    I got a new sim card, and i'm unsure how to clean the reader in the unit, but i'm trying a few methods. I've also done a network reset, and have added tape to the back that it is pushed further forward.

    I need a definitive fix for my jailbroken and unlocked phone. I was working just fine until a few days ago

Are you still in warranty? that sounds like it should be sent back to the dealer or apple for repairs.

As for the sim card issue, try another sim card and try to pull the pins that touch the sim card inside the phone up carefully just a little don't break anything, just pull them up a bit so they touch properly.

if the phone doesn't work with any sim card then its clearly faulty, as for the battery time being just a few hours that also points at a hardware problem, unless your battery is old and worn out.

The device shows no-Sim card error because it cannot sense the sim card in the unit.this happens when either the copper connections on the sim card are weak or has scratches.also quite possible that the internal device connections have gone weak.clean the sim and connections in the unit and card.then check out.if still the same problem then replace the sim card and check out.
Now the battery problem occurs due to weak battery or battery got internally drained so it does not hold charge and does not last long.also the local non branded batteries are not to be trusted.get the original replacement battery from dealer.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

How can i unlock my security code?I forgot my security code &i dont have any idea


a sim card or phone needs a puk code or is locked BECAUSE it is not active,in order to unlock a sim card,or receive a puck code,you need to either,pay the balance owed,buy a new monthly service,open a new contract with a cell service or return the sim card or cell phone to whom it belongs to,we at fixya CANNOT GIVE YOU A NUMBER TO UNLOCK YOUR SIM CARD OR PUK CODE,there is a reason why it is locked,if it was easy to get a code,then anyone could steal your phone and use it and you couldnt stop its use for at least a month.
a phone is jail broken when you alter it to work on a different cell service provider,we at fixya do not jailbreak anything,if it isn't legal,then it doesn't belong here.

Samsung u900 limited service


Is the battery fully charged now???

Limited service, is when your not getting any reception, Samsungs usually always get low reception or no reception at all if the battery is low or dying... Remove the sim card, reinsert it into the handset, charge the phone and try again...

If it still doesnt work and the sim card does work in other handsets, its still covered under the Samsung warranty if its less than 12 months old.

Jailbroke iphone was working fine but now has no service but every thing ealse works fine


First, call your carrier and have them reset you on the network.

If that does not work, put the sim card in a carrier branded phone. (a phone your carrier sells) then back in the iphone.

If that doesn't work it means that the turbosim (a very thin device that is installed on the sim card) has gone bad. This is the device that actually unlocks the iphone.

You will either need to get a new one, or look in to a software unlock that doesn't utilize the turbosim.

T mobile wing unlock code


Call your cell phone carriers customer service and they may email you the unlock code and instruction for free within 24-48 hours. Tmobile did this for me several times on different phones. Tmobile will send you the unlock code and instructions via email for free for their customers within 24-48 hrs. But you have to call their customer service (US) 800-937-8997. I tried emailing them initially but no response. When I called they were so accomodating and didnt even ask why I wanted the phone unlocked.
Once they send you the code its simply inputting the code they provide. However to do this you must first put in a non tmoile sim. As far as I know this is only cingular or a foreign pay as you go sim card. Luckily I had a foreign sim that I saved on a prior trip as I have other unlocked phones and this worked for me. None of my friends had cingular so I could not use their Sim to do the unlock code on my phone. Nextel, Sprint and I think Verizon also dont use sim cards.
Alot of cell phone stores and kiosks will also unlock any cell phone for you for about $30.00. You may have to leave the phone with them and pick it up later like an hour or two later if they are busy.
