Its very simple, remove your SIM from you mobile. Take the eraser you use in school/collage/office/home. Gently rub the metal surfaces of the SIM card. Then clean it with cotton cloth. Refix it in position

Tomtom sim error


Hi there, i had the same problem, device did not recognized my sim card:
1. Sim card could be damaged,
2. Sim card is too big and software not recognize it,
3. Or has been manufactured by less known manufacturer.
4. Sim card slot is dirty, try clean it with clean cotton pad, do not use water - that might damage Your device. Or use, air-spray as it used for cleaning small parts of pc, eg. keyboard, motherboard, etc.
What i have done:
Brought sim card SanDisk 16GB one, since then I have no problems with it.
Hope it helps, take care.

How do i clean my sim card


  • Hi

    To clean your sim card, remove the SIM card from the phone. Rub a dense white eraser along the exposed metal part of the SIM card. Make sure that the eraser is brand new, otherwise you could get the SIM card even dirtier.

  • Remove the back of your phone and the SIM card. Spray canned air into the back of the phone, removing all dust and dirt particles, especially those that could be stuck in the SIM card groove.

    Regards

    I have a motorola clutch my phone was sitting on the able when it lit up! when i grabbed it and looked at it, it restarted itself then the screen said insert sim but the sim card is already in it!


    Your problem could be with the sim card, with the sim interface on the phone and or sim ic on the circuit board.

    1. First, let's check the sim card, switch off the phone > remove the sim card > clean it properly using a small ball of cotton dipped in alcohol or acetone, > let it dry > Now put the same sim card on another mobile > if it's working then go to next step, if it's not, then the problem is with your sim card. You need another replacement.

    2. Now clean the sim interface/connector on the mobile using cotton dipped in alcohol or acetone, After they are dried, insert the sim card and power on the phone. How is it? Is it working now? Let's hope................ go.. yes it's working.
    Oops, it's not, then next step..
    3. Open it apart and clean whatever is possible, [use a soft brush with alcohol or acetone to clean the components]. When everything's dried, assemble it an insert the sim card again. If it's not successful. Your last option is to get it done from a mobile repairing shop or from a servicing center. They will check the phone on the computer using the specific software and hardware, then they will handle with your mobile's hardware, possibly sim ic and sim connector.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    Inncorrect SIM card.


    • Clean the connectors on the SIM card with a soft brush, cloth or q-tip moistened with any type of unflavoured, colourless alcohol.
    • Check whether the card is damaged or worn in any way.
    If your SIM card is damaged or does not work properly after cleaning, please contact your operator to obtain a new SIM card.
    Error message Insert Correct SIM
    Your phone is probably SIM-locked to a specific operator's SIM card. This is usually the case when you buy the phone from an operator. SIM- locked phones may be unlocked – contact your operator for more information.

    Insert sim


    Remove the SIM and clean it with soft cloth.
    Try the SIM on any other Mobile phone.
    You can also try another SIM card on this mobile to make sure the phone is working properly.
    If another SIM card is working properly that means the SIM card you are currently using may be corrupt. Its easy to replace a SIM then replacing a phone.
    Clean both SIM and phone Connectors then try to insert the SIM.

    Thank you for using Fixya.

    1)clean sim card with your finger, then clean sim card holder with a cotton swab. 2)if this fails, go to your local phone shop, and they will switch your number to a new sim card, or inform you that your phone is broken. P.s. do not use lquids for cleaning.
