Default Pearl Flip "Insert SIM card"

Please Login to Remove!

Curious if anyone else is getting this message "Insert SIM Card". It happened to me twice in two weeks after getting the phone. The SIM card was seated fine. I had the SIM replaced and its still doing it. Today it happened twice. I have no choice but to pull the battery when this happens. Perhaps I just got a lemon.

:drool:

sounds like it my friend. take it to a warranty exchange center or, if it was within 30 days of purchase, take it back to the store you bought it from and they should exchange it back. BUT be sure and do it while the phone is having that problem.
