Question about Motorola Mobility Clutch i465 Cell Phone

1 Answer

Hi, I just purchased my phone last November and the sim card is already bad, so it says. When I power up the phone now it says insert sim card. I have never removed it before and am not abusive with the phone. I did do a master reset while on the phone with Nextel/Sprint Rep. due to low signal strength for past 2 weeks. Thought that might help but it did not and 2 hrs. later the "insert sim" screen popped up and has been there since even after turning off and on numerous times. I hope you have an answer for this, I didnt insure the phone and the sim costs about $50.00. I know this as my husbands phone just did the same thing and we had to replace the sim, his is the same model. I have never had a sim card go bad in any other cell I have owned (and I have had quite a few) so I am hoping this might be fixable? Thanks so much!

You might try switching the sim cards between the phones, see if that helps at all. you can also do a hard reset, remove the battery, then press the reset button for about 5 sec. turn it back on and see if that is the problem. they should not be charging you for replacement sim cards that have gone bad. insurance covers the phone, the card belongs to sprint and if bad, they replace it.

I have recenlty purchased a Nokia C7. Over the last two days it is saying insert sim card, howver the sim card is already inserted. Also I am also getting cut off from calls.


You can try to remove your sim, insert it again and try restarting the phone. Usually this problem is due to sim card not being place properly.

What do you do when a tmobile tap cell phone says sim card not inserted and there is one inserted but its not working


Hi,when a phone says insert Sim when there is Sim card, Means that either the Sim card is bad or the Sim tray where you insert Sim is bad.

First use the Sim card on another phone and see if it will work, if the Sim card works, that means the Sim card tray will need to be replaced.

Take care.

My i856 is keeps telling me to insert the sim card even when the sim is already in the phone. Can some one please help me with this problem? Thanks so much


Hi,

if your phone tells you to insert sim card, try another sim with the phone if that sim card work with the phone that means your phone is bad and if it does not work, you clean the sim seat with a brush and a methylated and dry it up for 30 minutes, if the problem continues change the sim seat.

If after changing the sim seat the problem continues then you have to flash the phone.

flashing of phone is done with a computer using the software you can see a technician to put you through.

Thanks.

Sim card promblem


Hi,
How to correct sim card error / insert sim card

Procedure to follow


Step 1: Check the sim tray or sim seater to see if it it broken, if it is, replace it
Step 2: If the sim seater/tray is not broken, clean the entire terminal.
Step 3: If the sim seater/tray is not directly on the board, trace the broken led and solder it, or you replace the broken led with another sim tray.
Step 4: If it is still not working, change the battery and put a new battery, because a virus infected battery will always give such problem.
Step 5: Finally, if the problem still persist, then check the sim card and replace with another sim card if the former is bad because a bad sim card will always display such message as insert sim card or sim card error.

Take care

New samsung b2100, can't make calls phone says emergency call only!!


Hi,

did you insert a sim card into the phone?

If the sim card is already inserted, then it must be a network problem.

Its either the phone network is bad or your phone service provider does have a limited service at the moment.

Switch of the phone, remove the battery and sim card, put them back into the phone and try again.

If the problem still persists, maybe you should call your phone service provider.

Best wishes.

Says insert sim card when there is one in it


"Insert SIM" message is normally displayed on phones when a SIM card is not inserted on power-on or it does not detect the SIM card inserted.

Likely Causes:
  1. No SIM card inserted or inserted SIM card is damaged
  2. Inserted SIM card not positioned well in such a way as to make contact with the corresponding contact bridges on phone.
  3. Phone locked to a specific network and can only work on other networks when the firmware version is "flashed", that is completely changed to an unlocked version.
  4. The phone might be faulty (try with another good SIM, if you still get thesame message and its not one of the above reasons... it might be a transciever problem or the phone's SIM card slot's pins might be defective).
cheers.
