    After Turning Back on Phone Won't Load SIM

    Advertisement



    So when I turn my 8100 off and then back on again, it says "Insert SIM Card." But if I turn it off, take out the battery and turn it back on, it's fine. Couple things to note, I've had my SIM card since 2000 and never had a problem with it, including just a week ago on another phone.

    Anyone else experience this? And thanks in advance for the help, I'm really learning a lot already from this forum!

    Not experiencing this on my phone but maybe you could try and make sure that the SIM card is placed in there all the way in the top of the SIM holder. To clarify, if you look when your SIM is in you might see that there is a small gap between the SIM and the little "wall" (meaning the lip where you place the SIM inside). If you push the SIM to be flush against the lip, then it might fix your problem.

    Hope this helps,

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Just make sure its seated properly. When I first got my pearl my card wasn't seated and locked in properly. Gentle pressure to lock the mechanism. It took a bit of force to lock it for mine.

    i think its your SIM card itself...you said you'd had it since 2000...
    what other piece of small electronic gear do you have that has lasted
    that long? I have been using my current SIM card for about three years
    and i think its on its way out.
    I would buy a new SIM just to be sure

    I agree with j llama. I'd just bring it to your service provider and have them give you a new one. I had a SIM card that was a couple years old and they, after learning that fact, just threw me a new one and all was solved. Try it and see if it works.

    Let us know how it went.
