Hi the only thing you can try is clean the contacts on the phone and the sim card also you can pack a bit of paper on the back of the sim not the side with the contacts on it this will push the sim card down onto the contacts further hopefully getting it to work.
if it still dont work then check the sim card works in another phone or try putting a different sim card in and see if you get the same message if it still dont work then the sim card reader needs replacing you cant do this yourself as it requires soldering and to take the phone apart it needs to be done in certain order else you can warp the board and destroy the board completely

SOURCE: INSERT SIM

It might be that there is some corrosion on the leads that connect to the SIM card. You can try using a soft pencil eraser on the leads to see if you can clean them up, being careful not to get any debris from it in the phone to avoid any future strange complications.

I had this problem, and it resolved itself. I have no idea what prompts it, but try waiting a few hours. Turn off your phone and wait, keep checking back.

Remove the card, and dip a q-tip in some rubbing alchol, use the q-tip to clean the gold contacts on the back of the sim card and let dry for a minute. Reinsert the card and power up the phone.

SOURCE: WHY DOES MY PHONE SAYS INSERT SIM

try taking SIM and battery out placing it back in an powering on.

If you try this and it still does not work you may need a new SIM card. Take it to a local dealer they should have a new SIM they will put your number on it and you will be back in business.

If the new SIM doesn't not work you will now know it is your Phone, which means time for a new one.

good luck

My phone keeps saying insert sim but the SIM card is already in


If you're able try the SIM in another phone to verify it's working.

One of my older phones didn't hold the SIM card very tightly so I put 4-5 small pieces of paper behind it laying flat to keep the connection tight.

My phone keeps saying "insert


just clean the base of the sim (the the six golden parts) clean them with a blade.
the problem is becuase they gets rust on them .but you have to be carefull while you are cleaning .clean them so carefully by removing the rust wich is stuck on the golden metal of the base of the sim.
then it will never ask , to insert sim card.

Samsung Geino, my sim is inserted but my phones keeps saying insert sim i carnt phone anyone blah blah help


Hi,when a phone keeps saying insert Sim card, is either the Sim card has problem or the Sim tray of the phone is bad and will need tobe replaced.

To confirm, Take the Sim card and insert it into another phone, If it still says insert Sim, that means the Sim card is bad, But if the Sim card works with another phone, That means the Sim tray of the phone is damaged.

Sim tray is located on the phone where you insert your Sim card in on the phone to make sure the Sim works with the phone.

Have a nice day.
