    Sos

    Advertisement



    I woke up this morning about 8 and looked at my phone and it said SOS in red in the upper right hand corner then "SIM card rejected" where the "T-Mobile" normally is..

    I have tried to battery pulls on top of battery pulls and have taken off the sim card several times also, and its still not working. I tried turning of the connection and still nothing.

    I have only had this phone for 3 weeks and i've never dropped it either.

    Any help, I have gone the whole day without my phone.

    Sounds like either you have a bad sim card or maybe the phone is not reading the simcard correctly, is there any way for you to try it on a nother phone? if so try that and will see if its a phone issue or the simcard issue. or have you tried calling your carier maybe they sometimes can program sim cards for you. But I am thinking it maybe your only phone?

    I just tried it in my 8100 and its still saying the same thing..
    So i'm guessing it the sim card.

    yeah most likely it might be damage call your service provider and maybe they can send you a new one sometimes it may cost depending on who your carrier is, good luck.

    I am replacing my SIM card (that I just got in January 2008) today also. Having the same problems for almost 1 week.

    Whoo it works I got my new card..

    I went in there and I was trying to start a conversation with the rep that was helping me because I was tired of watching him whipping off his sweat then foundling with my phone. So I asked do the sim cards usually go bad and he replied by said no not at all... I turned my head like I was flipping my hair and rolled my eyes.

    He 1st takes out the battery and card then puts it back in like I didn't try the 50 times before I cam here .. Then he said I guess we will have to replace your sim card.. again with the rolling of my eyes.

    After he was done with it and it woked I said I guess they do go bad huh... then walked out.

    It means that another network is available for use but only for emergency (SOS) calls.
