Question about Nokia 6230i Cellular Phone

Rejecting SIM card

My Nokia 6230i is rejecting any other SIM Card. It says "Insert SIM Card" when ever I put one.
However the phone only accepts one SIM Card - the one am using now. This means I cant switch to another service provider.

Please help.

Re: Rejecting SIM card

No, it means that the contacts for the sim is somehow damaged - maybe 1 of 6 is pushed in too much or broken.
Take a look - otherwise a repair will cost $35-50

Rejecting phone

You have to replace the SIM EMI Filter. It's a very small chip part near the sim connector. Replace it or clean it.
