    The SIM Card is dislodged!! Switch your phone off n turn back on !!!

    I had bought a new Sony Ericsson T230 moblie a week back .... After i got out of a crowded mumbai local i took my phone out of mu jeans pocket to c if it was OK !!
    But :-( there was a message on the screen saying "The SIM Card is dislodged!! Switch your phone off n turn back on !!!"

    I switched off the phone and turned it back on ..... it started fine and is now working fine till now (14 hours after the incident)

    well can anyone tell me what the problem is ?? is it some major problem ???

    Regards
    Arvind

    very old sim ...
    gold contacts faded off
    scratched probably
    phone might have experienced trauma ...
    any of the above could be the problem
    solutions are
    take care of ur phone and dont drop it ( DUH!!! )
    remove sim and clean contacts with a lil alcohol
    actually the above are very crude and might work for a lil while longer
    i suspect ur sim is too old and scratched
    get a replacement sim for ur new mobile

    iinfi hey Pal dont' worry theres really no problem with the phone...it just happens sometimes..Like when theres is a contact lost betweem the Sim and Cell or the battery or Cell....you just need to reboot meaning restart the phone and you are done...
    It may have happened as you had your phone in your pants pocket and the pressure may have loosned the contact..!!!!!
    Anyway no need to exchange or press for warranty...i dont even think the seller will give you one as theres really no problem with the phone.. :p
