    sos sim card rejected

    Advertisement



    i need help. my 8800 works great except for when i got to an area that gets no service. normal. the problem is that when i re-enter network coverage after several hours it always says "SOS sim card rejected". does the device not reconnect automatically when re-rentering coverage?
    If Death calls it is OK, I have Caller ID.

    Sometimes it has issues reconnecting (and this is true for any GSM phone when returning back to network). The easiest thing to do is to just turn the wireless off and then back on forcing it to reset the connection.

    Mine has done that as well, driving in an area that was what was known as "BFE" I did a battery pull and it was fine.

    I get this all the time and yes, it's very frustrating. I usually get it when switching towers, and "bumping" the phone around... such as when I sit my purse down too hard or something.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~it's extremely annoying! I sit in one spot most of the day and don't change towers or let my phone get knocked around. I still go into SOS mode once or twice a day! Is there maybe something wrong with my SiM card?
