Either your sim card is not seated correctly, the contacts are dirty, the sim card is dead, the copper contacts in the phone do not reach the sim card or the electronics in the phone are faulty. I guess the technician has already checked most of these common problems and the phone itself is to blame. Did you try another card?

  • What do 'flexribbon and the keypad board' have to do with the 'insert sim card' problem? Do you think a normal person understands what you mean by 'flexribbon'? The problem lies with the sim card and the phone not being able to see it as inserted.

    Please do not offer useless solutions to people.

  • In this case I draw back my remark :)

I put the sim card in and it says insert sim card

Hi, when a phone says insert Sim,is either the Sim card or the Sim seater that allows the Sim to work is bad.

First try the Sim card on another phone and see if it will display insert Sim again.If it display that means the Sim card is damaged. But if no display,that means the Sim tray of your phone is damaged and will need to be replaced.

Contact a skill prsonnel.
Take care.

Phone won't turn on

Try inserting another sim card, if it doesn't boot up, then there's problem with the Handset. Clean the sim car interface and see if there's any twisted or tampered pins/interfaces, if so, try to straighten or else let the technician of the repairing do it for you.. good luck..

Insert sim remains on the screen

My friend, try another sim card first to know if it's a problem with the phone or with the actual SIM card that you have.

If it's the sim card, buy another one but if it's the phone, go to a nearby repair shop to have it fixed.

Hope that'll help you..

Happy Holidays.

INSERT SIM problem

try cleaning the sim with a soft eraser first and then make sure you are putting the sim in the correct way?
the copper plate on the sim must be touching the contacts in the phone.
If this doesn't work then I'm affraid your sim reader in the phone is not working and needs repair by a technician

hmm i think it is not a simple solution for your 6682 phone'
your phone IC driver for simcard socket is damage' your phone can't read your sim'
but first try to check all contacts in your phone sim socket'
and try it to turn on' and if the prob. is desame, your phone IC is damage, offline mode means insert sim....

if there is a cellphone re-pair shop nearby'
much better to bring your phone to a cellphone technician...

here is the pic.
