Its recognising the simcard

Hello sir,

my nokia 8800 for some unknown reason its not recognizing the At&t simcard at all,from the time i moved from long beach,california to virginia in Minnesota.But if i put the same card in different phone,the simcard works.
The phone works ok,it does all that it has to do when u switch on after it is switched off,other than recoginizing the simcard of At&t.

I did even try putting new simcard too,but still no luck....

can u please help me in this nokia 8800 issue of mine.

My nokia 6300 can not read my installed sim card, though i have attached the simcard, it is reflecting in cp monitor no simcard inserted. What would be the possible problem?

The Simcard might gone bad due to some reason, try this sim to other phone, if it not works then issue another sim to your service provider.
otherwise the contact at phone may gone bad, needs repair.
Good Luck

you can upgrade your phone using a data cable and nokia pcsuite with the latest software from nokia. please make sure your battery is fully charged. this should also resolve your memory card problem as your card may have a bigger capacity than your phone software can recognise.

Hi if it says that then the chances are that the simcard is blocked or not accepted on that phone so either try another sim card in the phone and also do you know what network the phone is on cus if you put different netwrok in it wont recognise the simcard
