Sounds like a silly question but did you update the phone via the SE suite or via a flash updater? there may be problems if you left your sim in, if you flashed the phone. If you updated via the SE suite then take a look at the troubleshooting guide and moan to SE. As long as you haven't voided the warrenty on your phone there should be no problem with SE or your service provider repairing your phone for free. :)

Hope this helps. One last thing to try is to out another sim in the phone and see if it works. With any other provider except O2 you will need to use a sim the same as yours.

My sony ericsson keeps saying inactive sim turning itself off n on again then searching n coimg back to orange it has now started to delete my call history when it does this


Sony ericsson phones are notorious for this problem. Its a software prob. You can try and update the software on your handset via sony ericsson website, or take it back to the retailer and they will send it back to sony ericsson ( if you bought it from network retailer only) places like argos etc wont touch it. Try going to settings on your phone, below profiles it should say update.....select that and you should be able to get a newer software that might not have any bugs. good luck!!

Cant unblock my sony erricson phone it keeps saying sim inactive


Could be two reasons: Your phone is already blacklisted (if bought secondhand the owner reported lost/stolen) or the phone is locked to certain network. And might be your SIM was deactivated (try it in different device if works).

Inactive sim!!!!


hi Naidoo.
not sure if this forum will help you out but have a look.
K800i inactive sim
plus found this on the internet.

it may be the software needs reloading, if you download the "sony ericsson pc companion" to your pc you can connect your 800i by usb lead, then click on the companion panel for updates, it will give you the option to repair phone, select this option and all your software will be renewed. or if you prefer to contact orange first just go onto their website and the phone numbers will be there.
(AND THIS)

U just istall p.c. suit of sonyerricsson and take backup of ur data,, then u need to flash ur handset from sony erricson service centre.

OR THIS MIGHT HELP.
