If the phone is locked to a network it wont take another networks SIM.

If you want to use the phone with a differnt network/service provider you need to get it unlocked.

If not maybe the SIM is scratched or broken?

Good Luck :)

Sophiee.

My flip phone displays message "insert SIM" and


Hello.

You need to have a simcard. If you already have one inserted, then remove the simcard from your mobile phone, then reinsert it back. It is usually found behind the battery. If you are still having the same error, then you might need to change your simcard.

Nokia5130 insert sim problem


If the phone displays the message 'Insert sim' in which you have already inserted a sim card, it is because the phone doesnot reads the sim card and it is currently locked to any particular network. Nokia 5130 phones are old DCT phones which can be unlock easily and freely through online. Search online or get the code from the site Unlock-Free.com where they are providing free unlock codes for certain Nokia phones.

I cannot send message using my w9601 sony ericson phone. I tried to insert my sim to other mobile unit and it works. I think the problem is my phone. the message centre # did not change and i free up space...


for sending text messages :
1. call to your network operator customer care
2. request the message center number...
3.note it down
4. go to message settings>message center number
5. insert the number which is noted by you and save it
this solves your messaging problem ...

For insert sim:


Try with another sim card, clean the sim connector of your phone, reset you phone to Factory Setting (default) using 12345. If you can open it, clean the mobile thoroughly using iPhone solution. This problem is caused by Firmware problem and Hardware problem as well.
OR:
New Software Reinstall in the Phone



Good luck

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

"Insert SIM card" Prompt message


Hello

To avoid this kind of problem from recurring;

Make sure your Sim card is properly inserted

Make sure you avoid hitting the phone on objects and also avoid dropping the phone because this can make the Sim card shift out of place

Goodluck

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!!

Screen says to "Insert SIM", but it is already inserted in phone and has been since phone wasw purchased. I did remove it and put it back in, but it still has same "insert SIM" prompt. Removing battery,...


If it is giving you that message that means it is not detecting the SIM in the slot. You can try removing the SIM and clean it with a soft cloth and reinsert it. You can also try to use any other SIM and make sure if the phone's SIM contact is working properly.

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.
