Four day old Lumina 920 went "black" micro sim is no good for old phone

My new Lumina 920 died tonight. I have been configuring it for four days, even synced the calander. I am on the old C6 phone @ a hot spot, no phone service, not happy. I need am adapter for my C6 to take a micro sim as a backup.

Try a Hard Reset - Press the Power+Volume+Camera keys until the phone vibrates Then release the power button but keep the volume and camera keys pressed for another 5-6 seconds.

Data loss without warning.

If the hard reset doesn't solve your problems, then you will need to take your phone to your local Nokia Care point for them to inspect. to locate your nearest Nokia Care point: http://nokia.com/support

Suggest that you read Page 13 of User Guide:http://nds1.nokia.com/phones/files/guides/Nokia_C6-00_UG_en.pdf

 

"Important: Do not use a mini-UICC

SIM card, also known as a micro-SIM card, a micro-SIM card with an adapter, or a SIM card that has a mini-UICC cutout (see figure) in this device. A micro SIM card is smaller than the standard SIM card. This device does not support the use of micro- SIM cards and use of incompatible SIM cards may damage the card or the device, and may corrupt data stored on the card"

Happy to have helped forum with a Support Ratio = 42.5

Some badly designed adapters can get stuck in the phone. The best adapter is the part of a normal SIM which remains when a micro-SIM has been cut out. Get an unused normal SIM and have somebody with a cutter cut a micro-SIM out of it. Most phone retail shops can do it for you. Then fit your micro-SIM inside (it will fit tightly) and use it on your C6. It won't know you are using an adapter, trust me.
