SIM card registration failed

I have had this phone for almost 2 years. All of a sudden my sim card has stopped working in this phone. We have tried another phone and the sim works in it. The message that the phone gives when inserting a sim card is:
SIM card registration failed. Thank's.

    I have the same problem. I have a n93i and it says "sim registration failed" or "insert sim card" when in fact my sim card is inserted properly. But the sim works great in my nokia 3315. So what's really the problem? I've been through hell trying to get my n93i repaired. And I've been getting the run-around from nokiacare. Finally they told me that the prongs or the groves where the sim card is held, is not fine enough to read the sim card or the sim card holder isin't tight enought to read it. My phone is still in repair and I should get it back in the next 2 weeks. I hope this would fix the problem because this is my 3rd time give it to nokiacare. If this fixes the problem, I'll be sure to let you know. Hope this gave you some insite on what may be wrong with your phone. Good Luck!!!

For this we cannot make it ready try for some other sim card if it is working no problem other wise that mobile is a scrap mobile which we will be saying in nokia. Actual the problem is that there will be a command coming from the main ic called RAP it fails to give the command for this reason it comes sim reg failed.

Phone says sim card registration has failed

When the message sim card registration failed comes up it is usually as a result of one of 2 things the first being that the phone has not recognized the sim card due to an improper fixing or the sim card has become faulty. Simply try the sim on a different mobile device to determine if the sim card is still good.

I have nokia 5800 it worked fine all these years but suddenly last night when i tried to make it work it said sim card registration failed my friend asked me to try it in some other phone but the same...

If the sim gives the same error in both the phone, Please call the respective customer care from some other phone and let them know.

I can suggest, to get a duplicate sim - if the sim is damaged physically.

If it showing you that sim card registration failed then then make sure your sim card is work or not. if your same Sim card works in different phone. it could be that your phone has been blocked by the network

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.

SIM card registration failed

You might have filled up the memory to the brim and the phone doesn't have enough to switch on.
Try reformat to original settings. anything you stored on the phone will be lost.

How to reformat your phone, first turn it OFF. Press * 3 send at the same time and keep them pressed while you turn the phone on.
Give it time to work.

Remember, do not let go the 3 keys until you see the formatting screen.
After a few minutes when the process is over, your Nokia N70 will be back to the original delivered system.
