FIrstly, make sure it is correct clicked into place.


Secondly, make sure you are using a standard SIM card, the N8 won't work properly with Micro-SIMs with or without adapters:


If you have such a SIM card, you migth need to ask your network to provide a normal one instead.

Re: N8 Insert SIM card

I reside in Mexico City and I recently acquired the N8.

I am having this issue and it's driving me crazy.

The phone loses contact with the sim chip, normal size, no adapters, and it has to be restarted once and once again until one has to wiggle it again in and out of the socket for it to make contact again.

I have two weeks with the phone, and this is beggining to be a big bother. Can't believe this is happening in this phone.

I have had the same problem. I currently use N8 and under Starhub Operator. When it happen for the first time,  I went to Starhub to have it replaced and it was fine. But it has happened again. I am going to see if I can clean the SIM card or i dont know...I really dont want to have it replaced again because the REAL problem is not being solved. Or identified yet.

Happens to me as well. Suddenly the SIM card stops working. Had to get a new one twice. Just started happening again. I'm using SimpleMobile. I don't think the F-Secure method works as i don't have it on my phone. Any other solutions??
