SOURCE: Nokia 6230 insert sim error

Insert sim error could be a problem with the sim card contacts, check if the sim card is locked properly and connections are all clean.

SOURCE: Tells me to insert smartchip when its already inserted

It did that for me too. But when I pushed it down gently and inserted it in, it worked for me.

This happened to me too. A temporary fix is turn off your phone and put it in front of a really cold air conditioner for about ten minutes. Then turn it on but make sure you keep it in front of the ac to keep it working. What happened is your sim card reader has a thermal problem so you will need to take it in unless you want to spend all your time in front of the ac (which will get expensive...)

SOURCE: WHY DOES MY PHONE SAYS INSERT SIM

try taking SIM and battery out placing it back in an powering on.

If you try this and it still does not work you may need a new SIM card. Take it to a local dealer they should have a new SIM they will put your number on it and you will be back in business.

If the new SIM doesn't not work you will now know it is your Phone, which means time for a new one.

good luck

Heyi have a sony ericsson W995 mobile it has been working fine all day but now it suddenly says insert correct sim card i dont know why its happened.


hi ive had exactly the same problem as you and when i took my phone back to 02 they said it was water damaged, i have since sent it off for a repair with another private company and they have said they are 95% sure its a software fault due to the way my screen was turning black and then saying insert sim, but i shall let you know when i get it back if it has fixed it or it could be something like the sim card reader but please dont be fobbed off saying its water damage they shall just drop a bit off water on the water tab and say its beyond economical repair

Insert sim


Is your sim card in the phone? Make sure it is inserted in there correctly and if it is and it still gives you that message the phone has a bad Sim card reader and although your sim is in the phone it is not reading it.

Hi, I just purchased my phone last November and the sim card is already bad, so it says. When I power up the phone now it says insert sim card. I have never removed it before and am not abusive with the...


you might try switching the sim cards between the phones, see if that helps at all. you can also do a hard reset, remove the battery, then press the reset button for about 5 sec. turn it back on and see if that is the problem. they should not be charging you for replacement sim cards that have gone bad. insurance covers the phone, the card belongs to sprint and if bad, they replace it.

I have just received my new i phone and cant get the sim card inserted although i have followed instructions do you have to press down really hard to insert sim card and holder i done want to break...


NO!

dont do it hard!

if your sim card cannot be inserted, it might be a problem inside the si card tray.

please try looking inside with a good light, and try to find any obstacles that might be inside the sim connector.

but you should never try to press hard on the sim connector, doing so can surely harm you sim connector and you will not be able to use your phone.

a broken sim connector is NOT in warranty coverage.

I290 is saying insert sim when inserted. my sim card works in other phones and it says the same thing when another sim is inserted


Obviously your sim card reader is bad or the metal clasp that holds your sim card firmly against the reader is warped. This would prevent the phone from reading your sim

Insert Smartchip


You have to insert the smart card all the way in on these phones. You can use a pen cap or something to push it all the way in there until it goes all the way in and click and stays there. Then it will not say " insert smart chip" anymore.
