    same problem! i think it is with all phones, i have THREE of these and it happens to ALL three, it vibrates, and then kind of restarts itselt (when the phone is switched on the red light next to the camera will come on, and the same happens when it freezes) then when it comes back to the front screen, it says Inactive SIM. i need to take the battery out, take the sim out, then put it all back in again. i have phoned vodafone, they told me to try and take it to a vodafone store, but i doubt they will do much. i have updated the firmware, and this does not solve the problem.

My w890i phones keeps freezing and then switches off sometimes it comes on again but has a message inactive sim, I replaced the sim but same problem very regular ocurrence. I have taken out sim leaft...

I had the same issue with my W890i, I sent it off to Sony for fixing - but the issue still remained... I fixed the problem by using the Sony Ericssion PC suite, plug in the phone and then run the "update" wizard. then ran the Repaire/Reset to factory settings.

This cleared the problem straight away - ALTHOUGH be aware that this will wipe your phone clean. Any numbers stored on the phone will be deleted.

I had the exact same problem. Solution is to update phone via sony ericsson support site. Ensure you have backed up your phone first as alll numbers and ms will be lost. I have had no problems since the update 10 days ago
