You need to Unlock your sony ericsson phone from network lock to use with other GSM Network Sim card...Without Unlocking you can't use with other GSM Network Sim card.Get the unlock code from the site Onlinegsmunlock.com/unlock-your-phone/rs7wp2/ and unlock it easily...............
If you get error message as PIN blocked. Unlock?"
You have entered the wrong PIN code too many times.
You need to unlock your phone using the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) code. Your PUK code is provided by your network operator.
If you get error message as Insert correct SIM" You have inserted a SIM card that is not supported. Insert correct SIM card, or contact your Service Provider for a SIM unlock code.
If you get error message as Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone
is locked and you need to unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it.
I Hope it helped you.

First need to find the IMEI for your phone. Power on phone
and type *#06# this will display the IMEI. You will need the IMEI to get the corresponding unlock code. Every phone has a different unlock code. Then call your provider and request the unlock code.

How old is your current SIM-card ?
There was a change in operating-voltage on the SIM-cards and its a known issue that the P990i wont accept "older" cards.
Contact your provider and get a newer card. You could perhaps try one of your friends SIM-cards in your phone, before ordering a new one, if the card is newer than the one you have.
