That means that phone is not unlocked. You might want to contact that seller and ask for a refund if he claims it is unlocked. hope this helps

Simcard registration failed


you might have not provided a proper ID proof for your sim card during purchase. So the network provider will disconnect your connection and your mobile phone will show as SIM CARD REGISTRATION FAILED.
buy a new SIM card with a valid proof

SIM REGISTRATION FAILURE


i think the sim card might have passed the sim validity period ....

sim validity period:
this is the period after your currency & validity expires there will be a a sim validity period for 60 or 90 days from the network provider after that your sim card is of no use ..
to activate that again you must contact the network provider s shoppe if that number is not went out in to the rotation then you can get activated with the same number from them ...
if it is out for rotation you cant ...

.....

there is one more instance here

if you have purchased the new sim card from some dealer or from the network provider s shoppe then it might have not yet got activated ... so you must contact that dealer and as him to activate that .. only dealer has the right to activate that ...
otherwise just visit to the network provider s shoppe & tell them this details they will assist you ...

any doubts reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye ...

Insert simcard nokia 7200


hi the only one thing you can try without replacing the sim card reader is do you know when you put the simcard in if you push on the simcard with your finger so your pushing it down onto the contacts is fold up some paper so that it put pressure onto the simcard when you put the battery on as alot of times the contacts dont touch the sim card properly so putting some folded paper on top of sim card pushes it down onto the contacts properly.
This solves the problem in most cases but it can be difficult to get right as if the paper isnt thick enough then it might not push it down hard enough to make contact.
If after doing this it still dont work then this either means the sim cards no good but you could try it in another phone or it could be that the sim card reader is not connecting with the board properly and would need replacing.
Make sure you check the contacts are clean on the sim card and the sim card reader to make sure this isnt problem.
If you have not tried the sim card in a different phone then it could be the sim card is no good.
Did this sim work in the phone before just in case the phone dont accept that network as you can get this message if this is the case.

Let me know how you get on and if you need further assistance ok

Hi if it says that then the chances are that the simcard is blocked or not accepted on that phone so either try another sim card in the phone and also do you know what network the phone is on cus if you put different netwrok in it wont recognise the simcard
