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?

Do you get this error message?As far as I know there are three chances to get this is the sim may not have been inserted properly...try to insert it in the correct position.There may be an error with the sim try to insert other sim cards into the phone.Another chance to get this error is when you try to insert a sim other than the locked network.If your mobile is locked with a particular network then it will work with only that and will not be able to recognize/accept other networks.Inorder to unlock your phone you can either approach the network provider or third party unlocking vendor like and remove the network lock.
Even after all this the problem persist it may be due to some hardware problem try to get in touch with the nearby mobile store.

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
