    Hello,

    I've just bought a V600 to replace my now deceased V50, but the V600 just
    powers up and says I should insert the SIM.
    I've tried the same sim that I've always used in a display-less V3688, and
    made a call from that alright.
    I've tried my wife's T-Mobile pay as you go sim in the V600, and that works
    fine.
    My SIM has worked okay in three different phones now, but is about 8 years
    old, any suggestions as to why the V600 doesn't like this SIM?

    New phone is locked?

    Different signal structure?

    3.3V not 5V phone?

    Dirty pads?

    etc.

    I have tried a T-mobile sim. O2 said I had a faulty hand-set, so I'm on
    the train now heading to London, where the O2 shop at Euston has another
    V600 waiting for me. Trouble is, I have also tried another O2 sim, and
    that worked fine. Still, I'll try the other V600 and see what happens.

    Nope, I bought it from an O2 shop and the sim is an O2 sim, so I would have
    been amazed if they were so dim as to sell me a phone that was locked to
    another network. The phone even comes on and displays the O2 animation
    (bubbles rising through very blue water) so that I think it has been through
    some sort of O2 filter.
    I have also tried another pay-as-you-go O2 sim in the phone since posting
    this originally, and that worked fine.
    Still just get 'Insert SIM' with my own though.
    I'm going to call in at the O2 shop on Euston station this morning and see
    if
    my SIM will work on the new V600 they have waiting for me.

    I was impressed with the efforts that the O2 shops went to in order to help
    (bought the phone in the Trafford Centre in Manchester, called them, they
    arranged for the V600 to be at a shop that I could reach without too much
    trouble) whereas Michelle and her team leader Brendan on the O2 member
    services number 0870 444 3333 were blunt and wrong. Without listening
    for long they just told me I definitely had a faulty hand-set and that I had
    to
    go back to the shop where I bought the thing and get them to either unlock
    it
    or exchange it. When I said that wasn't very helpful, Brendan said they
    were
    not even part of the same company. Brilliant, and rather typically British
    in
    customer 'service'. Any jobs going in America for middleware consultants?

    Winge moan, not very English of me, my appologies. I'll post again when (?)
    the problem is sorted out.

    Pete.
