I290 is saying insert sim when inserted. my sim card works in other phones and it says the same thing when another sim is inserted

Obviously your sim card reader is bad or the metal clasp that holds your sim card firmly against the reader is warped. This would prevent the phone from reading your sim

My 6300 sim card dont read

Have you tried cleaning your sim by rubbibg it gently with a dry cloth, or adding a small piece of paper to help press down your sim card? If not then try them. The sim or sim reader may have oxidised. this is solved by cleaning. If the piece of paper works, then the sim reader pins have sank. they need to be lifted up gently or replace the whole reader as as one of the pins may be broken

I cant get my new cect i 9 to turn on

It sounds like you dont have the sim card inserted properly. slot to the meatl chip is facing up and all the wy down touching the circuit board. sim 1 slot metal chip is facing down and elevated the width of a sim card off the circuit board. If that doesnt work...

1.) Shut down the phone, remove the SIMS, and replace them back in the slots in the
correct manner again. It may just be that the SIMS aren't in correctly, not pushed far enough
into the slot, or their metal grid isn't making good contact with the SIM's slot pins. Try to
wedge a tiny piece of paper, placed against the side of the SIM without the metal contacts,
between the phone and the SIM so it makes the SIM's metal contact points fit up against the
phone's SIM slot contacts a little more snugly.
2.) Try just switching the SIM(s) to a different slot in the i9 and test again.
3.) Try the SIM(s) in another phone if you can. Though not happening too often, SIMs can go
bad, sometimes working erratically, and can actually be the cause of many odd issues which can
be very hard to diagnose the SIM as the true cause.
4.) Take the SIM out and clean the metal contacts on the back using an ordinary pencil eraser.
5.) Try to get yet a second or third SIM to try in the phone. The more the merrier ... well not
really but you never know, the more SIMs you try the more reliable the testing.

My LG VU is not reading my sim card but when i put Sim card in another phone is works

The sim card goes in the other way. The cut should be on the bottom left facing up. Try it and see if it works.

Motorola W375 Not connecting to Network

Seen it before, very common problem, Sim card not fiting in correctly on this phone. I had a friend with the same problem, I put my Sim card on his phone and it worked for a moment, they we made sure we inserted his Sim card firmly but we had put a small piece of papper behind it to make more preassure so it touches down to the metal part and it worked fine..This is a handset issue though and this is usually an issue that would entitle you to get a warranty replacement through your service provider.
I would say that if this is a brand new phone and if you dont want to have to deal with this issue all the time then defenetly get the phone replaced. Warranty replacements are free.

How do you clean the pins?

the pins are not the problem it is the board so you may need to have the phone main-board replaced but to be on the safe side take the phone and have it checked first at a mobile service shop.

Cell phone sim card

All mobiles have a sim card and are normally located under the battery.

Take the back of your phone, remove the battery and it should be there. Sim cards are normally a small oblong piece of plastic with a corner cut off. The flip side of one will have a metal strip, which is your sim memory. Don't damamge this side of the sim otherwise your card will be useless.

Hope this helps?
