Hi,

Usually the Main Reason for this Message is Faulty SIM.However, as you have tried different SIM'S which are working on other Models, this Confirms that there is a Problem with N85.

Few User Fixable Steps :-

1. Upgrade the Firmware, if available.This seems to do trick with many users it could rewrite the Functions of the Cellphone.

2. This Could be due to Poor Signal Strength.Read the Generic Guide :-

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3933077-no_network_cell_phone

3. As one of the above Points i mentioned in the Guide, is this an Unlocked or Locked one. I have seen many times, the cellphone being locked by the Original Service Provider. So, you need to Contact them.

When you cell phone says"SIM CARD REGISTRATION FAILED" It means that handset has been permanently blocked to either receive or make calls.These are possible reasons :
(1) that cell phone is stolen
(2)the cellphone previous owner took it on a contract and never paid i.e unpaid contract
(3)the previous owner lost it so he/she reported it lost so the network will disable it
(4)the previous owner took it on account and he/she never paid that account and subsequently it was a bad debt or irrecoverable debt-the network will disable that handset.
IN SUCH INSTANCE,IT IS FUTILE TO WANT TO KNOW WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM AS THAT WILL LAND YOU TO TROUBLE>YOU MIGHT HAVE TO ANSWER FOR WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW.
If you have legally bought that phone from a reputable shop,you can take that up with that shop.If you bought it from someone ,hard luck you have lost.
YOU ONLY HAVE A CASE IF YOU HAVE GENUINELY BOUGHT THAT PHONE AND YOU CAN PROVE WITH YOUR RECEIPT THAT YOU HAVE PAID FOR IT,OTHERWISE.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

In all mobile phones there is a SIM IC that has the capabilities of registering the SIM. When this IC fails, then the phone stops registering the SIMs. And if that happens then this IC has to be replaced which is quite a professional job. So please head for the Nokia Care.
I have also heard that Nokia scraps such phones but other private repair personnels can replace this IC.

SIM CARD REGISTRATION failed, N70


Factory resetting the phone will do absolutely nothing with this problem

There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.

1, The sim card is turned off (is it Orange) if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.

2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.

3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.

I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message.

Nokia e65 will not accept any sim card after i unlocked the phone


I would try the unlock again, it sounds like the unlock was unsuccessful otherwise it would have allowed you to use the other sim cards.

Try out different sim card to check phone's proper function. Because the message "SIM CARD REGISTRATION FAILED" is due to network problem or sim card problem.
Hope it works. Don't hesitate to contact me again if it doesn't solve the problem. Thanks
