i have a nokia 5800 xpress specifically model number 5800d-1 , TYPE Rm356 music phone, absolutely love it except a few weeks ago it started giving me an error that states "insert sim card".
So to fix this I have to take out the battery and then take out the sim card and replace everything. I end up doing this over 10 times a day. at first I thought it only did it when the phone was in my pocket, because i thought it moved around and the sim might get dislodged or something.
So i tried to stick a piece of folded up paper under the sim card to keep the card really tight in there, but the problem still persisted. I go to sleep at night, dont touch the phone at all, and wake up it is saying insert sim card.
then doing some further research on the internet through forums and blogs, it seems like this is a problem that many individuals have been having with this particular device. This is pretty sad since I paid around $400 for this phone when it came out. and to top it off, the problem started just a few weeks after my warranty expired. so now im stuck and dont know what to do.
then i came across this website, http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f148/5800-insert-s
I am in desperate need for someone to explain to me how to go about fixing this problem. Personally I think nokia should take care of this even though its out of warranty, The phone looks brand new and i have taken such good care of it, and this is what I get, my brother ran over his Nokia phone and it still works. Someone please help me!!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
nah, i have wiped it many times. over and over, praying that this final wipe is it. but no luck.
now i have been reading on this forum for the past three hours and came across someone with the same problem and he suggested that the battery connection may be loose, and now to come to think of it all this nonsense kind of started when i replaced the battery.
so i just grabbed my old battery , the one that came with the phone, which just stopped working and looked at the connectors on the battery. and i saw that the connectors had a much smaller gap in the original nokia battery compared to the connectors on the replacement battery. So that just might be it, im going it, ill try in the morning to take a knife and to pull out the connectors on the battery so they are closer to each other and that way when i put the battery in the phone, the prongs will tightly fit inside the battery . I hope it will work, and let you guys know.
thank you so so so much, this has been driving me insane!!! i have the original battery still but the connectors are loose so i'l get it sorted, again thank you!!!
