    I recently purchased a Nokia 8310, second hand, and i put my O2 SIM card in
    it, when i turn it on it displayes this message: 'SIM card registration
    failed'. And the phone has no signal no matter where i am. I thought that i
    would need to unlock it, so i downloaded the DTC4 Calculator app and typed
    in the codes, but there is no change. When i put a T-Mobile SIM in it works
    perfectly fine. Also, it does work sometimes with the O2 SIM but after a
    short while it displays that same message and is unusable. The O2 sim card
    is PAYG and is only about 3 months old, not damaged at all, as far as i
    know.

    Would appreciate any ideas...

    Regards,

    Liam

    Re: SIM card registration failed

    Pinched...seller has not paid the contract, etc...
    Does the T-Mobile dial out at all?
    If it doesn't then phone is blocked by the IMEI...

    Sounds like O2 has been blocked, why SIM fails...this usually causes all
    networks to be blocked now.
    Some networks block in different ways...
    Like O2 / Orange gives you a message.
    Whereas T-Mobile gives a signal, but won't make any calls, just beeps at
    you.

    Best thing you can do is hand it in to Mr Policeman or use it to hold your
    door open.

    If you don't mind up to 5 years in a cell, yes. Otherwise get a new
    (legitimate) phone and cut your losses.

    Don't feed the Trolls Ivor, I thought you knew better than that? ;-)

    Shouldn't imagine Ddevil gives much of a toss about UK laws (mind you, not
    sure if it couldn't still be prosecuted for incitement), seeing as it
    appears to be posting from the States.
