Nokia 6300 "No SIM card inserted"


I have a Nokia 6300, it's already a few years old (no warranty!). I never had any problems with it, it's unlocked and worked fine until now.

Without me changing anything (I didn't drop it, didn't turn it off or even took the battery and SIM out) it suddenly doesn't see any registered SIM card. Instead it is telling me "No SIM card inserted".

I switched it off and on, didn't help. I took the SIM out, tried to clean the contacts, didn't help. I inserted my SIM card into a different phone, it worked fine there. To me it is obvious then that it must be the phone.

What can I do? As I said, I didn't even drop the phone! I do not understand how it suddenly doesn't work anymore :smileysad:

Do I have no other choice than getting a new phone?

Any help is appreciated!

Uh okay... I inserted someone elses SIM card which my phone accepted. Then I put my SIM back in, and guess what: it works!


So erm, I guess it's time for a new phone. Can't have it sometimes working and sometimes not working, depending on its mood.

If you really want to keep this phone..then try a replacement SIM card..
