    SIM Card Error

    Advertisement



    My Pearl does not seem to like my SIM Card. The SIM Card door does not seem to latch very well at all. Sometimes it slips open (even though its behind the battery) and I won't have service until I take my phone out of my pocket and realize what has happened. Other times, I'll barely drop my phone, or toss it on my bed and I get the SIM Card Error. Then I have to take off the skin, take off the battery case, take out the battery, reinsert and wait 3 min for the phone to load.

    Has anyone else had this problem with their Pearl? Is my door just defective? Would this be something that T-Mobile would cover under warranty?

    I searched the forum but didn't see any other complaints like this.

    Re: SIM Card Error

    Pearl's SIM holder seems to be one of the weakes points... I do not have card holder door at all.. looks like it works.. you may try to put folded piece of paper or second old SIM card on top of your SIM and cover it with battery..

    Does anybody know where can I get new SIM card holder door?

    Re: SIM Card Error

    I have the same problem with my pearl. I think its a flaw in the design, the SIM card space seems too big for the SIM. it should be covered by warranty. Didn't try to do warranty yet with mine cause its fine until I drop it, so my fix for this.........try not to drop it!!!
