Hi,

This is a simple issue don't worry.First please remove the battery and remove the SIM card and see weather it is being damaged or you can see scratches on the gold plating.Take some cotton and dip it on kerosene and clean it nicely on the edges of the gold plating of the SIM card..Now place it correctly and switch on the phone.Some time loose contact may cause this problem and scratches too....If
still the problem persist check with other Sim card of your friends or family members..
If other SIM card is work's fine then it your SIM card must be replaced by your service provider.Ask him for a free replace..else the Sim card
connector is damaged you have to solder or replace it.If you don't have any hands on,take it to nearest service center.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

My huawei showing to insert uim card


Did you mean insert sim ?...
Some of the reasons sim card not working in your mobile
1.Bad SIM -if it wasn't unlocked you'd get a message asking you to enter a PIN.Get the pin from an online vendor like http://www.mobile-unlocker.com/huawei/rs2wp8/ .
2.With a warning that you have 10 attempts to enter the correct PIN code or it could be locked forever ,if you don't get that message it's "mostly likely" unlocked.BUT find a phone with a known working SIM and see if it will work and connect to the network.
3.May be a hardware problem try flashing with a custom rom.
4..This has to be a problem with the SIM card slot, which is soldered down to the logic board. It's possible that it's a mechanical problem , you might be able to open it up and discover that the card-detect switch is failing to detect SIM card insertion

Showinf offline message when i changed its profile showing message please insert sim card


Check your sim card,might not inserted properly or try to clean the sim card interface using a pencil erase,scrub it,might corroded,try to replace another sim to be able to check if that is the only problem or also check the simcard socket if it is clean,check the pin if its align too, if this thing never works,probably need to repair or replace component such as sim ic,better ask assistance to a mobile service center for parts replacement.

Says insert sim card when there is one in it


"Insert SIM" message is normally displayed on phones when a SIM card is not inserted on power-on or it does not detect the SIM card inserted.

Likely Causes:
  1. No SIM card inserted or inserted SIM card is damaged
  2. Inserted SIM card not positioned well in such a way as to make contact with the corresponding contact bridges on phone.
  3. Phone locked to a specific network and can only work on other networks when the firmware version is "flashed", that is completely changed to an unlocked version.
  4. The phone might be faulty (try with another good SIM, if you still get thesame message and its not one of the above reasons... it might be a transciever problem or the phone's SIM card slot's pins might be defective).
cheers.

IPHONE SHOWING INCORRECT SIM AND ASKING FOR APPROVED SIM


This was attempted on 5.11.2008
Hi I was using ziphone with 1.1.4 firmware and wanted to use Quickpwn 2.1. I restored my Iphone from I tunes by clicking and holding SHIFT then hitting restore in I tunes and after it rebooted it asked me to insert original sim-card. I inserted my pay as you go O2 sim-card, which it was happy with. I went to upgrade to 2.1.1 firmware but it asked me to upgrade to the latest I tunes. After updating I tunes I then uploaded the firmware 2.1.1 I then followed the procedures exactly as explained from QuickPwn, everything worked fine. It came to the end which also unlocked the phone but when putting in the unofficial sim-card, it said “Please insert original sim-card.

Samsung e-250 i need unlock code


Please follow the instructions carefully! Following are the 12-point instructions to unlock your Samsung E250 phone:
1. First do a CUSTOM RESET by tying in:
*2767*2878#
(Phone may display foreign language – don't worry! The last digits after the * will appear as - - - -; this is normal)
2. Turn off your phone
3. Take the battery and SIM out of the phone
4. Take a wrong network SIM (a SIM the phone does not currently accept) and insert it ONLY HALF way in, so when you turn on the phone it won't detect the SIM. Very important so the phone won't ask for network password and will show "Insert SIM" message.
The process of inserting only half of the SIM. I advice you to take care and do it with a soft approach as you might not have done this before.

5. 2. Now put the battery in carfully behind the protruding SIM card and switch the phone on. The phone must show "Insert SIM" message.
6. 3. Without turning off the phone, now push the SIM card all the way in, at this stage the phone must continue to display the "Insert SIM" message with the WRONG SIM inside.
7. Now make a FULL RESET by typing: *2767*3855#

9. Change the NCK password to 8 zeros by typing: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
8. The phone should reboot working with "wrong" SIM inside. (Do not turn off the phone)
10. Disable network lock by typing: #7465625*638*00000000#
12. Check this is done with *#7465625#
If your phone is not unlocked please retry the above ensuring all steps are followed to the letter, 9 out of 10 people who have problems have made a simple error and find that when they repeat all the steps it works.
