Three reasons for this:

1) If you have just obtained the phone and have used your own sim card, your phone is more than likely locked to a particular network. That means that it will only work with a sim card that matches that same network. If you try to use a sim card for a different network, the phone will tell you the card is not accepted. You can obtain unlock codes for most cell phones so that any network will operate.

2) The phone, sim card or both are on a lost or stolen list and the phone has been blocked. If this is the case you can do nothing unless you are an expert. My advice would then be to take it to your local police.

3) Or the sim card is faulty or has poor contacts. You can try gently rubbing the gold coloured contacts with a cotton bud.

Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phone provider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cell phone service provider. To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r4049238-unlock_cell_phone If your phone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides security codes for a small price. http://www.mobileunlockstore.com/?gclid=CKDb2_y2558CFSlJagodxBkDHw http://www.mobileunlocksolutions.com/ http://www.superunlockcodes.com http://unlockcellphonecode.com/

My nokia is not accepts sim card, when i insert sim card it says SIM CARD INVALID? i m from pakistan plz help me,this cell is brought from koria


Hi,
Nokia X6 supports only GSM sim. I think you had inserted a CDMA sim in it. Please check your sim that whether it is CDMA or GSM.
Hope this helps, please rate and let me know if any assistance needed, thanks for visiting fixya.com
