Hi,
How to correct sim card error / insert sim card

Procedure to follow


Step 1: Check the sim tray or sim seater to see if it it broken, if it is, replace it
Step 2: If the sim seater/tray is not broken, clean the entire terminal.
Step 3: If the sim seater/tray is not directly on the board, trace the broken led and solder it, or you replace the broken led with another sim tray.
Step 4: If it is still not working, change the battery and put a new battery, because a virus infected battery will always give such problem.
Step 5: Finally, if the problem still persist, then check the sim card and replace with another sim card if the former is bad because a bad sim card will always display such message as insert sim card or sim card error.

Take care

Do the SIM card and phone come from the same company, or are you using another providers SIM card on your phone?

Most phones in the US are locked so you can only use the provider that sold it to you. You may be able to request the unlock code if your contract has expired. Ohterwise you're stuck with the same phone company that sold you the phone.

I inserted sim, then mobile shows insert sim card why


Hi,
Please check the SIM card if it is correctly inserted or if you put in the SIM card the wrong way. But if you put in the SIM card correctly, you need to check your mobile phone if it is open to the network of the SIM card. If your mobile phone is unlock for all networks available in your country there is a problem on the SIM card. Please contact the network provider.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!

This will check if you phone is working correctly.
Turn phone off and install sim card.

I update my w880i software.now asking for "insert correct sim card"please Help me ,how con i solve it?


Hello Sir,
  • Error messageInsert SIM

Your phone has no contact with your SIM card. We recommend that you:
· Clean the connectors on the SIM card with a soft brush, cloth or q-tip moistened with any type of unflavoured, colourless alcohol.
· Check whether the card is damaged or worn in any way.
If your SIM card is damaged or does not work properly after cleaning, please contact your operator to obtain a new SIM card.
  • Error message Insert Correct SIM

Your phone is probably SIM-locked to a specific operator's SIM card. This is usually the case when you buy the phone from an operator. SIM- locked phones may be unlocked – contact your operator for more information.
I think that your W880i was unlocked by a patch before updating, and now, it's relocked because of the patch will disappear when you install new firmware.

My phone says "INSERT CORRECT SIM CARD" when i turn on


This may sound simplistic ... insert the correct SIM card.

Did you receive same with the phone? are you trying to use one from another phone? is one required at all? who is your carrier? What did they recommend to resolve?

Try this, since it seems you have a sim probably from another phone, there is that possibility that the formatting is not compatable with your new phone. Get a SIM to USB adapter. Plug it in to your computer USB. Copy the data from your SIM to your computer. Clear (format) the SIM using your computer. Put the clean SIM back into your phone - see what happens.

Good luck, I hope something here works for you

Need unlock code for sony ericsson z550a for a tmobile SIM


Hi, If you get error message as PIN blocked. Unlock?" You have entered the wrong PIN code too many times. You need to unlock your phone using the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) code. Your PUK code is provided by your network operator. If you get error message as Insert correct SIM" You have inserted a SIM card that is not supported. Insert correct SIM card, or contact your Service Provider for a SIM unlock code. If you get error message as Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone is locked and you need to unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it. I Hope it helped you. Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

No sim card inserted?


no sim card error is not virtual error from service providers, its due to your phone hardware problem. if your sim was not working due to service provider it will show your card registration failed. but you are getting sim card not inserted means your sim card contacts are not touching the phone sim contacts. try to refix your sim card properly. then try to reboot your phone.

You have most likely already checked this, but just in case.....make sure the sim card is full inserted, and inserted in the correct position. (There should be a diagram showing which way to insert the card.
