Nokia N73, try to reformat your phone, first turn it OFF. Press * 3 send at the same time and keep them pressed while you turn power on.
Give it time to work.

    If it's offline choose another profile.

    press the OFF button once quickly and choose General profile.

Docomo simcard regestration failed

Try other company sim-cards......if they work....then try other docomo sim...if this works ur sim is faulty........get a new sim.......if ur set reads other co sim and not docomo....its ur sets fault.......u will have to change FEM(N2700 in pic.) ic...(as it has inbuilt duplex er i.e. antina switch which can cause this fault)... this ic can be obtained from a dead Nk2700....

There is another way to confirm this without dismantling ur set........switch on ur set with sim....ignore sim reg fail message.....go to menu>settings>phone settings>network>change this to manual > ur phone should search for network.....if it does not then either ur sim has fault or sim section......if it starts searching then let it search......after some time network service provider list will appear....on the top it should be tata docomo......if its not there then FEM ic to be replaced.....if it appears select it......if now sim registeration fail appears ....for ur and other tata docomo sim...then get software of ur set reloaded......if only ur docomo sim fails...get sim replaced

When i turn my phone on it comes up with sim card registration failed


Welcome to Fixya. This is not a problem with the phone. SIM Registration Failed means that the network is not accepting the SIM card for some reason. So you will not be able to place/receive calls at all. Call customer service of the sim card provider. and ensure the activation is ok. Once the activation is done correctly, the towers will accept the SIM card again. If that doesn't work, then you need to tell them to give you another SIM.

Thanks for using Fixya

How do i unlock a samsung tocco lite s5230?

i am exactly not sure there this will solve your problem,but lets try it, just Reset eeprom by doing the following to ensure factory settings.
1) *2767*3855# phone will reboot to original settings
2) *2767*2878# phone will reboot

3)Press *#06# to get imei, write that down
4)Insert diferent sim card from different company
5)Turn on, at sim error enter *2767*688 imei number followed by# (example)*2767*688352787123423456# (imei has 15 numbers also located on back of phone)
6) Phone will reboot to your new service provider, enter *0141# then hit call button
Phone should say personalized. turn off phone and insert different sim card. power back on. at sim unlock code screen enter 00000000 8 zero's hit enter
This should unlock the e715 with the updated firmware
Try at your own risk!!!! worked for me but who knows
