    Question 8900 - "Insert Sim Card" Error

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I just bought a new 8900 from rogers and unlocked it.
    I put in my sim and it worked for about 5 minutes and then the call got dropped and it said "Insert Sim Card" and the signal went to SOS. I did a hard restart and nothing happens. It stays the sim.

    I got a replacement sim and still the same problem. I have tried the phone with 5 other sims of other people and it works fine.

    I did a wipe clean and re-installed the software (.94) and still it says "Insert Sim Card".

    Somehow it seems to have locked my phone number out of the phone.

    Please help.. What can I do ? I am no longer in canada so can't claim a new phone under warranty. I believe the phone is fine since it works with other sims. Somewhere I have locked my phone number sim out of the phone.

    Please help !!

    Sounds like you may have a faulty or corrupt SIM. Are the contacts dirty??

    Or did your carrier cut you off?

    I had this happen twice last year. Both times the SIM card needed to be replaced. Sometimes swapping the SIM card back and forth between phones somehow confuses the card so it starts doing this for an unknown reason. The first SIM card that did this was a SIM I'd had for over 2 years.
