    Yes, I know that the sim card has nothing to do with charging. My
    problem is that my phone is not charging and I am not eligible for
    upgrade to buy a new phone. And I can't afford to spend hundreds of
    dollars on a new phone, so my question is: CAN I PUT A POST
    PAID SIM CARD (MY CURRENT SIM CARD) IN A PREPAID CELL PHONE AND HAVE
    THE PHONE WORK CORRECTLY?

Charging problem is not cause by any s.i.m cards..

it is a phone fault..

even if you put other prepaid sim in you charging faulty phone it will still be faulty..

I can't use my cell phone, it just write "insert sim", how can i use it?


Without a sim card, you phone will not work. You need to check to see if you have one, and if not you can get one from the phone service provider. They can also test the sim to insure it works.

My iemi number has been blacklisted


In my experience, with AT&T and TMobile, (sim Card) carriers, you can put another sim card in your device, and it will work.
However, when you make a claim via insurance for a "Lost or Stolen" phone, they lock the device itself to prevent thiefs from accessing all your vital accounts Ex: Facebook, Bank, Etc

My phone is lock


I had the same problem last year, I was messing around with the security part of my phone and I dialed in the wrong code so many times that my SIM card locked up on me and I couldn't call or text anyone, except to only 911. that is what is happening to you.
Since your SIM card is locked since you punched in the wrong PUK code, call your cell phone customer service, explain the situation, and what they did with me is they sent out a new SIM card in the mail to me. They would probably do the same thing to you as well. and when you get your new SIM card you would have to call your cell phone company customer service and have the SIM card activated.
Next time don't mess around with the security part of your phone and don't dial in any wrong codes that you don't know of. I learned my lesson when it happened to me. I went with a prepaid cell phone company and they said that if I did it again that they wouldn't give me another SIM card and I would have to purchase a new phone.
good luck :-)

How do you remove your sim card from the 6700 slide to replace with new?


I don't have this particular phone, but generally the sim card in under the battery. Before you start, make sure you have all your contacts and stuff stored on the phone, not the sim, or it all goes bye-bye when you change the sim. Snap off the back of the phone. Don't pry the battery out. Usually you have to look for 2 tiny little "latches" that hold it in. Sometimes there is a lever that you push to release the battery. Then you can see the sim card. Sometimes you release a little metal clip that holds it down. On other phones, you just slide the card out from under the metal holder. Pay attention to which way the card is turned, and don't put the new one in upside down. Then reassemble the phone.

Hi, I just purchased my phone last November and the sim card is already bad, so it says. When I power up the phone now it says insert sim card. I have never removed it before and am not abusive with the...


you might try switching the sim cards between the phones, see if that helps at all. you can also do a hard reset, remove the battery, then press the reset button for about 5 sec. turn it back on and see if that is the problem. they should not be charging you for replacement sim cards that have gone bad. insurance covers the phone, the card belongs to sprint and if bad, they replace it.

Nokia 2310 suddenly stopped sending text message


If the SIM works fine in other phones, there is a phone issue. See if you're eligible for a warranty replacement (eligible if purchased new from AT&T within the last year or if purchased refurbished from AT&T within the last 90 days). If ineligible and you have insurance, use it... there will be a $50 deductible applied to your next bill. If ineligible and you haven't got insurance, get a replacement through somewhere like ebay or craigslist, upgrade (never EVER use wirefly or amazon, trust me) through AT&T preferably, or purchase a gophone (AT&T prepaid) from walmart, walgreens, wherever (If you go to RadioShack, they'll do everything for you). You just put your SIM in it and it will have your phone number and contract information... you don't have to sign up for prepaid service.

3 sim card


First you should get the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) from the box your phone came in. Give it to network 3. That will stop anyone else using it.
Then buy another phone with or without network lock.
The network 3 contract is still binding, whether you use them or not you have to pay them the minimum fee until the end of the contract.
Network 3 will lock it to their network, to make it work.
The other way is to have two phones.
