Re: i misplaced the number of my simcard
I don't know the settings for this phone, but every new phone does display the information of the sim cards number, you need to get to "show own number" and here you have three options, the very first one is the one that shows you the number. If you have another phone that you know it better, try it with that other phone.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Actually the prolem doesnot lie with your phone. ok iill try to give a best solution. 1) did you call you customer care about the Sim card activation,if you Sim card is not activated you might get "INVALID SIM CARD". 2)remove and place you Sim card properly into the phone as put the lock and check whether it fits perfectly.if your misplaced it wont work 3)IF your simcard is old,then its the problem with the sim card,try replace a new one.
i say its not the problem with you phone as long as your phone's menu,keypad,camera etc etc are working fine..
