Nokia 500: Refuses to start up with SIM inserted

[ Edited ]

Please, my Nokia 500 starts up without Sim but refuses to start up with the Sim inserted. What could be the problem?

Probably a problem with the sim. Try another.

Re: Nokia 500: Refuses to start up with SIM inserted

If you start 500 without SIM it starts in "Offline" mode but if you switch off and re-insert SIM does it prompt you whether you wish to stay "Offline" or not and what happens if you decline so it should go "Online"?

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

Yes without sim, it starts in offline mode but with the sim inserted it prompt a message 2 choose between offline/online. If i choose the online mode, it starts up for about 30sec and trips off
