Sim card error: contact sim card provider

My p990i, when i got it was working w/ any network or sim card providers.
but after several weeks a msg "sim card error, contact simcard provider" appears. i tired to contact sim card providers, the problem was temporarily resolved. but after 2 weeks the same problem appears. tried to contact again the network providers but they said that the problem is not w/ the network anymore but w/ the unit.
before when i touch the signal indicator when the phone was still working, a msg gprs(detached) but now everytime i touch/press the signal indicator msg gprs(attached). is it possible that i could detached the gprs?...how?
please help me.
thanks!!!

    Same as described.
    Is it because my credit expired?

    I have an m600i and just experienced the exact same problem. Australian vodafone branded phone, unlocked and debranded out of contract to latest world generic 1 firmware. I had the GPRS detached message earlier in the day, and just now it dropped out of a call with "sim card error, contact sim provider" These UIQ3 phones really are pieces of junk.

Sim card error contact sim card provider


This is probably a problem with your SIM card. You should visit your carrier's store or contact them and request a replacement SIM. They probably will not charge you at all.Getting a new SIM is definitely the first step.

Thanks!!

Tip

Phone displays "SIM card rejected" or "SIM card unaccepted".


The SIM (subscriber identity module) card is a small card inside your phone that establishes a network connection. The SIM card is provided by your operator or service provider. In most cases, they are the best source of assistance with SIM card problems. Your phone may display a SIM card error message if:
  • The SIM card is out of alignment. If the phone has recently been dropped, bumped, or opened, the SIM card may need adjusting. Follow the SIM card installation instructions in your user guide.
  • The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code is entered incorrectly multiple times. This can inactivate the SIM card. If inactivation appears to be permanent, contact your operator or service provider for a new SIM card.
  • You have recently changed service providers. In this case, either your SIM card or your phone may be configured for your previous operator and may require reconfiguring. It may also be that your phone is configured so that it cannot be used with a SIM card from a different operator or service provider. Please contact your current operator or service provider for assistance.
If none of the situations above apply and you continue to receive this error message, your SIM card may be damaged. Please contact your operator or service provider to have the SIM card tested and/or replaced. Or alternately, bring your phone to the nearest Nokia Care point for inspection

Ciphering


Ciphering is mainly caused due to old sim cards.There are two ways in which youo can solve this
1)Remove your sim and insert it again and see if the problem persists
2)Go to the customer care center of operator that provided you with sim card and demand for a new sim with the same number.You'll get this for free and insert it and enjoy.

Unlock code for my p990i


If you want to unlock the Sony to use it with a different phone provider then this may help you.
When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.

Need unlock code for sony ericsson z550a for a tmobile SIM


Hi, If you get error message as PIN blocked. Unlock?" You have entered the wrong PIN code too many times. You need to unlock your phone using the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) code. Your PUK code is provided by your network operator. If you get error message as Insert correct SIM" You have inserted a SIM card that is not supported. Insert correct SIM card, or contact your Service Provider for a SIM unlock code. If you get error message as Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone is locked and you need to unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it. I Hope it helped you. Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

No sim card inserted?


no sim card error is not virtual error from service providers, its due to your phone hardware problem. if your sim was not working due to service provider it will show your card registration failed. but you are getting sim card not inserted means your sim card contacts are not touching the phone sim contacts. try to refix your sim card properly. then try to reboot your phone.

SIM card from old phone won't work in new phone


How old is your current SIM-card ? There was a change in operating-voltage on the SIM-cards and its a known issue that the P990i wont accept "older" cards. Contact your provider and get a newer card. You could perhaps try one of your friends SIM-cards in your phone, before ordering a new one, if the card is newer than the one you have.
