Question about Nokia 3200

2 Answers

Nokia 3200 turns on, asks for time but wont do anything.

When i turn my phone on without the sim card in, it works fine. But when i insert a sim card it shows the nokia logo for a unusually long time, then it asks for the time, and i cant press anything, it just freezes.

    hi I'm having the same problem that Rus94's having. I turn on my nokia 3200, it askes for my pin code then it starts up with the two hands and the music. It gets the the main page where it has my picture on it and it says in the right bottom corner 'contacts'. it also has full battery, but no reception and its not connecting onto optus. Then it freezes and goes dark!!! Very frustrating!!

    What do i do????

...and it's worth paying the value of the phone x 5000 taking a 3200 to a nokia store?! Considering they probably just have a "hold down this, this, and this" code I'm yet to find, buggered if I'm paying _any_ more than $5 for a fix for this.. and I suspect the repair place will charge just a _touch_ more.. >

I think you just need to try using Different sim card or else ,you needs to go the Genuine NOkia repairer and ask for software upgrade to the newest version.

My nokia 3200 restart when simcard inserted.but when simcard no inserted the phone no restart.just showing insert simcard


This is happening because when the Sim card is not inserted you cannot access the menu of the phone some nokia phones(including yours) are built that way.

Some nokia phones do not need a sim card for you to access the phone menu (e.g 5130,5230), while you can only view the demo of some nokia phones (e.g 1208, 1600) without a sim card
