Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman® W880i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Sim Card I have brought a new mobile phone from Orange. Because it was an upgrade, i was given a new sim card. I requested to keep my number. They said that was no problem and told me that i should switch to the new sim card 2 hours after i had brought it. when i got home i started it up and a text message said 'sim update'. I ignored it because it was only one hour after purchase. It got to 1:30pm which was the required time, so i tried the new sim card. I tried to send an sms message but its unavailable at the menu. And i was unable to access internet either. I then raced back to the Orange shop and the staff told me it could be up to 24 hours until the new sim was activated. They said to keep swiching it on and off every hour until i got the text message. I have tried sending messages to my phone but they are not sening. Its been 28 hours sinch purchase and my sim still doesnt help. Any advice will be extremely helpful, Thanks

I havent used my mobile for some time nad now it seems to be cut off what do i need to do


you either need to contact your service provider and ask them to reconnect your number (specific to the SIM card installed) or get a new SIM card and install it in your handset.
The first option may incur a reconnection charge from your service provider (depending on network and location i.e: country)
The second option will likely mean a fee for the SIM card and most definately a new number to go with it.
Please note, this advice is given according to UK mobile networks and there are a couple of service providers who will supply SIM cards free of charge-namely O2 and Orange.

I have my orange sim card with me and will like to retrieve my phonebook page but need my orange puk code. what do I do?


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider.
your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone.
this will then allow you to access the sim card.

The only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider as their is no where else that keeps these codes, if you still have the card the sim card was attatched to then it will be written on their but if you no longer have this then the only way your going to get the code is by calling your service provider, they wont charge you for this as the code belongs to you,

you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I have an old Nokia 6310 on the UK Orange network, I now live in Spain and have bought a sim card on the Spanish orange network, have entered the card and the pin number and now it says `Telefono...


Hi,the message simply means your nokia 6310 only recognizes the UK orange sim card and restricts other sim card which implies that you need the unlock code for your nokia 6310.
Here is my solution;
1,Copy out the IMEI number of your phone behind the battery slot in the phone,because you will need it.

2.Call the customer care services of the UK orange network on this number;+4407973100150,

3,Explain the situation to them and request for the unlock code of your nokia 6310,which will be given to you for free.

Have a nice day as you solve this problem

Take care

I have inserted my orange payasyougo sim card into my mobile phone and a message on the screen comes up "insert sim". Does this mean my simcard is broken, or can it be fixed?


Your phone may be locked to a different network. Is it an orange phone? If this is the problem then you'll need to get the phone unlocked to all netorks. If this is not the problem and it is an orange phone then phone orange and they should send you a new sim with the same number upon request.
