Your phone may be locked to a different network. Is it an orange phone? If this is the problem then you'll need to get the phone unlocked to all netorks. If this is not the problem and it is an orange phone then phone orange and they should send you a new sim with the same number upon request.

Solving the nokia6120c insert sim problems


There are some possible solutions:-
1. Check that your sim card is in perfect condition by insering the same sim card in any other mobile phone... If the same message appears that means the problem is in your sim card
2. Check that your sim card's slot is in perfect condition by inserting any other sim in your mobile phone... Still if the same message occurs that means the problem is in your sim card's slot
3. Check that you are inserting your sim card correctly or not

Hi , i am in problem please help me. i have nokia


Hello

This error usually occurs when you attempt to use a SIM card from a network other than the network from which the phone originated (e.g. your Nokia mobile phone originated from Orange UK and displays the 'Sim Card Not Valid' error when you attempt to use a T-Mobile UK SIM card). The 'Sim Card Not Valid' error usually means the phone has been restricted for use on one specific network and you would need to unlock the phone before alternative network SIM cards can be used.

could You test the new SIM on another phone? Could be the housing of SIM damage on phone - hardware problem - Nokia Service.

in any case you need to find out which network and ask them for the unlock code.

Only the original network to which it is locked can provide this code.

My proble is i insert sim in mobile massage show please insert sim. my mobile model is m200 samsung


Hi, when a phone displays an insert sim message, it means that either the Sim card or the Sim tray where the sim card is inserted in the phone.

First, You can use the sim card on another phone to be sure that the sim card is still working properly. If the sim works with another phone, that means the sim tray where the sim card is being insert into the phone is bad and will need to be replaced.

You `can contact a skill personnel for help.

Have a nice day.

Have a samsung phone and it says insert SIM. What does that mean and where can I get one?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Insert SIM message means;
  • Your SIM card isn't present there in the phone, SIM is actually the module that enables a phone to connect itself on some Telecom Service. Like AT&T, Orange, T-Mobile...
  • The other reason if the SIM is in there and still you are having this issue, it means the Phone is locked to some specific network and you can't use any other SIM card except the one it is locked for.
  • If above both the possibilities are ruled out then it must be the SIM Jacket issue, the jacket is faulty and is not letting the phone to recognize the SIM, it needs service in this case.
I hope you will have a clear picture now.
Concerned, Nooh
