I found a N70 about a year and a half ago in our company parking lot. I advertised on our intranet and on the noticeboards for the owner to fetch it from me. i decided to use it myself today...but it has obviously been blacklisted or blocked by the service provider here in South africa. I looked at the other solutions offered, but am not able to access any security code screen. is there anyway to overide the blacklisting of the imei no?

There are several reasons that can cause this problem.
Sim card registration failed means it has been locked out by the service provider. Did you buy the phone NEW? If so take it back they will exchange it.If you bought it used, it has been reported lost or stolen before they sold it to you. It is also possible that the "registration failed" message could be caused by a faulty SIM card not being correctly read by the phone.
Check if that SIM works in another phone (either an unlocked phone, or one that is on the same network), and also try another SIM in your phone - this would tell you whether the SIM or the phone is at fault in your case. A faulty SIM is an issue for your operator, a faulty phone would have to be repaired at a service point. In countries like India, you need to register your SIM card. The cell phone company blocks the SIM if they don't receive the application within few weeks of activating the phone. Please check if this is case. Take out the SIM and test it with a different phone, if the phone fails to read the SIM, get the SIM replaced. Few days ago this worked for a friend with a brand new Nokia handset here in Lagos, Nigeria.
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.
(First: copy all contacts from the phone to SIM card)
1.Switch off the phone.
2. Press and hold the following three buttons:
Green(call answer) button, (*) button, (3) button.
3.Now press the switch on button.
4.Then the message 'Formatting" appears on the screen release all buttons. I hope this can assist you in the fix .
The sim card holder is too loose on a lot of new Nokia phones. Place some folded paper (3,4,5,6 times) between the sim card and the sim card holder. It should fix it. I have an E65 and had this problems for two days after buying it. Since I fixed it 3 months ago, never had this problem again.
Hope it works for you too.
SIM Card Registration failed, means your SIM card serial number does not exist in your SIM provider's Server.
Generally when a SIM not used for a long period (About 6 months or any fix duration by SIM provider), the company remove that SIM card serial number from server.
In some cases if your SIM is new then it might not be activated by company, so you can ask regarding this the customer care of your SIM provoider.
