard reset screen displays.

The reset screen will tell you to press 'Send' to reset or any other key to cancel. Press and hold 'Send', which is the button with the green phone on it. After a couple seconds, the device will start to do its thing.

This will take some time so be patient. It will have a question or two as it goes through the process. Answer.

Don't worry, you won't lose your branding (e.g. if you are a tmo customer, you don't lose the ability to have myfavs and your phone keeps the tmo branding/settings).

Blackjack sim card

Well, no. Your sim card must have taken a big jolt to it in order for it not to work. Simple, you need a new one. Got a Sams club near you? They should be able to give you one for free, att corporate stores charge 25.00. But sorry to say you need a new sim.

Blackjack Memory

ok this might work I cannot guarantee it. first back up all of your data onto your computer. After that turn off your phone. then first hold the up button then at the same time hold hold down the power button and you should get to format mode press 1 and it will automatically format it. then it should boot up normally. put the memory card in see if it works and put all of your data back on your phone. hpe this helps with your problems
