It means that your sim card is either A: a prepaid out of funds or B: the SIM is inactive due to it not being used for a long long time.

Your Sim may have done it's days... if another SIM will work in the phone, take your Sim to a Retailer of your Service Provider. Ask them for a SIM Swap, this means you will get a new sim, with your old number.

If you haven't topped up on prepay for a long time or haven't used the phone for a while it may mean your sim has been canceled, this means you may have to go to a store and ask them to make it active again, this may include a top up.

Good Luck

Have you used the sim with the phone before? Maybe your phone is locked by the service provider, so it will not work with a foriegn sim, Or you are having an issue with your connection package, or it could be you have a damaged sim or sim card holder, I Had the same issue with my Sony Ericsson.

Heyi have a sony ericsson W995 mobile it has been working fine all day but now it suddenly says insert correct sim card i dont know why its happened.

hi ive had exactly the same problem as you and when i took my phone back to 02 they said it was water damaged, i have since sent it off for a repair with another private company and they have said they are 95% sure its a software fault due to the way my screen was turning black and then saying insert sim, but i shall let you know when i get it back if it has fixed it or it could be something like the sim card reader but please dont be fobbed off saying its water damage they shall just drop a bit off water on the water tab and say its beyond economical repair

My phone become Insert SIM says the SIM is inside the phone what shall i do?

Quick check;

1. Rub the gold plated contact of the SIM card by a soft gel eraser to clean the contact like the way RAM card of computer is clean by others.

2. The phone SIM connector too gently rub it with a soft gel eraser. But take out the battery first.

If the quick fix don't work have it check by a technician to check if hardware or software fault. Commonly SIM connector detached, chip problem or software problem.
