SIM Error

one of my n900's has been getting a no sim error lately.  this started last week and since then, we have:

 

-replaced the sim card with a new one

-reflashed the firmware (to the pr1.3)

 

but still haveing the same issue even after a full flash (not OTA)

 

 

anyone had this issue and resolved it?  or do you think it needs to be sent in?

Re: SIM Error

i've seen this problem crop up a few times but never seen a fix, one guy said he cleaned the contact area and that solved it, he didn't say what with but i'd suggest a spirit based product, or even vodka
if you're gonna try it, dip a cotton bud in it and use that

Re: SIM Error

i just called nokia,  they gave me a free 2day air ups label to send it in.

 

 

i have already dropped it off.   that unit was dropped and had a couple scratches on the bezel anywy.   maybe theyll send a newer one back.  :smileyhappy:

Re: SIM Error

go to your service provider and have them supply you with a replacement SIM and see if that works. i had to do that for my n97. ended up being that the guys at the nokia care center bricked my n97, so i ended up getting that replaced too.
