SIM card not detected on nokia N8 "offline mode"

Hi everybody


I've just bought a nokia n8 but I can't put in it my sim card or my father's. It won't read it and will only display a message that reads "Offline" (hors connexion in french). I can't access my contacts. I've always had nokia phones so I don't understand why this one suddenly won't work.


Thanks for your help !

If the sim card is old, often times it wont work on newer phones (of whatever brand).There are certain differences with the sim cards today compared to older ones.
