Question about Nokia 3250 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My Nokia 3250 in "offline" mode.

The main screen shows "offline". I have tried to put it in active mode. But the phone always asks for the sim card while the card is already in. There is an "X" mark on where the network antenna display used to be. The phone cannot read or recognise the sim card. However emergency calls can be made. All other calls it asks for sim card.

All other features on the phone work fine.

    I have the same problem but i tried putting other sim cards in, it did the same thing. the problem is not from the sim, its from the phone. when i try to restore it to factory settings, (*#7780#) it ask for a password. i've tried the standard code (12345) and many others but it keeps saying 'code error!'. what should i do?

The problem is with the sim card. try to remove the sim, clean it with a dry cloth and put it back in. if the problem is not solved, take back the sim to your network provider and get a replacement, asuming the sim is damaged

How to make the nokia c5 phone from offline to online


My dear,
Just select settings, profile select the offline mode and it will be activated.
Or, you can switch off the phone, remove the sim card and switch on, it will ask "use phone in offline mode" click yes and phone eill be on in offline mode. When you insert sim card it will still ask the same question select any of your mind and enjoy your phone

My phone nokia 6680 has been in the offline mode.i want remove it


when you insert sim in your phone after using it offline,it should ask you if you want to continue using your phone in offline mode...select NO..Otherwise your phone cannot detect the sim card..clean sim terminals..if problem persists check and reheat sim filter IC..the crystal one, near the sim terminals itself..if all fails then UPP (CPU) or software problem..

Nokia offline


where did you bought your phone? if you bought it from a telecom's promo it means that your phone is locked to a single network provided only. you can ask a technician to have your phone OPENLINE for you to be able to use any kinds of sims.
if it's not the case, check the slot for sim and make sure that the sim is properly placed. restart it without the sim and then restart again but now with the sim.
