Question about Sony Ericsson W760i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Inactive SIM problem in Sony Ericsson w760i.

I have a Sony Ericsson w760i. I bought it second hand. After using it for few months the SIM card stop functioning. The screen all the time says "inactive SIM ". I tried resetting the phone and updating the software but nothing worked. Some says it is a problem with the SIM reader, some other says it is blocked by sattelite and it can only work in Asian countries. ( Though it has been working well in the country where I live ). What is the solution? Thank you for your help.

    I also tried other SIM cards from the same operator and from others but did not work either.

Hi mslsweden,
It does sound like the sim reader might be malfunctioning or the sim card could be worn.
in this case i would recommend you simply try another sim card with the same network before assuming its the sim card reader.

I hope this helps :)

Inactive sim is usually related to your SIM Card, you should try reinserting your SIM card again, to see if it works, or simply insert your current SIM card into another phone to check if there is any service. should both failed. It should be your SIM card problem, you can contact your service provider or carrier to have a replacement SIM.

Hi i bought a sony ericsson w910i of the internet its on orange but said inactive sim so i took it to be unlucked but still it says inactive sim what can i do to solve the problem


Your phone may have been blacklisted if you're using it on the same provider for which it was made. Call your provider and give them the IMEI number which is on the back behind the battery to ensure that it's clear. If it is clear, then your SIM card may be bad. Try a friend's SIM card to test.

Inactive sim


This is a known design flaw with the w760i - it occurs when the phone requests info from the SIM (building contact list etc.) and the SIM connection is lost. This would happen on any phone but the w760i has a shock protection design issue whereby closing the slide quickly causes the SIM to disconnect. You should be able to replicate the issue by turning the phone on and slamming the slider shut as soon as the phone shows your network name. Leave the phone on for a bit and you will feel the phone buzz and 'Inactive SIM' will display, the phone will then reboot.
