Why do I receive SIM error ?

Your SIM card is not properly seated, or not communicating with your carrier. First simply try and power cycle your phone. Turn it off and then leave it off for one minute. Then power it back on. If that does not solve your problem, power it back off and then make sure that your SIM card is properly seated inside your phone. Here's a YouTube video on inserting your SIM card:

If that still doesn't work, then you will need to contact your carrier as either the SIM card is defective, not active with your account, or there is something else going on with your account.

When i put a sim card an error report reading"illegal use will be powered off soon" is displayed but when i remove the sim card the phone is ok what could be the problem?

Your phone is sim-locked and needs to be unlocked. This can often be done cheaply in local phone shops, or online.

Sim card error


If your phone gives you the sim card error, it means either the sim is not properly inserted, or the phone cannot read the sim card. Remove the sim and reinsert it back in the phone to see if it will work.

Try to use the sim in another phone, if it works, then it means your phone has been restricted to some certain sim cards and if it does not work on another phone, then it means the sim card is bad and the solution is for you to get a sim swap.

If the sim works on another phone, then you have to flash the phone with the appropriate software and cable in order for it to be able to work with any sim card.

Take care and good luck

Where is the sim card slot located?

The slot that holds your SIM card is most likely behind your cell phone's battery. If you get a SIM card error on your phone, you should turn off your phone and reinsert your SIM card.

My reliance GSM sim card is not working in NOKIA 7230. It is showing the error 44'H,ME Error and its registration is failed in the hand set. This sim is working in other handsets and other sim cards are...

All sim cards are not alike. The card that is giving you the error is not compatible with your phone. Get a new sim card from your cell service provider.

I have a problem with my lg kg270, insert sim

this error message means that your cell phone cannot read or detect the SIM card. Either the phone is faulty or the SIM card is faulty. You need to take the phone and SIM card to your phone service provider to check your phone and SIM card.
