    Question sim card error?

    Advertisement



    ok guys...had my bb pearl for about a week and earlier tonight it says "Sim Card Error" where my bars should be. I have Cingular and i decided to do the ol' "battery pull" and to my suprise, it worked. Well, about 3.4 minutes later, it says "Sim card error" again. Pulled the battery and all was well. Problem is, it wont stop doing it. When i pull the battery out, it seems fine, but it goes back to not working about 2-5 minutes later....HELP?!?!??!!

    Sounds like it might be a case of infant mortality with the SIM card, but make sure it isn't loose in the Phone. Make sure the keeper is well latched.

    hope this helps

    I had the same problem today. I called Cingular and they had me remove the battery and take out the SIM card. Thats when I found the SIM card cover was not latched. Problem solved.

    I was having the same issue and also just removed my SIM, put it back in, and haven't see the error since. My cover was latched but the SIM must not have been seated correctly.
