Check if your SIM works in other phone. If it doesn't change the SIM. If it works then flash the phone.

I have a sony ericsson J10i2, I bought it off ebay, it's saying i have an inactive sim, and there's a handset next to the network bar with a red line through it. I have signal on my phone, but i can't make...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Inactive SIM message may arise due to more than one issues. First things first check the hardware of your phone, to do this Put out the SIM card and check what happens. If it shows insert SIM card, its normal. If it shows the same inactive message then hardware malfunctioning.
Ok if the hardware is ok, then its simple. Inactive SIM means that your SIM card is not being able to register your Network carrier. The Phone with a red-line means SIM card registration failed. Although the signal radar works. This may be due to 2 issue; either there is a issue at the Service provider End, to check this call the service providers from other cell or land-line and check the status of your connection against this SIM Card No. If they say everything is ok. Then Its confirmed that your Phone is Network locked (Can only be used for one specific network) In this case coordinate with the seller.
I hope you will have a clearer picture now.

If you have any Confusion, questions or issues regarding your problem do tell me.

My w350i keeps on displayin a message on my screen that says inactive sim


Hello there,
When it says inactive SIM, it means that the SIM is not working. You need to replace it with a new one. The possible cause for this inactive SIM is that the PUK code was entered incorrectly 7 times.
Good luck.

Phone saying inactive sim its a k850i sony ericson


I assume you did not purchase the phone from a eputable source. The inactive sim message appears in this way when a person reports a sony ericsson phone lost or stolen. The IMEI number (unique to every handset) is used to disable functions of the sim reader.

My SGH-T629 came from the U.S. how can i make it capitable with the sim card in the phillipines


A. Turn on phone with full battery and non-T-Mobile SIM in place.
Allow phone to completely boot up to Wrong SIM screen. B. Enter from Wrong SIM Screen *#7465625# to confirm lock status C. Scroll through Interrogate Screen 1. Network lock - Active (this is the one you'll be deactivating)
2. Subset lock - inactive
3. SP lock - inactive
4. CP lock - inactive
5. SIM Card lock - inactive
6. Activa lock - inactive
7. Auto network lock - inactive
8. Auto subset lock - inactive
9. Auto SP lock - inactive
10. Auto CP lock - inactive
11. Auto SIM Card lock - inactive
12. Phone lock - inactive D. Push "C" button under navigation button to clear Interrogate screen back to Wrong SIM
screen E. From the Wrong SIM screen enter the following: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000# Those are two series of eight zeros. The phone will not show the zeros but will show dashes in their place. Phone may make a small tone and at the bottom of the screen it will read "Network Personalized" or perhaps "Network Already Personalized" F. Now input the following from whatever screen shows up: #7465625*638*00000000# (again this is a series of eight zeros) Phone may make small tone and will read "Network Lock Deactivated" G. Turn off phone
H. Re-start the handset and allow it to reboot.
J. Enter from Standby Screen *#7465625# to confirm lock removal status K. Scroll through Interrogate Screen 1. Network lock - inactive (note that this lock is now inactive)
2. Subset lock - inactive
3. SP lock - inactive
4. CP lock - inactive
5. SIM Card lock - inactive
6. Activa lock - inactive
7. Auto network lock - inactive
8. Auto subset lock - inactive
9. Auto SP lock - inactive
10. Auto CP lock - inactive
11. Auto SIM Card lock - inactive
12. Phone lock - inactive
That's it. Your phone is ready to accept SIM cards from just about any GSM mobile telephone service provider in the world. If you received a "wrong password" message you will need to insert a working SIM and reset the password to the default 8 zeroes "00000000". After that you may try this process again and it should work.

From orange to O2


you could try this

By doing the reset (1st temp) you will lose all your
data ie contacts, messages, photos, videos etc etc so
back them up on your pc first.
Take out your sim card and follow the instructions below :
1st temp. put this number in the keypad
*2767*3855# let it reboot(restart)
now its ready for permanent.
Put in a sim card of a network that the phone won't
except and follow the instructions below.
( If you can't type anything with a locked sim
card inserted just take it out and do the next
step without a sim card in the phone)
Don't worry if your screen shows - - - - - - - when typing
it is supposed to do this.
Permanent.
ENTER :
*7465625*638*00000000*0000000
0#
NEXT ENTER
#7465625*638*00000000#
AND THEN *#7465625# to check the locks....all locks are
inactive...these are all the locks...
network lock - inactive
subset lock - inactive
sp lock - inactive
cp lock - inactive
sim lock - inactive
activa lock - inactive
phone lock - inactive
auto network - inactive
auto subset lock - inactive
auto sp lock - inactive
auto cp lock - inactive
auto sim lock - inactive
Enjoy !
This procedure does not change your imei number at all
