Try rigorously cleaning the sim card and phone connections (also battery connections - after reading forums the batteries on V3's are often to blame for their problems) with a cotton bud then leave the phone off without the sim card in it and charge it overnight. Then put in the sim card and turn the phone on. This might help. My V3 often says Insert SIM and it is very annoying so i'm getting rid of it but those methods have worked for me.

Hope this helps

Even I inserted the sim card phone shows Insert sim card?How to solve it?


Well it is either a problem with the SIM card or the phone. First you should test out your SIM card.

Put the SIM in a friend's phone. If you put the SIM card in this other phone but it still says insert sim card, then it is the SIM that is no good. If the SIM works fine in the other phone, it would be the phone that is the problem.

It says insert sim and sim card is already in it


take the sim out, use a plastic grocery bag and rub the sim card with the bag. Make sure you don't put your finger on the metal part.

How come when i put the sim in it just say insert sim


1. Ensure sim card is inserted the correct way (sounds asinine, but it happens more than you'd think)
2. Check contacts for build-up. A quick lick on your finger (not too much!) and rubbing of the exposed gold panels on the sim card should clean them sufficiently. Then toss the finger on the contacts on the phone.
3. Still not reading the SIM? If you have a friend on the same network as you, try putting his SIM card in and see if it reads it and turns on. This will pinpoint if it is a defect in the phone or your SIM card. If it still doesn't read your friend's card, I'm afraid your phone needs professional TLC. If it reads your friend's SIM card, return your SIM to your service provider (just walk into their store) and they will chop you up a new one right there on the spot.
Hope this helps!

Insert sim


Its possible that the sim card on your phone is not properly placed or the sim card that you own has some problems already.

Try to reinsert your sim card, this time make sure that it is properly placed. If the same happens, try to use a different sim card on your phone. If there are no problems, that means your sim card might be busted already. If the same happens with another sim card, then it is possible that the slot for the sim on your phone is defective or dirty. You may need to have it checked. :)

"Insert SIM card."


its the contact of the simcard to the leads. try putting a thin piece of paper over the sim so that there would be pressure on the sim. as always, think of the contact.
