If the same problem occurs with multiple handsets housing the same SIM then yes, the chances are that it's the SIM that's faulty, provided all the other handsets can use that SIM anyway (ie. they're not SIM-locked or the network they're locked to is the one that provided the SIM).

Re: Sim card registration failed.

I've had it in my old nokia 8600, towards the last few months it started saying sim card registration failed or showing no signal. i tried the sim card in a motorola phone, same message, these phones all have the same netwrok (orange). other netwrok sim cards work in my phone and the other phones, just to check to see if the phone was at fault.

Re: Sim card registration failed.

Hi,

 

Either the sim card is damaged or your mobile service provider has blocked or terminated the service for you. Call your service provider and first check if all is OK from their end.

 

If all is fine, then you need to have your sim replaced.

Remove the SIM, Clean the contacts and put it again.. If you get the same message.. get the SIM replaced...
