I have a HTC sense from boost mobile it doesn't have a sim card even though it has a slot for one but its stuck on HTC boot screen tried factory reset etc not working still gets stuck at HTC logo white...

Hi there
Just a thought but you mention that your phone doesn't have SIM card in it. Surely the SIM card is the heart of the phone, rather like a CPU in a computer, and during the phone boot process it will stall at a certain point if it doesn't find a SIM card to connect it to a phone network, in your case boost mobile.

when you upgrade to ios 5 its no longer jailbroken and therefore your sim isn't being recognize. as probably your iphone is locked to at&t or verizon while your sim is from a different company then the lock.

I have a sony ericsson t715 mobile i think it is unlocked because when i insert the sim it says unactive sim.i need the unlock code for my sony ericsson t715 if my phone is locked if not please then can...

Hi if the phone is saying in active sim then this means that that sim card can no longer be used its either not been used for ages so the network have turned it off or it has been canceled all you need to do is get a sim card that the phone accepts if your not sure what network the phone is locked to then take it into any phone shop and they will tell you for free what network then phone is locked to and you can als get a sim card from them.

once you have a working sim card you will be able to use your phone, if the phone was locked it would say sos only or emergency calls only so it sounds to me like the sim card is no longer in use so getting a new sim card will solve your problem.

if it is a new sim card then you will need to call your service provider and register the sim this will then work in the phone as long as the phone will accept that network.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Nokia 6500 slide sim card registration problemit normally says sim card registration failed immediately i on it


There are two things causing this problem,either your phone is not registered to the Sim card's network or your Sim card is corrupt

To find out where the problem has come from,you should try another Sim with your phone, if the Sim does not work then the phone is registered to a particular network and no other Sim card will work on it.

If you try another Sim card and it works then your Sim card is corrupt and you should replace it.but to be double sure,test the Sim card on another phone to see if it works,if it does then your phone is not compatible with the Sim card's network but if it does not work then your Sim has to be changed

Sim card not recognised

Try inserting a different Sim card and check if it recognizes. If not you need to replace the sim card plate in the phone.

You SIM card is inactive. You have to make at least 1 paid call every 6 months otherwise your sim is deactivated. If it's new sim has to be activated.
