My sim card


sounds like the phone is either still wet or the water shorted out the motherboard and you have damaged the phone. you could try a hard reset back to factory defaults or you might need a new motherboard. Insurance might cover this but manufacturer warranties rarely do, in which case try ebay for spares or a new phone might be cheaper.

Phone got wet and I'm sure its a total loss. It seems to power up fine and everything looks good but it will not read the SIM card and keeps showing emergency on the home screen? Is there anything I...


Hi. Immediately take the battery out of the phone. You need to take it apart completely. Down to the keypad. U need to then spray acetone on the entire circuit board.
Then you blow-dry with a hair dryer until it is dried. Put the phone back together. You should have a now working phone
Problem is, you already booted up the phone without these steps. The phone can be damaged already. But its worth a try.

Unlocking my sony ericsson w580i


IF U ARE USING THE SAME CARRIER AS BEFORE (ATT FOR EXAMPLE) IT WONT NEED UNLOCKED. IF U WERE GIVEN A NEW SIM CARD FROM UR CARRIER WHEN THE NEW PHONE WAS BOUGHT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE SIM CARD. THE CARRIER ATTACHES THE SIM CARD NUMBER TO UR ACCOUNT. YOUR OLD ONE CAN BE USED ONLY TO ACCESS YOUR CONTACTS, BUT NOT TO MAKE CALLS.YOU CAN HOWEVER PUT THE OLD SIM CARD IN UR NEW PHONE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF TRANSFERRING UR CONTACTS, THEN REPLACE YOUR NEW SIM CARD INTO UR NEW PHONE

W580i wont send or receive txtx or calls


Sounds like it is locked. Try your SIM card in the phone. If it still says the same thing, take it in to get unlocked. $25-50 to get it done.

You can also search the net for information on how to do this. Most places will charge for the software/info.

Razor phone not reading sim card


Have you tried a different SIM to make sure that isn't the problem? I'd say 3 out of 4 times when the phone gets wet the other stuff works after it dries, but people constantly have problems with reading the SIM afterwards. Hopefully swapping the SIM card out will help, otherwise your only option is to have a repair shop fix it up for you.
