Hi. If your SIM is under postpaid plan, telcos usually activate the SIM within 24hours. If your SIM is prepaid, you may have to call the vendor and ask for replacement. SIM with "registration unsuccessful or rejected" is either not yet activated or expired. If you get "Invalid SIM" that means either the phone is locked to other network or the SIM is not active. Since your phone and SIM are new, it is more likely that your SIM is not yet activated. Please call your vendor if SIM is still rejected after 24hr period. Thanks.

SOURCE: I bought an orange rio

If your phone displays the 'Invalid simcard' then your phone is currently locked to particular network. You need to unlock to use it with other network.
There can be many ways to Unlock your phone. As far as i know unlocking by codes is the simple and safe way. I will suggest the website Unlock-zone.com which is doing good service and they were recommended highly in the cell phone forums.
I used them to unlock my cell phone. contacted them and within 30 mins i had my unlock code and my phone was unlocked.
Hope this helps.

Phone says sim card registration has failed


When the message sim card registration failed comes up it is usually as a result of one of 2 things the first being that the phone has not recognized the sim card due to an improper fixing or the sim card has become faulty. Simply try the sim on a different mobile device to determine if the sim card is still good.
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

I can't use my Nok 5230. I get a message: SIM card registration failed. I tried the SIM in a different phone and it's worked and I tried an other SIM in the Nok 5230 and didn't worked too. What can I...


this is most common when your phone is a branded phone that has been unlocked(branded being it was made to work with a particular network but was unlocked and can now partially work with other networks). in this case, the phone may find it difficult to recognize your sim card, the way the phone is made is in such a way that when a sim card of the network it is branded to is inserted, it would register it straight away but in a situation where it does not recognize the sim card, it is unable to register it. this brings about the sim registration failed.
sometimes you may lose service on your phone too depending on the level on your sim card.
if it happens that the mobile phone was not branded to any network before, then you have to change your sim card to a more developed one(maybe you get a replacement from your network provider because they produce sim cards differently.like the previous ones may not have some features or have a high level of attention and therefore needs to be changed with a more recent one)
hope this helped you? please rate

SIM CARD REGISTRATION failed, N70


Factory resetting the phone will do absolutely nothing with this problem

There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.

1, The sim card is turned off (is it Orange) if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.

2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.

3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.

I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message.

Sim card registration failed


turn off your phone, get the sim card and reinsert again, and then restart your phone, if not work try to test it with other simcard, check also the simcard holder if something is blocking it, clean it if its dirty, if it not work have it for a cellphone repair
