Invalid SIM and Unregistered SIM are two different problems. Invalid SIM means the phone is locked to a certain company and you are trying to use a SIM card for another company. Unregistered SIM means the SIM card you are using is not active and you need to contact your service provider to get it activated. In order to unlock the phone so you can use anyone's SIM, you must contact the provider that the phone is locked to.

    Hmm,
    Well, in that case I would consider trying your SIM card in another device. If it works then there is a problem with the phone itself. If however it does not work in another phone then you will need to replace the SIM card.

Phone says sim card registration has failed


When the message sim card registration failed comes up it is usually as a result of one of 2 things the first being that the phone has not recognized the sim card due to an improper fixing or the sim card has become faulty. Simply try the sim on a different mobile device to determine if the sim card is still good.

open up the back of your phone, look at the slot where you put you sim card, try to elevate it just a little just to make sure the contact point touch the sim card, try to clean your sim card with pensil eraser and wipe it with clean clothe,then insert it and open it..

SIM CARD REGISTRATION failed, N70


Factory resetting the phone will do absolutely nothing with this problem

There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.

1, The sim card is turned off (is it Orange) if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.

2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.

3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.

I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message.
