1 Answer

Samsung wave isnt recognising SIM any more. It was working fine for about a month. I took the SIM out to get data from my old phone, now when I have out it back into the Samsung it is asking me to 'Inert SIM'. I have taken it out & restarted the phone but keep on getting this message.

First check that the SIM and if possible the phone's SIM electrical contacts are not greasy or dirty. But otherwise, the most likely cause is a corrupted SIM. You'll have to try another one from the same network (if your phone is carrier-locked). If you accidentally touch the SIM contacts it's very easy to send a chip-frying burst of static electricity into it. For similar reasons, SIMs should only ever be swapped with the phone turned off, but as almost all phones need the battery removed to do so this precaution is usually automatically applied.

If that doesn't work you can safely assume that your phone is faulty and will need to go to a repair shop (warranty repair?) as any further remedies need specialist equipment and skills.

HOW DO I COPY CONTACTS TO SIM FROM MY SAMSUNG WAVE S8500?


It's not a direct solution to your issue but you can try exporting your contacts from your Samsung Wave to your computer using KIES, and then transferring the contacts to your new phone (assuming this is your intention).

You may download KIES at Samsung's website ( http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/GT-S8500BAAXEU ).
