There are two things causing this problem,either your phone is not registered to the Sim card's network or your Sim card is corrupt

To find out where the problem has come from,you should try another Sim with your phone, if the Sim does not work then the phone is registered to a particular network and no other Sim card will work on it.

If you try another Sim card and it works then your Sim card is corrupt and you should replace it.but to be double sure,test the Sim card on another phone to see if it works,if it does then your phone is not compatible with the Sim card's network but if it does not work then your Sim has to be changed

    i also have nokia 6500slide and having sim card registration problem too.
    the problem is not of sim card because i tried minimum 4networks and having same problem.
    the problem with 6500slide is the phone automatically shows sim card registration failed warning and some times shows the insert sim option then open and close the slide for 2,3 times its automatically pick the signals and sim and some time you have to restart the phone in order to work the sim.

My nokia 6500 is saying the sim card registration has failed what do i need to do? i also get no service and no signal this has only occured today i have had the phone for 12 months

In this case, most of the times the SIM card is at fault. Check the SIM card in some other phone or try some other SIM in this phone. If some other SIM works in this phone or the SIM doesnot work in some other phone then you need to get your SIM card replaced.

Sim card registration failure

Either the SIM has not been put in properly or the SIM holder is faulty.

My SIM card is active in other phones but when i put it in the nokia 6500 slide it keeps saying SIM registration failed, i need to know how to unblock the phone as i have rang orange and they say the SIM...

You need to buy an unlock code for the carrier the phone is locked on. eBay is usually a good place to start looking, and these codes are relatively inexpensive

Sim card registration failed on nokia 6500 slide

Place some folded paper (3,4,5,6 times) between the sim card and the sim card holder. It should fix it. I have an E65 and had this problems for two days after buying it. Since I fixed it 3 months ago, never had this problem again. Hope it works for you too.
