There's a program that can reprogram or clone an existing SIM card especially if the SIM card is not working anymore. This can be seen in various forums online. If you're just concerned about transferring all your contact/address book information, you can simply delete all the record of your SIM card and then transfer the new records from your phone to your SIM. One last thing to not is that if your SIM cannot be detected on all phones, then the SIM maybe broken anymore and any data inside it cannot be retrieved anymore since it's a chip issue which cannot be fixed.

INVALID SIM


This may be because of your damaged SIM. Try the following:
1. Check whether your SIM is rejected by just putting the same SIM in another phone. Also, check if your SIM is a valid GSM compatible SIM.
2. Check if that your phones SIM slot is fully operational.
3. Check if you have correctly inserted the SIM.

Hope this may help you. Happy New Year to you too.

Tip

SIM card Rejected ? orvSIM Card unaccepted?


The SIM card is the small card inside your phone that establishes the network connection. In almost all cases, your operator or service provider is the best source of assistance with SIM card problems.

Your phone may display a SIM card error message if:

  • The SIM card is out of alignment. If the phone has recently been dropped, bumped, or opened, the SIM card may need adjusting. Follow the SIM card installation instructions in your user guide.
  • The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code is entered incorrectly multiple times. This can inactivate the SIM card. If inactivation appears to be permanent, contact your operator or service provider for a new SIM card.
  • You have recently changed service providers. In this case, either your SIM card or your phone may be configured for your previous operator and may require reconfiguring. Please contact your current operator or service provider for assistance.
If none of the situations above apply and you continue to receive this error message, your SIM card may be damaged. Please contact your operator or service provider to have the SIM card tested and/or replaced.

I have Nokia 5230.I tried to give security code but its displayed the SIM is rejected.


Hi,
The possible reasons for SIM CRASH may be one of the following:
•The SIM card is out of alignment. If the phone has recently been dropped, bumped, or opened, the SIM card may need adjusting. Follow the SIM card installation instructions in your user guide.
•The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code is entered incorrectly multiple times. This can inactivate the SIM card. If inactivation appears to be permanent, contact your operator or service provider for a new SIM card.
•You have recently changed service providers. In this case, either your SIM card or your phone may be configured for your previous operator and may require reconfiguring. It may also be that your phone is configured so that it cannot be used with a SIM card from a different operator or service provider. Please contact your current operator or service provider for assistance.
If none of the situations above apply and you continue to receive this error message, your SIM card may be damaged. Please contact your operator or service provider.
Thanks and have a nice day.

I have a nokia 5800 xpressMusic. Made in Korea. Imei is 352012042341890. I am not able to use it in Bangladesh. When i insert SIM card it says "INVALID SIM CARD" Please give me a solution.


Either your sim card is faulty, or more likely your handset is network locked.
You will need to either purchase a new sim card (if sim is problem) or obtain the network unlock code for your phone.
