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.

SOURCE: y blackberry keeps saying insert sim card when its

check that the sim card is clean and not damage din anyway. Also check the connections on the blackberry where the SIM goes.

If the problem persists then go back to your network provider and see what they suggest. If they cant help maybe contact blackberry.

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

SOURCE: i have a brand new

Hi. If your SIM is under postpaid plan, telcos usually activate the SIM within 24hours. If your SIM is prepaid, you may have to call the vendor and ask for replacement. SIM with "registration unsuccessful or rejected" is either not yet activated or expired. If you get "Invalid SIM" that means either the phone is locked to other network or the SIM is not active. Since your phone and SIM are new, it is more likely that your SIM is not yet activated. Please call your vendor if SIM is still rejected after 24hr period. Thanks.

My pantech is brand new. it worked fine when i first got it but out of no where it keeps saying insert sim. my sim card is already in it. what do i do? this is the secound time this has happened.


Try removing the SIM card and clean the contacts on the SIM card and the cell phone with ethyl alcohol, then replace the SIM card. This will make sure the SIM card makes proper electrical contact.
If this does not work the the SIM card may be faulty, you need to contact your cell phone provider for a replacement SIM card.

Phone Keep saying " Sim


Hi! The phone might have been black listed (blocked) or you might not be inserting the sim card correctly.
To find out if your phone has been blacklisted then you could ring up your network provider and give them your phone serial number and they should be able to tell you straight away.
There could be a problem with the connection port of the sim card.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply

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.

'Insert SIM'


If you are trying to use an old sim-card from another phone you may find that it won't recognize it.

The older sim cards just aren't up to the job the newer handsets require so now we have more powerful and higher voltage sim-cards.

Try a sim card from a friend with a new handset and see if that works in your phone.

You may have to go get a new sim.

Says insert smart chip


smart chip means the SIM card.

try cleaning the metallic part of the SIM card with a cloth and the metal connectors on the phone with cotton bud etc.

Put it back and try again.

If not working grab another SIM card (working - friend's etc) to test.

If still not working, send to service centre.
If working for other SIM card then replace your own SIM card.

Phone says no sim card inserted


Your phone will operate without the sim card. But you won`t be able to make calls etc.
Make sure it`s inserted correctly and use a dry piece of cloth to clean the sim card.
Hope this helps
