If the display says "Insert SIM" it means that the phone has no contact with your subscription card (SIM card) in the phone. We recommend that you remove the battery and the SIM card, and clean the connectors on the SIM card and the phone with a soft brush, cloth or q-tip moistened with any type of unflavoured colourless alcohol.
At the same time check whether the card is damaged or worn in any way; if so its connector may not align with the phone connector. Please contact your operator / carrier to obtain a new SIM card. function flashView(file,alt){ var lcParam = 'et'; var ccParam = 'ee'; var flashVar = 'ciptexturl=/cws/support/phones/textandanimationdetail?cc=ee&lc=et?name='; if(ccParam == '' || lcParam == ''){ flashVar = 'ciptexturl=/cws/support/phones/textandanimationdetail?cc=ee&lc=et&name='; } var file_ext= file.substring(file.lastIndexOf('.'), file.length); var HTML = ''; flashVar = flashVar.replace(/&/g, "!"); if(file_ext.indexOf('swf') > 0){ HTML += ''; HTML += ' '; HTML += ' '; HTML += ' '; HTML += ''; HTML += ''; } else { HTML += 'I have a sony erricsson - ' + file + ''; } document.getElementById('tsflash').innerHTML = HTML; }

Hi, I have a sony ericson w900i, i press the on button and the phone just comes up with a white screen and whatever i do apart from turn it off the screen remains the same, just white? please help...


hi
the problem relates to either the information not getting to the screen usually due to the phone getting dropped or banged around as sometimes the screen conection comes lose and stops the info getting to the screen the other problem could be that the screen itself has a problem and replacing it would solve both of these problems.
Their is nothing you can do or press to solve this problem its a case of replacing the screen witch isnt easy to do as youll need special tools and also get the parts can be a problem

My j20i sony ericsson cannot read my sim card..how can I overcome this problem??


Hi,
Is there any error messages appear when you insert the SIM card?.
  • Try to clean the metal surface of Sim card with a piece of clean cloth and try it again
  • Try to insert the Sim card using different phone ( If it works. The problem is the phone)
If you can use the simcard using different phone then the sony erickson you are using is locked up to a particular network. so all you have to do is to call your service provider hotline to request for unlocking of the phone.
Thank you for using fixya

I need a puk code please urgently


Hi,
Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This generic because I don't know your carrier. I've used ATT as an example.
Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them
When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.
Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.
Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.
Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorala, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.
A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:
  • logging in to your myWireless Account online
  • using their Technical Support Chat
  • calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500
To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:
  • Log in to your myWireless Account.
  • Select My Services under My Account.
  • From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
  • Select Unblock SIM Card.
  • The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.
Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code. Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator." There are three other ways to unlock a phone:
  • The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
  • You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
  • Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Problems sending or receiving SMS may be caused by no or incorrect SMS settings. To set up your phone to use SMS, you need a message centre number, which is provided by your network operator. This is often set up automatically when inserting a new SIM card to a phone. Whiteout the message centre number, you are not able to send or receive SMS.

To edit the service centre number:

  1. Select Menu > Settings > Connectivity >Message settings.
  2. Select Text message.
  3. Highlight Service centre and select Edit.
  4. Highlight a service centre number and selectOptions > Edit > Continue.
  5. Enter the service centre number and selectSave > Yes.
  6. Highlight the service centre number and selectSelect to use the defined service centre number.

To add a service centre number provided by your network operator:

  1. Select Menu > Settings > Connectivity >Message settings.
  2. Select Text message.
  3. Highlight Service centre and select Edit.
  4. Select Add to add a new service centre number.
  5. Enter the service centre number and selectSave.
  6. Highlight the service centre number and selectSelect to use the defined service centre number.
This should help you.
any further questions feel free to ask.
Thanks.

Sim card rejected


Try inserting the sim card in another phone. If it still doesn't work, the problem could really be with the sim card. Go to your service provider, and request for your sim card number transfered to another sim card. That is if you wanna keep the same number. You could request for another sim card if you'd like. Call your service provider.
