What can i do if the phone is saying invalidy sim card


If your Nokia X6 16 GB Displays invalid sim card while inserting other Network GSM sim card like MTN ?
It is locked to network.You need to specify which country and network it is locked now.I have bought an Nokia X6 16GB in INDIA but it was locked to Australia Vodafone network .I have unlocked it and now using it in USA AT&T network sim card.So you can unlock your Nokia X6 16GB from current network lock using the unlock code from the site Onlinegsmunlock.com after unlock it use with MTN network sim card or any GSM pay as you go sim card it will not display invalid sim card message.

I want to configure my htc for gprs for internet browsing mtn nigeria


Hi,

In Nigeria, the gprssetting for internet browsing will be sent to you shortly after inserting your simcard in your phone.

But, if the setting was not send to you, call mtn customer care on 180. Or you go to any of MTN office in Nigeria and the setting will be given to you on your phone.

Regards.

I just got a verizon branded blackberry storm 9530 but want to use etisalat nigeria as my carrier.I have unlocked the phone.etisalat nigeria says the BIS as bin sent to my sim.yet I can't browse,send and...


Etisalat Nigeria do not work with certain branded Balckberry devices. E.g the Tour 9630.The better option you've got is to switch your network or your telecom operator. MTN & glo work with branded devices. Let me know if you have a better solution because I also had the same problem

My phone showing insert sim please assist how to solve this problem


this could be a problem with your sim card. i would try a different sim card in the phone (like a friends) to see if it accepts that sim if it does, its your sim and most carriers will replace it for free. if that doesnt work it could be how its being placed in the phone or the phone its self.

You need to call your service provider and give them the sim card serial number that way the sim card can be activated.

Problem with puk number


You need to call MTN Nigeria to unlock the PUK, or simply use a different sim card.

UK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.

Depending on the SIM card you put in choose the correct network (Vodacom SIM card would choose Vodacom) That fixed my problem hope it fixes yours bye!
