I assume you did not purchase the phone from a eputable source. The inactive sim message appears in this way when a person reports a sony ericsson phone lost or stolen. The IMEI number (unique to every handset) is used to disable functions of the sim reader.

    The phone is not "locked", its "blocked". Network providers lock phones to to prevent use with other networks. Any guy with a laptop can unlock a phone. Very different when blocked. I'm sorry for the bad news but every network provider will have a block on the IMEI number. The phone transmits a signature which is blacklisted. If there is a way to get around that, I dont know it. wish i could be of more help.

Inactive usim


The same thing happedned to my one. I switched the phone off then on and it worked. If it still doesn't work it is probably not the right simcard. Also the dude at the shop when i bought it put the sim in 4 me. Their was a sim in the box for the mobile.
