First you need to make sure that your phone is actually working in the band that your wireless carrier uses. If your carrier uses a 850mhz. band and your phone is a triband without the 850mhz. band it will always says emergency and would never register. Borrow another Sim card that uses either 1800 or 1900mhz. band. If it register, then the phone is triband and your wireless carrier uses 850mhz. band. Another thing is to check the imei number, if they don't match, you need to fix'em. Compare the imei numbers (*#06#) with the one in the battery compartment.

My sciphone is reading my sim card but cannot make call. I am able to access all phone numbers on it but I cannot make calls. Do I need to set up the network somehow? I have AT&T with full bars on my...


Hi,the problem is obviously from the network settings on the sciphone,here is a solution,

1,Try to re-insert the sim card in the phone.

2,Go to the mobile connections on your sciphone and ensure the radio(service) connection is switched on.

3.If after these steps,the problem persists,then it seems your sciphone has a network problem which can only be fixed by a mobile phone engineer.

Take care

SIM CARD REGISTRATION failed, N70


Factory resetting the phone will do absolutely nothing with this problem

There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.

1, The sim card is turned off (is it Orange) if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.

2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.

3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.

I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message.

You SIM card is inactive. You have to make at least 1 paid call every 6 months otherwise your sim is deactivated. If it's new sim has to be activated.
