Question about Cell Phones

Open Question

I just bought a pre-activated orange sim card from tesco. But, when i put it into my mobile, (and I have tried several of my old ones I used to use, Sony Ericson, and two older nokia models, including my current mobile, nokia n97 mini - which none of them are service mobiles) it says 'inactive sim' where it should have the service name. i want to use the camel package but when i try to call the number for that it says 'unavailabe' . I cant top up either if it is inactive, what should I do? thanks.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
goodluck!

SOURCE: inactive sim

all the phones have security on them to prevent them being used after a contract insurance claim is paid out and in the event of being stolen.

basically you all have glorified paperweights m'kay

Your unlock code for Nokia 1208 for the network T mobile,here is the code
#pw+2846475677 +1#
How to use: Remove SIM card and turn phone on. Enter code in to main screen. To get the p push your * key 3 times, the w is the * pushed 4 times. Dont forget to remove SIM card, when entering codes! After entering unlock code phone will display: SIM restriction off - when lock has been successfully removed; Code error - when entered unlock code is wrong; Cant undo restriction - when you have tried to enter wrong codes too many times. You have only 5 tries to enter proper unlock codes! After that your phone can be unlocked only via cable, unlock codes wont work anymore!

I have just found my mobile phone LGCE0168 after losing it 6 months ago. How can I restart the Tesco PAYG sim card


I am wondering if you have tried another sim card in your newly found phone?

In theory there should be no problems just put your sim back in and make calls.

I am wondering If Tesco have changed service provider in the last 6 months? If they have it could explain your problem.
Asda mobile changed provider about a year ago from Vodafone to EE and my phone stopped working because it wasn't an unlocked phone. As it turned out I had to replace my phone for one that was unlocked because it wasn't worth the expense and trouble of having the old one unlocked. The old one still works fine on Vodafone and O2.

Just a thought. Another thought is perhaps it developed a fault while it was lost or maybe someone has been fiddling with it in that time.

There are lots of aftermarket phone shops around with specialists to give advice. The Tesco helpline might be able to help.

Good luck!

No service,pulling my hair out! Any ideas?


Just in case it isn't unlocked, you could use the first unlock link.
They do mention after inserting non-accepted SIM, being asked for code - are you getting this?

2nd may provide you a guide on how to connect - I don't have a phone to try with so no idea if it will help or not so I truly hope it does.

You may want to check out more of the links but these 2 appeared the most promising of a Google search off 'unlocked htc one v no service'.

I changed sim card, now they both display ''Insert SIM''


try taking out both cards and popping the battery on the phone.

Wait a few minutes and then turn the phone on with no card in it.

Turn it back off when it says no card found and insert the newer card and power it back up.

It seemed to keep a memory of the blank card.

Cannot import contact from sim card to iphone 3G


Turn off the iPhone before inserting the sim, insert sim, turn on, import contacts. If you put the sim in the phone without restarting it for some reason it doesn't get all the contacts sometimes.
