Two reasons why that would happen.

1. SIM card is dead (disconnected by provider)
2. Phone is blacklisted (reported lost or stolen)

Sorry but that is the fact.

SIM card registration failed


Hi,
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.

Regards

SIM card registration failed, whats wrong?


The first thing to try is put the SIM into another handset - if you get the same error message on that, the SIM is blocked. If it works in another phone, the most likely explanation is that the IMEI of your phone has been blocked by the network.

SIM CARD REGISTRATION failed, N70


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.

Sim card registration


No, your handset seems ok. Its related with your SIM card's registration. Have you tried it on some other phone? Try putting the SIM card on another phone. Most probably the validity of your SIM card has expired. Please check with your service provider for re-activation if that is possible. Please let us know how did it go...

Sim card reg failed in my 6630


confirm that your phone is not locked to a particular network carrier especially if you desire to change sim card operator.

if this were so, you will need to unlock your handset first before re-inserting your sim card into your handset.

third way out is to flash your phone.

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.

Sounds like a deactivated sim card or a barred handset. Ie, reported lost or stolen

If you place an active O2 sim into a blacklisted handset your phone will not show any signal strength
at all! If the handset is a Nokia then a
"SIM card registration failed" message
will also be displayed.
