Re: insert correct sim card

Un-Clocked is temporary, allows free txt and calls for a few minutes.
Un-Locked from a network is what will allow you to use any sim card on your phone.

How can i unclock my sony ericsson wt13i when said insert correct sim

Hi if your sony ericsson WT13i mobile is displaying messages like insert correct sim ,sim invalid and so on once you insert your sim in it then it mean your phone is locked to some other network provider due to this it wont accept any other GSM sim until you unlock it .You can easily unlock your phone using sites like here they are rendering network unlock code for all mobile models at reliable cost .You first check that whether the code is available for your country and network provider .If yes then pay for it and unlock your phone then freely use it with any GSM sim .

I update my w880i asking for "insert correct sim card"please Help me ,how con i solve it?

Hello Sir,
  • Error messageInsert SIM

Your phone has no contact with your SIM card. We recommend that you:
· Clean the connectors on the SIM card with a soft brush, cloth or q-tip moistened with any type of unflavoured, colourless alcohol.
· Check whether the card is damaged or worn in any way.
If your SIM card is damaged or does not work properly after cleaning, please contact your operator to obtain a new SIM card.
  • Error message Insert Correct SIM

Your phone is probably SIM-locked to a specific operator's SIM card. This is usually the case when you buy the phone from an operator. SIM- locked phones may be unlocked – contact your operator for more information.
I think that your W880i was unlocked by a patch before updating, and now, it's relocked because of the patch will disappear when you install new firmware.
