It is definitely the problem of your sim card, i too had same problem. try any of ur friends sim...i think low quality sim cards are not accepted in any sony ericsson phones...try buying a new sim with 64k memory

Nah its ok, i fixed this problem a long time ago, the problem was i thought that the sim card didnt have to click in to place, i thought the battery holds it in place, but the lady at the stored clicked it into place, i need long nails for it though haha.

There is a good chance that your sim card is too old a version to be read by newer phones. Although the shape is the same, the format just isn't recognized. Time to upgrade your simcard is all.

I have a dead screen on Sony Ericsson s500i (dropped it) and need to access the data/pics etc still on phone. Phone still receives calls but I obviously cant go into any menu etc to access files from the...

Yes you should be able to access the data using a data cable as your computer will see the phone as an external storage device with data on it that can be transferred to your hard drive. You can also remove the media card from your phone and use a media card reader to connect it to your computer as well. Here is a link to the Sony Ericcsson S500i software download site that you can use to manage the media on your phone and potentailly update your device (small chance to revive screen)

My s500i wont read the memory card, hoe do i fix

Try to format your MS from another phone (or a cardreader).
Otherwise do this:
1. Insert MS into your phone
2. Do a master reset: Menu->Settings->Master reset->Reset all

BACKUP YOUR FILES BEFORE THAT! Master reset will delete all your files, contacts, etc.

Forgot pin and now need PUK

The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.

The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.

I have inserted my sim card, but it my soony ericsson S500i still says that has no sim card inserted

If the phone is second hand, then it could be locked to a certain phone company.. Otherwise its hard to tell, if you take it to a phone shop then they would be able to fix it.

You need to buy a different kind. i just bought a 4G Microcenter brand and its doing the same thing.
